Habits That Will Make Your Teeth Whiter

Posted on 8/8/2022 by Evan
Habits That Will Make Your Teeth WhiterMost people strive to have white teeth. There are products and procedures that can help to whiten teeth. However, there are other alternatives you can do every day to help keep your teeth white. The following are some easy-to-follow tips that can help you maintain good oral health and whiten your teeth.

Avoid Food That Causes Stains

Tooth discoloration can be caused by a variety of things we consume daily. Your teeth are likely to be affected if something has a dark tint. Coffee, red wine, and even dark drinks and juices are examples of this.

Always clean your teeth immediately if you cannot stand the thought of giving up these habits. You may also want to explore an over-the-counter bleaching kit or a professional teeth-whitening operation.

Replace the Toothbrush

You may believe you are doing a good job of brushing your teeth, but you are re-infecting your mouth with bacteria that has built up on your toothbrush. Changing your toothbrush or the head of an electric one is the best way to keep your teeth and gums clean every few months.

The Use of a Tongue Scraper

One of the most common reasons for foul breath is plaque buildup, which can occur not just on the teeth but also on the tongue. Brushing your tongue is not as effective as using a tongue scraper.

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Stains and bacteria are killed by these two ingredients added to your oral hygiene program. Baking soda should be used as a toothpaste once a week and apple cider vinegar as a gargle every morning before brushing.

Brush Twice Daily

At the very least, clean your teeth when you wake up in the morning and before sleep at night. Since saliva tends to dry out during the night, it is important to brush before this vulnerable time. Brushing in the morning can remove plaque and bacteria accumulated while you slept. Learn more by scheduling an appointment with us today.
