TGPC: Why do you think Pageant contestants need to regularly take care of their Smile?
Nida: Participants in a pageant from what I understand needs a lot of confidence. If you have noticed, so many girls tend to cover their lips with their hands when they smile or close their mouth in their FB DPs or an Instagram pic. After sometime, it becomes a subconscious act. I want to give each an every one that confident and beautiful smile which will definitely be one of their defining aspects in achieving something big. It got to be a million dollar smile and when you don’t have it, we can still get it.
TGPC: What are the dental Treatments you provide at Dentokraftt that can help Pageant Contestants/Model get a million dollar smile?
Nida: There are wide range of options available from the minutest of procedures to more exhaustive ones. Neginning from composites / tooth and gum recontouring / teeth whitening / laminate venners / digital smile design / tooth jewelry etc
TGPC: What are basic oral care tips that you suggest every person should take care at home?
Nida: Brushing twice a day with a soft bristled tooth brush with a proper technique and minimal force/regular flossing/ gargling post meals are the simplest of the habits that will keep you good dental health.
TGPC: How long does it take to correct the misaligned teeth? What are the options you provide at Dentokraftt?
Nida: Well every individual will have a different plan of treatment depending upon each ones requirement. After a thorough smile design consult, we can range from as less as single sitting to multiples appointments. We believe in minimally invasive dentistry so obviously I tend to advice the simplest of the procedures to begin with.

TGPC: What are 3 big mistake people commit while taking their dental care?
