4 Bright Ideas for Keeping Teeth White

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-tooth-comparison

Wouldn’t it be nice if your teeth could be whitened once and stay stain free forever? Unfortunately, stains quickly start appearing after teeth come into contact with darker foods and drinks. To find the best teeth whitening method for you, try these helpful hints.

  1. Keep Teeth Sparkling Clean
    Dentists say that practicing proper dental care is one of the best teeth whitening methods for maintaining a whiter smile. Brush at least twice daily and floss at least once daily to remove plaque and stains before they build up. Consider occasionally using a whitening toothpaste, which has strong abrasives that can scrub away stains. But since these stronger teeth whitening pastes can easily damage tooth enamel, only use them once a week.
  2. Brush Away Stains
    After consuming stain-causing foods or beverages, try to brush your teeth or rinse your mouth immediately to remove any remnants of products.
  3. Avoid Staining Substances
    According to dentists, prevention provides the very best teeth whitening protection. So since darker foods and beverages can easily stain your smile, stay smart about consuming them by choosing lighter foods and using a straw when drinking darker beverages.
  4. Touch Up Teeth
    While even the best teeth whitening method requires touch-up treatments, the frequency of these follow-ups is based on the way you whitened and how often teeth are exposed to stains from food, beverages, or smoking. It may be time for a touch-up every six months or every couple of years.
