Top Tips for Whiter Teeth

Top Tips for Whiter TeethWould you like whiter teeth?

Follow our simple tips below to maintain that bright white smile!

  1. Maintain good oral hygiene. Daily thorough brushing and flossing is essential to keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
  2. Avoid over the counter teeth whitening products. Many of these products are highly acidic and can damage the tooth surface and increase sensitivity. If you would like to have your teeth professionally whitened, why not give us a call!
  3. Cut down on food and drink that stains teeth. The common culprits tend to be lots of nice things like tea, coffee, red wine, curry etc. If you have consumed these, try and clean your teeth soon after!
  4. Drink carbonated drinks and juices through a straw!  A simple little trick… and it works! The liquid bypasses the front teeth and reduces the rate at which staining occurs.
  5. Avoid smoking! An obvious one really. As well as causing staining, smoking can also lead to gum disease, bad breath and increases your risk of developing mouth cancer.
  6. Stop biting those nails! Nasty habits like nail biting and pen chewing will easily damage and chip away the enamel of your teeth. The enamel is the hard outer layer of the tooth – the whitest part of the tooth. And once it’s gone… it’s gone!
  7. Drink plenty of water. We are all aware of how important it is to do this, but drinking and rinsing regularly will help to reduce the build-up of nasty stains and residues on the teeth.
  8. Sugar-free gum – chewing this helps stimulate the production of saliva which naturally cleanses the teeth and gums.
