Brushing and Flossing
Regular brushing and flossing is the basic dental hygiene routine that our dentists encourage. This is the simplest and most inexpensive way through which you can ensure that you have white teeth. When you take utmost care of your dental hygiene, you can avoid problems that result in stained teeth.
Stained teeth can be caused by dental plaque that sticks on your teeth and gums. If it is not effectively removed, with time it can lead to the changing of the color of your teeth. With frequent flossing and regular brushing of teeth, you remove food particles and plaque, therefore allowing your teeth to maintain their original color.
Quit Smoking and Drinking
If you want to have white teeth, it is paramount that you stop smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol. These have been associated with a host of many dental conditions, one of them being stained and discolored teeth. The smoke from cigarettes contains tar and nicotine which can give your enamel an unpleasant yellow shade. You will be unable to achieve a perfect smile if you continue smoking. Alcohol contains small amounts of acids which can corrode your enamel, and this can cause your teeth to lose their natural color.
Watch What You Eat
Whatever you put in your mouth will have either a positive or negative impact on your dental health. Sweets and sugary foods will increase your chance of getting tooth decay and in the process lead to discolored teeth. The same goes for acidic foods. Aim for healthy foods that improve your dental health and help you prevent common dental problems. Foods such as apples, carrots, vegetables and non-citric fruits can help you maintain white teeth.
