You know what a confidence boost having white teeth is. You’re never afraid to show your best smile. Although it is now easier to get your teeth whitened, having pearly white teeth is not permanent. The food you eat and beverages you drink can stain your teeth. If not checked, you’ll go back to the yellow stained teeth you had before.
And with the stained teeth comes dampened confidence. Of course, you need to eat and drink to survive. You can’t stop doing that because you want to maintain your pearly smile. However, there are ways you can maintain your pearly white.
- Brush your teeth immediately after taking stain-prone food or beverages
Not all food and drink stain your teeth. But if you want to maintain white teeth you need to identify the ones that you take regularly.
Common culprits are coffee, tea and wine. The trick to preventing them from staining your teeth is to brush your teeth with a good whitening toothpaste like this Curaprox Black is White Whitening Toothpaste for £19.95. Doing this will help to drastically reduce the possibility of stains and keeps your teeth really white.
Another clever way to prevent staining from drinks is to drink through a straw. When you drink through a straw you prevent the drink from coming in contact with your teeth.
- Use whitening strips or whitening trays periodically
Maintaining the whiteness of your teeth can be as easy as periodically using over the counter teeth whitening products. Over the counter whitening products like whitening strips or whitening trays can keep any sign of staining at bay.
However, whitening strips and trays whiten your teeth by wearing away the enamel. The enamel is the outer covering of your teeth. The more you use such products, the more you risk damaging your teeth. So be extremely cautious with how often you use them.
- Brush with baking soda
Baking soda is a natural product to help with teeth whitening. Just like the over the counter whitening products, baking soda wears away the enamel. However, if you restrict the use of baking soda to once a week, it will help to reduce the risk of damaging your teeth. It’s still a good way to maintain your pearly white teeth.
- Use teeth whitening toothpaste
There are special toothpastes that help make your teeth whiter. So, instead of using ordinary toothpaste and still face the risk of staining, you can use teeth whitening toothpaste and keep your teeth clean and white. I think this is pretty handy since teeth whitening toothpastes don’t only maintain the whiteness of your teeth but they also ensure your overall oral health.
- Eat more crunchy vegetables and fruits
Crunchy vegetables and fruits act as a natural scrub that will help clean your eat at each bite. Imagine how easy it would be to maintain your white teeth by just eating healthy crunchy vegetables and fruits like carrots, apples and even celery. As you bite into these vegetables and fruits they rub against your teeth and in the process whiten them. Not only do they help to maintain your white teeth, they also help you live healthier.
