As we age, eating habits, lifestyle choices, and gradual wear and tear of teeth can affect the glow of your smile. There are many ways to maintain teeth white, no matter how colored they become. The most important thing you can do to achieve and maintain a radiant white smile is to practice good oral hygiene habits at home. To achieve your goal of a bright smile, it is important to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. You also need to floss your teeth thoroughly every day. Using mouthwash can provide fresh breath and help whiter teeth.
Avoid drinks that stain the enamel
Coffee, red wine and tea have a staining effect on the color of your teeth. While these are some of the favorite drinks of all of us, they unfortunately do a lot of damage to the whiteness of our teeth. It is best to avoid these drinks completely to prevent stains, but if you do drink them, be sure to brush your teeth afterwards to prevent the stains from hardening, sticking and remaining on the tooth.
Cigarette smoking is not only harmful to your health, but can also stain your teeth. Moreover, it can be very difficult to remove them as they tend to get stuck in the openings and grooves of your enamel.
Practice good dental hygiene
It is important to practice good dental hygiene. That means brushing your teeth twice a day. Also flossing at least once a day. Use an electric toothbrush if you must.
The type of toothpaste you use
We recommend using fluoride toothpaste as it prevents tooth decay. Use mouthwash as well.
Mouthwash is great for reducing bacterial buildup and refreshing breath. On top of that, it can improve the appearance of your teeth. Gargle the mixture for 60 seconds before spitting it out again. For best results, use a mouthwash that contains hydrogen peroxide.
Brush your tongue and cheeks
Brushing your teeth removes debris and bacteria from your teeth and gums, but your tongue and cheeks need the same care. Gently brush your tongue and cheeks to remove bacteria and make your breath even fresher. You can buy a tongue cleaner or use a toothbrush that comes with it.
Finally, remove plaque and food debris from your teeth that your toothbrush cannot reach. To keep your teeth healthy, floss once a day. Ask your dentist to show you the correct flossing technique.
Limit your sugar intake
Sugar supports the growth of plaque-causing bacteria. By reducing your sugar intake, you will be able to improve the appearance of your teeth. If you have to eat sweet foods, be sure to brush your teeth soon after.
