Flashing a great smile can make anyone’s day. Not only does it give you confidence, it gives you something to smile about. Whitening teeth have been a new trend for many years now and here are some ways to keep them gleaming.
Ever curious what stains teeth? There is a great trick to determine what does and doesn’t stain. If anything that can stain a white cotton T-shirt, then it can discolor your teeth. So watch out for coffee, tea, dark sodas, and fruit juices. Even sport drinks are worst than sweeten fruit juices as they wear down tooth enamel which results in thin, translucent, and discolored teeth. This becomes more noticeable as we slowly age therefore try to prevent sipping on those drinks for a long time and rinse right afterwards. You should attempt picking foods that contain less sugar and more calcium. Calcium makes your teeth stronger giving you that white color and lesser chances of tooth decay.
Salivia also plays a huge part of keeping your teeth clean and shiny. By having more salivia in your mouth, it will increase the likely chance it will wash all those food debris on top of your teeth. Plus, it will counterbalance the acid that causes tooth decay. The next time you are in the grocery store, pick up foods such as sugarless gum, strawberries, apples, carrots, pears, and celery as these foods produces a lot of salivia.
A home remedy for a whiter smile is using baking soda. Just simply dip the top of your wet toothbrush in some baking soda and brush for a minute or so and rinse. Remember, do not swallow and you could try using mouthwash to get rid of the bad taste.
Ladies, even picking a different shade lipstick for the day can cause discolored teeth. Stray away from oranges and brown hues and instead pick colors as pink, red, purple, and plums as those shades reduces the yellowness of your teeth.
Also remember, there are the common everyday tasks to keep your teeth white and healthy such as drinking water regularly, flossing/brushing your teeth after every meal, and rinsing your mouth.
