Say Goodbye To Dingy, Yellow Teeth Forever

31 / 01 / 2016

Your hair is glossy and lies perfectly, you dress in stylish clothes and your complexion is glowing. That’s great, but if you have ugly, yellow teeth, your confidence will not be as high as it otherwise would be. Fortunately, this article is filled with tips and tricks for all aspects of whitening your teeth.

Cleaning your teeth regularly and properly through dentist appointments is the first step toward whiter teeth. Get your teeth professionally cleaned every six months and always schedule your next appointment while in the office for your cleaning. Twice-a-year cleaning is covered by the majority of dental insurance carriers, so it only makes good sense to take advantage of the service.

Do not use any product that increases tooth sensitivity. It is painful even though it is only temporary. If your teeth do become sensitive, discontinue use of the product and see your dentist. He will probably be able to suggest something that is suitable for sensitive teeth.

You can help protect your teeth from staining by rinsing your mouth with water after eating. If you rinse your mouth after you eat, you can keep your teeth whiter. This will help you avoid stains that are difficult to get off your teeth.

Baking Soda

For an easy, cost-effective tooth whitener, mix some baking soda in water. Baking soda works at gently polishing your teeth to remove stains. First, run your toothbrush under some running water. Then dip it into the baking soda to get a kind of paste to brush with.

Whiten your teeth by brushing them with baking soda. Baking soda is a natural remedy that is great for whitening your teeth. Avoid gum irritation that can be caused by the baking soda by brushing gently.

Don’t drink beverages that can stain so that you can have white teeth. Coffee, black tea and colas can all have this effect. If it is not possible for you to eliminate these beverages from your routine, try to drink water in between gulps.

You should eat an apple if you want to make your teeth look whiter in a very short amount of time. Apples are abrasive, and they will provide your teeth with a deep cleaning without damaging enamel.

Red Wine

Red wine is a drink that can negatively impact the way that your teeth look. Wine can discolor and yellow your teeth if you consume this drink frequently. Slowing down your red wine intake or stopping entirely is really the only solution.

Make sure that you are whitening only natural teeth if you desire optimal results from your program. Any dental work like crowns, fillings or veneers will stay their original shade. Keep this in mind or you end up with a not-so-white smile, as any teeth that have artificial elements can stand out from your natural teeth that the whitening worked on.

If you are in a hurry to get a whiter smile, a quick visit to your dentist can help you. Getting the whitening teeth results you really want can require professional help. Go to your dentists regularly to make sure your teeth are healthy. Do the smart thing, and talk to your dentist about your plan to whiten your teeth.

You can use hydrogen peroxide to whiten your teeth. Simply soak a washcloth in the mixture. After the washcloth is damp, begin by rubbing it up against the surface of your teeth. The peroxide will work to minimize any stains and the washcloth will work to scrub the discoloration away.

You can change the look of your smile by simply changing your lipstick color. You should wear lipstick that has a blue base or just simply use a gloss. Your teeth can appear whiter with colors like berries and blue-tinted reds. Do not wear matte lipsticks because they can make your teeth appear to be dingy.

As the tips above indicate, you do not have to make your way through life with discolored teeth. You will feel more confident, and you will smile all of the time when you use these tips.
