Get Whiter Teeth With These 5 Tips!

Notice your teeth getting yellow or stained quite frequently and not sure what to do about it? There are a few straightforward steps you can take that will help reduce your stain buildup and allow you to enjoy brighter teeth for a longer period of time! Here’s what you can try at home:

Less dark foods and liquids

Any dark foods and liquids like tomato sauces, coffee, tea, red wine, curry etc lead to faster stain accumulation. It’s best to reduce consuming these ingredients, stick to white sauces when possible or opt for drinking through a straw to limit the amount of contact you have with it.

Hydrate more

Drink less sugary drinks and more water during the day! Not just a great way to keep hydrated, drinking more water is also an effective way to cleanse your mouth naturally of any lingering bacteria and keep it clean.

Use an electric toothbrush

An electric toothbrush is a better way to get your teeth cleaned fast. The extra movement helps ensure that your gums are thoroughly cleaned and also helps tackle any stain accumulation that occurs between your visits to the dentist.

Schedule regular appointments

It’s generally recommended to have your teeth cleaned every 6 months in order to remove any superficial stains and plaque. Allowing this buildup to remain any longer gives it more time to settle into your teeth’s tiny pores. This ultimately makes it harder to remove.

We recommend touching up on your whitening treatment after every routine checkup, when your teeth are at their cleanest! Remember, everyone has a yellow undertone to their teeth but if you feel like yours needs a little extra care, call our expert dental team at SDG for more guidance!
