4 Tips for Keeping Teeth White

Posted by: Dr. Sirakian     Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Want beautiful, bright, white teeth? If you do, then here are some tips to keep your teeth sparkling.

1. Floss

If you’ve heard it once, then you’ve heard it a million times, flossing is important! Flossing helps remove food debris and plaque from between your teeth and prevents cavities from forming. The only way to prevent cavities between your teeth is to floss well and daily.

2. Avoid sticky snacks

If you love sticky candy then your teeth are at risk. Gummy and sticky candies get easily trapped between teeth and can cause decay. If the candy is left in between teeth, it will cause a buildup of plaque and cavities. Rinse your mouth with water after eating sticky foods to help remove the sugar and debris.

3. Watch what you drink

Drinking a sugary cup of coffee all day can do serious damage to your teeth. Sipping on sugary drinks is like a sugar bath for your teeth, which can cause serious decay. Opt for water instead, to keep your mouth healthy.

4. Don’t brush aggressively

Brushing too hard can take a serious toll on your enamel. Brushing aggressively causes enamel to thin which makes it easier for cavities to form and for decay to happen.

Try these tips to keep teeth healthy and white.
