6 Tips For A Bright White Smile
HERE ARE SIX OF our favorite tips for keeping your smile bright and healthy:
Tip #1: Eat Healthy
Eat your way to whiter teeth by eating foods that are firm or crisp. This will help clean teeth as you chew. Apples are considered to be “nature’s toothbrush” and are a great way of cleaning teeth on the go or at lunch time when you are unable to brush your teeth.
Tip #2: Floss
Flossing removes some of the staining between teeth, making your smile instantly look whiter.
Tip #3: Quit Smoking
Smoking is one of the biggest causes of tooth decay and discoloration. The nicotine and tar in cigarettes causes teeth to darken, losing their natural white color.
Tip #4: Chew Gum
Neutralize the acid in your mouth by chewing gum. This helps to clean teeth by removing debris and it stimulates the production of saliva which helps neutralize acid.
Tip #5: Drink Water
Water is not only essential for overall well being, it is also vital for great oral health. Water acts as a natural cleaner and has the power to wash away bacteria and residue left on the teeth after eating. So drink a glass of water after every meal.
Tip #6: Eat Cheese
This may come as a surprise, but cheese is known for helping to maintain healthy white teeth because of its high calcium content.
