As we all know, there are many teeth whitening products on the market, but there are many little things you can do regularly that can also help. Many of the tips here are so easy that you can start immediately, and can help you get the beautiful white teeth that you have always wanted.
If you are looking to whiten your teeth then you may want to consider avoiding some bad habits which can cause tooth discoloration. The three big culprits are coffee, soda, and cigarettes. By avoiding these things you will make it so much easier to whiten your teeth and keep them that way.
Eat crunchy fruit and vegetables like apples and celery to help remove surface stains on your teeth. Think of them as like a loofah for your smile. They exfoliate the teeth before the stains can get deeply attached to the surface of your teeth. Fibrous foods like spinach, lettuce and broccoli will also work.
If you do choose to go down the DIY teeth whitening products route, avoid the whitening products from having contact with your gums. You should also pay attention to any unusual tooth or gum sensitivities while using any type of teeth whitening products. Make sure the tray or strips fit correctly. If you notice pain or irritation, stop using the product immediately and consult your dentist.
These at-home teeth whitening products can work well, but if you avoid the things that cause the stains in the first place, then you really won’t have to worry about using them.
Make appointments with your local dentist regularly to clean your teeth. There is nothing that can be as thorough as a dentist in cleaning your teeth and helping you keep your smile white. If you have the dentist clean your teeth once or even twice a year, you will see that you have to worry less about keeping your teeth white – the only exception is if you are a smoker.
As well as just cleaning your teeth, dentists also perform teeth whitening services. Dentists can whiten teeth very effectively using a combination of chemicals and lasers. Results are very fast, but can also be quite expensive. This cosmetic dentistry technique is becoming more popular as people are looking for fast and effective treatments to whiten their teeth.
To summarize, it is pretty basic to keep your teeth white as long as you just follow the steps that we have provided here for you. Hopefully, this will give you a positive outlook on how you can improve your own teeth and for your smile to look as beautiful as it was meant to.
