Tips for beautiful teeth

February 3, 2015|  

Each of us wants to be as attractive as possible. One important part of how we look is our teeth and mouths. We need to take care of our oral health to maintain our loveliness. To keep your teeth beautiful or restore their natural beauty try some of these tips:

Have a dental check-up at least twice a year. Your dentist can help you fight off any problems while they are in their infancy. Plan ahead to keep your teeth gorgeous.“A big, bright smile isn’t just your best accessory, it also happens to be a key indicator of your overall well-being so it’s crucial to schedule a professional cleaning at least twice a year to help buff away tartar, bacterial deposits and external stains, and to check for cavities. During your visit, your dentist can also scope out early warning signs of sickness elsewhere in the body since poor oral hygiene has been linked to heart disease and diabetes.”
To whiten your teeth, ask your dentist about at-home whitening treatments.
Do not use green or blue mouthwashes, especially if they also contain alcohol. These dry the teeth can leave stain on your white perlies.
Sip beverages like coffee, sodas and red wine through a straw to decrease the contact with teeth. Other liquids? If it leaves a stain on a white shirt, it’ll stain teeth.
Apples, lettuce, broccoli and spinach can scrub your teeth when you don’t have time for a toothbrush.
Floss to clean and prevent buildup of plaque
Don’t brush your teeth right after drinking fruit juices with citrus and sodas. Rinse your mouth with water after these drinks and wait an hour to brush.
Use an electric toothbrush for better cleaning.

However you take care of your teeth, make sure you make regular appointments with a professional dentist like Dr. Mark Andrews.
