Before King Louis the 14th, people let their teeth rot until they fell out of their gums or went to the dentist to have them pulled but not replaced. But because Louis was plagued by dental problems his entire life and because he placed such a premium on appearance, French society took notice, still opting for extraction but willingly investing in attractive false teeth.

Although many people wouldn’t count visiting the dentist among their most favorite activities, there is nothing nicer than feeling confident enough to smile. And a brilliant smile requires not just regular flossing and brushing but frequent visits to a dentist, for professional treatment of teeth and gums.
