Get A Beautiful Smile With These Tips

03 / 01 / 2016

Not only are white teeth considered a sign of beauty, they also signify health. You undoubtedly want to look and feel the best that you can. The tips and tricks combined into this article were designed for you to get a whiter smile. Try these tips for a brighter smile of your own.

This is not as detrimental to your teeth as the whitening strips on the market. Take a sip of hydrogen peroxide and swish it vigorously but do not swallow it. Do this once or twice a week.

No amount of bleaching your teeth will cause your crowns to whiten. Your teeth will be whitened by whitening products, but the crowns will remain the same color. Keep this in mind to save yourself from having two-toned teeth and crowns.

You should attempt to have a small toothbrush with you at all times. This will allow you to brush your teeth after eating any sugary foods. Sticky foods tend to stick to your teeth, and start staining them. Brush your teeth for a minute or two immediately after you eat your treat. Even without toothpaste, giving your teeth a good scrub and rinsing thoroughly with water will prevent food stains from setting.

Drink lots of water in order to maintain the whiteness of your teeth. It helps you to both rinse off your teeth as well as prevent staining. Therefore, drinking water, especially while eating and after eating, is very important.

Depending on the severity of your stained teeth and how quickly you want the job done, you might want to consider a dentist to help whiten your teeth. Of course having your teeth whitened by a dentist is more expensive than over-the-counter products, but the results are well worth it.

Once you have taken the time to whiten your teeth, you should always keep them clean by brushing regularly throughout the day. Bacteria grows because of food on teeth. Since your teeth may be soft following a dental whitening, the bacteria growth can cause great damage to occur. This is why brushing is so important.

Smoking is a mistake on many levels, and the impact it has on your smile is just one. If you have started, create a plan to stop. Why spend money on expensive whitening teeth procedures, then undo the results by smoking? You will have wasted your money. Any good work on whitening you have accomplished is very quickly destroyed by the staining effects of smoke.

Whitening Toothpaste

Try using a whitening toothpaste. A whitening toothpaste will prevent stains from appearing, even if it is not as strong other methods. They scrub your teeth using a silica abrasive, which is mild and will not wear away your enamel.

Use different lip color to improve the appearance of your smile. Something glossy usually works well to brighten up your teeth, or you can give lip makeup with a slightly blue base a try. For instance, if you are planning on wearing red lipstick, choose a blue-based red rather than an orange-based red to make your teeth look whiter. Stay away from lipsticks or lip color that has a matte, or un-shiny, finish, as these make teeth look dingy.

Ideally, the information you have learned in this article will be able to aid you in your teeth whitening decisions. The prospect of a more gorgeous smile will motivate you to look and feel your very best. Smile brighter!
