Every other aspect of your appearance may be ideal. That’s great, but if you have ugly, yellow teeth, your confidence will not be as high as it otherwise would be. You can do something about whitening your teeth with some practical ideas that you can find in the article below.
Consider chewing herbs, like parsley or cilantro, if you want whiter teeth. These natural foods contain properties which are good for fighting germs and bacteria that help to keep your teeth white. However, remember to also use toothpaste on a regular basis.
You can make your own whitening toothpaste by mixing baking soda with peroxide. Use this mixture to brush with for about five minutes. Avoid brushing too vigorously or your gums may bleed and become irritated.
Ask your dentist for teeth whitening advice before you start treating your teeth with any store bought chemicals. A professional will know the pros and cons of the available treatments.
If you are experiencing any oral problems that should be handled by a oral professional, you should not try any whitening that involves bleaching. The whitening can cause your teeth to become further damaged and cause you to have pain that could have been avoided. Consult your dentist and ask about other teeth whitening methods.
There are a ton of easy, natural treatments that you can do at home to get your teeth whiter. A great technique involves baking soda. You can purchase toothpaste with baking soda included, or you can use a box that you have in your pantry.
To keep your smile white, after drinking stain-causing beverages, drink a glass of water. When you use water to chase dark drinks, such as tea, coffee and wine, the water will stop the pigment in those beverages from staining teeth. Try drinking through a straw to avoid contact with your teeth or adding non-skim milk to your coffee to prevent stains.
One great way to keep your teeth clean is to consume plenty of fibrous fruits and veggies that do a great job of naturally scrubbing your teeth. For example, cucumbers, broccoli and apples are all wonderful types that will work. Eat these raw, and chew them thoroughly to give them the chance to scrub your teeth. Use all your teeth while chewing to clean as many areas as possible.
If you are thinking about tooth whitening, always remember that this process only whitens your natural teeth. If you have dental work such as veneers, implants, crowns or fillings in the front of your mouth, those will remain the shade that they are. Whitening the natural teeth will make dental work that has been done stick out and won’t look as good.
Maintaining white teeth is difficult unless you get your semi-annual dental cleanings. You should get your teeth cleaned at least two times every year. Set up your next appointment while you are there so you will not forget to do it. Have the office call you with a reminder.
Perhaps you are not drinking the right kind of beverage for your teeth, and this is leading to the staining. Teeth can be discolored by drinking red wine and coffee. Try to minimize the amount of these beverages you consume, and use a straw to reduce staining.
Whitening pens are a convenient and mess-free alternative to traditional teeth whitening products. This gel is similar to bleach so be careful. Use caution when you use this method and don’t overdo it.
There is no need to live with a dull, unattractive smile when you follow the advice in this article. Once you start to use these tricks, you will notice an increase in your self-esteem and have a good reason to smile at everyone you see.
