3 Tips for Maintaining Your Dazzling White Smile

man looking out windowNow that you’ve achieved a gleaming bright smile, you want to keep it looking that way! Here are some simple tips to follow to maintain your beautiful results:

#1. Maintain a good oral hygiene routine

Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a whitening toothpaste that contains fluoride. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush all surfaces of your teeth, including the hard-to-reach areas. Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth.

#2. Limit consumption of staining substances

To help preserve your white smile, reduce your intake of foods and beverages known to stain teeth. Examples include coffee, tea, red wine, cola, berries, and tomato-based sauces. If you consume these substances, try to rinse your mouth with water afterwards, or brush your teeth within 30 minutes to minimise staining, or use a straw.

#3. Quit smoking and avoid tobacco products

Smoking and using tobacco products can cause significant tooth discolouration. Quitting smoking not only improves your overall health, but also helps maintain a brighter smile. Tobacco stains are often stubborn and may require professional intervention to remove, so it’s best to avoid them altogether.
