Maintaining white teeth is harder than most people think. Sure, you brush your teeth and even purchase whitening products to help with brightening your smile, but you can’t seem to keep your teeth pearly white.
If you desperately want whiter teeth, these 3 helpful tips from your dentist can keep your smile strong and shining! Learn more about how to keep your healthy teeth gorgeous here.
3 Tips for Brighter Teeth!
1. Flossing Can Keep Your Smile Whiter.
Little do many people know, excellent home hygiene is the best way to keep your teeth white for longer periods of time. Flossing every day will go a long way in making your smile look good because it removes excess plaque and bacteria from your mouth. Even the best toothbrushes and other dental tools can’t fit between teeth like floss does. Proper flossing is a sure way to prevent bacteria and plaque buildup in your mouth. By removing these dental debris, staining factors like foods, drinks, and tobacco have less chance to change the color of your teeth.
2. Watch What You Eat.
As mentioned above, there are foods and drinks that can affect the brightness of your smile. You can avoid staining foods like pasta sauces (deep reds like marinara sauce), berries and dark-colored fruit. Dark colored drinks like red wine can also change the color of your teeth.
The best way to still have a white smile and enjoy these foods is to eat and drink them in moderation. Also, you can brush your teeth and rinse your mouth out after enjoying them.
3. Don’t Waste Your Money on Drugstore Whitening Products.
You may think it’s easier to quickly buy a whitening kit at home, but the truth is that you may not achieve the results you want in the time period you’re anticipating. In fact, you can waste a lot of money on low-quality products with matching results.
To your surprise, you can actually whiten your teeth either in a dental office (quicker and more effectively) or from the comfort of your own home with the help of a high-quality at-home whitening kit. You can trust your dentist to help you achieve the results you truly want.
Here’s why you should choose to get your teeth whitened by a professional rather than purchasing a drugstore product:
- You don’t have to worry about making a mess or bleaching your stuff at home.
- Get the results you want in as quick as one office visit.
- Your whitening results will last much longer than with an over-the-counter whitening treatment.
- Your safety is your dentist’s priority.
- Professional products ensure the dazzling results you want.
