Tips to Keep Your Smile Bright!
Wearing white after Labor Day, we’re all familiar with this fashion faux thought. While we’re not fashion experts, at my family dental practice in Ashburn, we tend to disagree with this rule. We believe that white smiles are always in style and I have a number of useful tips for you to get a brighter and healthy smile and keep it all year along.
Based on what you drink, eat and how you take care of your teeth, there are a number of things that can make your smile fade and dull. But the great news is that it all can be fixed by the in-office whitening that we provide at our dental office in your neighborhood. As you know there are many options available for teeth whitening but for a longer and brighter smile your best choice is by going to your Ashburn dentist for a professional whitening. We make customized trays fit to you which means no solution will get to your gums and cause damage. Further the solution that we will provide you is stronger than what you find from drugstores. Furthermore Dr. Sidhu will help you get your ideal shade of white without over-bleaching.
And here are more tips on keeping your smile in brighter and brighter condition after you have completed the professional whitening at Loudoun Family Dental, your dentist in the Ashburn, Brambleton and Broadlands area.
Healthy Diet Is the Key
Sugar is the very bad for your teeth as it increases your risk of tooth decay. Not only this but this decay can discolors your teeth and make them appear dull and dingy. To keep your smile white, eat less of the sticky, sweet foods and more of the fruits and vegetables. It’s very important to know which foods contribute to staining and avoid those as much as you can. Dark fruits such as Berries, coffee, tea and wine all cause your smile to fade, so eat them in moderation. If you have to enjoy a soda or coffee, try drinking it with a straw as it helps keep the staining agents away from the surfaces of your teeth.
Tobacco Is a Big No
Not only tobacco causes health problems, it is major cause of yellowing of teeth. Tobacco also causes serious oral health problems such as gum disease and oral cancer. Whether it’s chewed or smoked, tobacco is just not good for any part of your body. So the best you can do for your smile, and your overall health, is to completely avoid it.
Floss Is as Important as Brush
One should brush twice a day and floss at least once, and if you’re striving to keep your smile white, it’s very important that you continue to do so. Brushing and flossing helps remove plaque which can actually cause stains to linger around and get stuck on the teeth. This directly makes an impact on how to keep the shiny white smile.
