How to Get the White Smile You've Always Wanted

Teeth whitening is among the most commonly performed cosmetic dentistry procedures. When you think about how much this treatment can improve the look of someone’s smile, it comes as no surprise that it continues to grow in popularity. If you want to enjoy the benefits of a whiter smile, then use the following tips:

Whiten your teeth.

If you’ve always wanted a whiter smile, then the first step that you should take is to consider your whitening options. Today, you will find that there are mouth rinses and toothpastes intended to help whiten your teeth. While these products can help you maintain your bright smile after whitening, they aren’t likely to make a significant impact on the color of your teeth. Instead, consider using over-the-counter teeth whitening kits or talk to your dentist about professional teeth whitening. Seeing your dentist to have your teeth whitened means that you can enjoy a noticeably whiter smile in as little as a single, 1-hour appointment.

Avoid staining foods.

Once your teeth are whitened, it’s important to avoid staining foods and drinks if you want it to stay brighter for longer. Foods like berries and tomato-based items can cause your teeth to stain. Drinking sodas, red wine, coffee, and tea can also cause your whitened smile to become dull. When you do choose to eat or drink staining foods and beverages, remember to rinse your mouth with water or brush your teeth afterward.

See your dentist.

Besides helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy, regular visits to your dentist can also help you to maintain your whiter smile. When you visit your dentist twice per year for teeth cleanings, this can help prevent stains from building up on your enamel, and your dentist can let you know when it might be time to touch up your smile with additional whitening.
