Are you dissatisfied with the colour of your pearly whites? Are you afraid to smile because your pearly whites are not pearly at all? Don’t worry, we can help! Working with your trusted family dentist Campbelltown, a brighter smile is within your reach.
Take a look at the 6 tips your A Plus Dental dentist has compiled to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
1. Brush and floss
A good brushing should be at least two minutes. However, some people find the two-minute duration difficult to reach. If this is true of you, humming while brushing might help you reach two minutes. That or you could upgrade to an electronic toothbrush. It covers a larger area faster, cleaning more surfaces within two minutes. Plus it has a timer!
Make flossing a habit too. Floss at least once a day, preferably before you sleep.
2. Choose a toothpaste with fluoride
There are many types of toothpaste in the market. Each promises the teeth of your dreams. Hence choosing can be very difficult.
That’s why we recommend using regular toothpaste or a fluoride-enhanced version. While whitening toothpastes may remove stains because of the mild-abrasives content, they do little to address older discolouration.
3. Rinse with a mouthwash with fluoride
Fluoride helps keep teeth strong and healthy by redepositing lost enamel. It also helps fight tooth decay by making teeth more resistant to acid attacks.
4. Check with your dentist
Not all plaque is removed during brushing. There are areas in your mouth that are not properly attended to, such as the molars. Your dentist can remove plaque from those areas through a scale and clean. Not only that, your dentist can also give you tips and create a personalised program you can follow to keep your teeth at their best.
5. Choose mouth-friendly foods
Ask your dentist or search the web for foods that can easily stain your teeth. Wines and those with citrus are common culprits. Of course, it’s not possible to remove them from your diet. But you can minimise intake. You can also opt for equally health alternatives to keep your teeth and your health in tiptop shape.
6. Stop smoking
Smoke residue such as nicotine and tar can leave yellow stains on your teeth. Smoking also produces bacterial plaque, which can lead to gum disease.
