Everyone wants a beautiful, white smile, but it can be hard to keep your white with all of the food and drinks we take in daily. Anything from tea, soda, wine and just aging can cause tooth discoloration. When trying to counteract the effects of discolored teeth, teeth whitening is one of the easier options available.
The Best Methods for Keeping Your Teeth White
Brush and floss twice a day – Brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes not only eliminates plaque and cavity-causing bacteria, brushing and flossing also helps to polish the tooth’s surface, removing stains from the surface and between the teeth.
Quit tobacco – Eliminating tobacco, both smoking and chewing, can naturally improve your smile.
Visit the dentist – Make an appointment for a professional cleaning and examination twice a year to maintain a whiter smile.
Avoiding Bad Habits
Be cautious when researching ways to get healthy white teeth naturally. Not “all-natural”, at-home remedies have been proven to help. For example, baking soda frequently can cause tooth enamel to break down, leading to increased surface sensitivity of the tooth. Untreated tooth erosion can lead to damage of nerves and the need for a root canal treatment.
