There are many ways to keep your smile bright and shiny. Through your habits at home and your dentist’s efforts you can gain and maintain a bright and appealing smile. Here are some tips to keeping your smile at its best.
Will it Stain? Then Rinse
If you are drinking a beverage that will stain fibers or porous surfaces, it has the potential to stain your teeth as well. If you drink beverages such as coffee, red wine, or even deeply colored fruit juices, rinse your mouth with water soon afterward to discourage staining.
Practice Good Hygiene
Good dental hygiene will go a long way to maintaining the whitest smile possible. Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day, and replace your toothbrush every three months. Remember to floss at least once per day. Add an antibacterial mouth rinse to your routine to cut down on plaque.
Get Professional Teeth Whitening
When your natural teeth are not as white as you like even though you are taking care of them, professional whitening can be the answer to get the bright smile you want. The teeth whitening treatment consists of application of a peroxide gel over your teeth, then having the gel exposed to a special light to activate the peroxide. Expect this treatment to give you a whiter and brighter smile for about a year.
If professional whitening is not giving you the results you want and you have some imperfections in your teeth that you would like to correct as well, porcelain veneers can be a good option. They can hide minor chips or cracks in your teeth and smooth out uneven areas with their custom bonded fit. They will last for several years and take two office visits to complete.
A bright smile can boost your confidence and help you to look younger. The best plan is to work with your dentist to see which teeth whitening options are best for you.
