As your providers of gentle dental in Howell, Michigan we have the tips for whiter teeth.
As you prepare for and head out to holiday parties, avoid teeth staining agents as much as possible. Things like red wine, dark juices, coffee, and black tea stain your teeth and should be kept to a minimum for a whiter smile.
If it’s snack time or the end of a meal, eat to clean. Crisp, fibrous foods like celery, carrots, apples, and even popcorn actually clean your teeth while you eat so they’re a great way to end a meal.
For a stain fighting, bacteria neutralizing boost, gargle apple cider vinegar before brushing. The vinegar will work to remove stains and kill bacteria for fresher breath and stain prevention.
To prevent staining, do everything you can to get all the bacteria out of your mouth when you’re brushing. That means brushing your tongue or using a tongue scraper.
Maintain the peak of effectiveness while brushing by replacing your toothbrush or brush head every three months. Effective brushing means a whiter smile!
