According to James Brown, hair is the first thing and teeth the second. He also said if you have good hair and teeth, you got it all. He is right in a way. Keeping the teeth white is really important. Apart from hair implants, white teeth is another area of cosmetic improvement that interests both men and women all over the world. There are so many options now available in cosmetic dentistry, from veneers and bleaching, to indirect porcelain and ceramic crowns. There is an option for everyone but these treatments can be quite pricey, which is why many people can’t afford to get them done.
When it comes to teeth whitening, like with many things, prevention is better than cure. If you can’t afford to get your pearly whites done at the dentist, here are some little changes you can start making from today to improve the look of your teeth.
Get a great electric toothbrush
The first step to cleaning your teeth is to get a great electric toothbrush. Manual toothbrushes can’t clean your teeth like electric toothbrushes can. I have been using the OralB electric toothbrush you can see below for years now and it has changed the way I clean my teeth. This toothbrush is so smart. It has five cleaning modes including deep clean, whitening and sensitive. It comes with different heads and a travel case.
It is currently on offer now on Amazon for only £69.99 (previous price was £229.99) so grab it while the offer lasts.
Brush properly and use the right toothpaste
Many people underestimate the power of brushing their teeth properly. You should brush for about 2 minutes twice a day and floss as well. Using a good electric toothbrush and brushing properly will help your teeth stay clean and white. You should also ensure you are using the right toothpaste. Many toothpastes promise to make your teeth many shades whiter but majority of them cannot do that. However, I find that this Sensodyne Pronamel Enamel Care Toothpaste, 75 ml, Gentle Whitening seems to do the work more than others. It helps remove surface stains and prevents teeth yellowing.
Watch what you consume
Watching what you consume is the most important tip of all when it comes to health and pearly white teeth. Certain foods have the power to discolour our teeth more than others. Wine, tea, coffee, and soft drinks can stain our teeth so do drink them with moderation and obey the rules above to ensure your teeth stays as white as possible. Also, drinking water immediately after eating or drinking other fluids will help your teeth stay white.
