Everyone wants a beautiful smile! And part of having a beautiful smile means having white teeth. Dull, dingy, yellowish teeth can make you self-conscious and afraid to smile, which can affect how others see you and how you feel about yourself. Read on for some simple ways to keep your teeth their whitest.
Take care of your teeth!
You hear it all the time, from your spouse, your dentist, maybe even your mother – you should always take care of your teeth! After all, healthy teeth are beautiful teeth! Brush twice a day (or at least swish your mouth out with some water after eating, if brushing isn’t possible), floss at least once a day (and make sure you do a thorough job), and see your dentist twice a year or when there is a problem.
Stay away from certain foods and indulge in others
Certain foods and drinks can stain teeth, such as coffee, some sports drinks, and tea. You should also avoid citrus fruit, dark berries such as blueberries, and foods that contain tomato sauce, soy sauce, or balsamic vinegar. And of course, sugar is not only bad for teeth in general, but it can contribute to acid in the mouth, which can lead to tooth stains.
Limiting your favorite foods and beverages so that you can have white teeth isn’t much fun, but at least there are some delicious foods that can help to keep your teeth white. Enjoy celery, strawberries, spinach, broccoli, apples, and cheese, which are natural teeth whiteners!
