Natural Tips to keeping teeth whiter
For those who do not want to use any harsh products, waste money buying the latest product, or just want to complement your cleaning routine? Here are some tips to keeping your teeth white.1. Brush regularly. As simple as this sounds, it’s not always easy to remember to brush twice a day.
2. Choose the right toothpaste. There are way too many options when choosing your paste. For whiter teeth opting for paste, not gel, will aid in a whiter smile, with no extra effort or cost. The paste has a natural whitener, baking soda, which natural keeps your teeth whiter.
3. Don’t brush right after eating, drinking something acidic. You may want to brush your teeth immediately after that cup of coffee, however, your enamel is weaker right after being exposed to an acidic drink and may be damaged over time. The best option is to swish your mouth out with water and wait an hour to brush your teeth.
4. Avoid unnecessary sugar. Sugar creates a large amount of plaque buildup, which results in discolored teeth. Try limiting sugary drinks and candy, especially.
5.Avoid dyes. The colorful drinks such as koolaid, power drinks and juice will discolor your teeth over time. Same as colored icing, fruit snacks and other dyed foods. Consuming these foods and drinks are the same as dipping your teeth in food coloring. Try to limit your intake of dyed foods and liquid to reduce the discoloration effect.
