Tips For Keeping Teeth White
Having a gorgeous set of white teeth can boost your confidence and make you appear more attractive, friendly and approachable towards others. It’s important to make sure your teeth are kept white after whitening treatments, or just to have them sparkly in general. You will see that keeping your teeth white is not a difficult task. It just takes commitment and minor changes in your everyday life to accommodate your high maintenance teeth. By following these tips, you will be able to take care of those high maintenance pearly whites:
Avoid stain-causing liquids and foods
• Be wary of liquids that stain your teeth, such as coffee, red wine, and tea. • If you really want to consume these products, use a straw so the beverages won’t come in contact with your front teeth. • After you have consumed the stain-causing beverages, brush or rinse right after to reduce any appearance of stains and to protect your teeth. • Stay away from any sugary foods or liquids that cause discoloration, such as candy and soda.
Follow Good Hygiene Practices
• Be ultra-hygienic. Meaning, brush your teeth twice a day • Make sure to floss daily, as it will also remove any plaque from your teeth and keeps your gums healthy. • Only once or twice a week, use whitening tooth paste. After, just use regular toothpaste. • Use a mouth wash (that does NOT whiten) after brushing with regular toothpaste. • Get other tools that may help clean your teeth, such as inter-dental brushes or invest in an electronic tooth brush.
Touch-up treatments • Depending on which beverages you consume regularly, you may need to try touch-up treatments. • Get a treatment every 6 months to ensure your teeth stay white. • If you drink, smoke or are an avid consumer of beverages that cause stains, you may need to get more frequent touch-ups. Following these tips will ensure not only healthy teeth, but maintaining the shine and glow of your teeth. Just make sure to smile!
