4 Tips for Tooth Whitening
Everyone wants whiter teeth, but not everybody has the discipline required to brush their teeth twice a day every day. Teeth help you every day to chew and speak, but they can also make or break your appearance. Do you want a good combination of healthy teeth and whiter teeth.
If you want whiter teeth to stick around for as long as possible, then why not check out some of these amazing tips for tooth whitening.
- Have a professional teeth cleaning.
Professional teeth cleaning at your dental office is always far superior to store-bought whitening strips. The solution used during a professional teeth cleaning is made up of essentially the same ingredients, but the application method is better, and it will have longer contact with your teeth causing them to whiten faster.
- Avoid stain-causing foods.
What good is whitening your teeth if you are going to continue staining them on a daily basis? The best way to whiten your teeth would be to avoid stain-causing foods such as coffee and tea. This way, when you whiten your teeth, you are not staining them at the same time.
- Use whitening toothpaste.
Although whitening toothpaste is not a good way to whiten your teeth on its own, it is very effective to supplement a teeth whitening regimen. Whitening toothpaste is also made up of the same ingredients as a professional teeth cleaning, but it stays against the surface of the tooth for much less time.
- Floss every day.
Flossing every day seems to be one of the hardest things for people to do, but it is one of the most effective ways of keeping your teeth white. It is difficult for your toothbrush to clean in between your teeth. Flossing is the only reliable way to ensure that your mouth is fully clean on a daily basis.
