A great way to look and feel your best in time for the holiday season is with teeth whitening at your local Lake Jackson dentist. Professional teeth whitening is faster, easier and far more effective than anything you can get over the counter.
Important Tips for Whitening Your Teeth
Having bright, white teeth can help you feel confident – especially around the holidays. You’ll be spending time around family and friends, so why not look your best?
Let’s look at how to whiten teeth better and faster:
Brush at Least Twice Daily
Brushing is the most important thing you can do to keep your teeth white. Eliminating plaque and food particles will keep stains from soaking deeper into the enamel. Toothpaste with baking soda can help remove superficial stains over time.
Avoid Dark Beverages
All teeth get a little bit darker over time, but diet has a lot to do with it. Avoiding dark beverages like coffee, tea and wine can make a big difference! Also be careful of foods like blueberries and blackberries.
Be Careful Using OTC Whitening Agents
When trying to whiten teeth at home, people can spend hundreds of dollars on washes, toothpastes and gels. The problem: Results are slow. Used incorrectly, some products can be painful and irritate gums. Follow all instructions carefully and leave eight weeks to see results.
What about Apple Cider Vinegar, Turmeric and “Oil Pulling”?
If you go online, you’ll find tons of ideas that purport to be natural whitening techniques. Sadly, no research backs these up. The active ingredient in pharmacy whitening gels is hydrogen peroxide, but it should only be used in a specialized dental product.
