Our teeth are not flawlessly white by nature, and most people feel that they could enhance their smile with brighter, whiter teeth. Over time, our teeth develop stains from eating and drinking foods and beverages.
Many people are discontented with the colour of their teeth and the quality of their smile.
Teeth also yellow with age. There are various ways to safely remove the stains and the yellowing, leaving a whiter, more radiant smile.
Here’s what you can do to keep your teeth clean and improve your smile.
#1 Daily Brushing and Flossing
Use a soft toothbrush to avoid damaging your gums.
You may also use an electric toothbrush that utilises sonic waves to clean teeth.
#2 Use a normal, fluoride-enhanced toothpaste
So-called whitening toothpaste does not remove stains, rather it contains polishing agents that are abrasive to the tooth surface.
#3 Fluoride mouthwashes can aid in keeping teeth clean
Fluoride bonds with tooth enamel to increase the hardness and smoothness of teeth.
This in turns makes it easier to fight plaque, calculus, and tooth decay.
#4 Visit your dentist regularly
Teeth cleaning can keep your teeth free of plaque and calculus, which can cause discolouration and staining.
#5 Avoid foods that stain your teeth
Teeth are susceptible to harsh chemicals and can absorb those substances when they come into contact with them.
#6 Stop smoking or using any other tobacco products
The tar in tobacco sticks to the surfaces of the teeth.
It directly stains the enamel, makes it more difficult to clean teeth, and aids plaque build-up and calculus formation.
All of these practices will help you get your whitest and brightest natural smile.
Teeth Whitening Procedures at your Deer Park dentist
Listed below are two of the most popular types of whitening procedures:
Some dentists recommend an at-home whitening kit to maintain the whiteness of your teeth. Smoking and excessively drinking liquids that cause stains may require more frequent touch-ups. Consult your dentist for more information about home whitening.
Whitening toothpaste, strips or a whitening pen are cheaper and less effective options. These products are available in supermarkets and drugstores.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Your dentist offers the fastest and most efficient professional whitening treatments. Whitening treatments received from your dentist produce results much more quickly than over-the-counter options.
Teeth are visibly whiter after just one visit. Additional home whitening methods may be recommended to ensure the long-term success of these professional whitening treatments.
