It can seem difficult to keep your teeth nice and white; however, with a few tips and tricks, it’s actually pretty easy. At Bayberry Dental Care in Tinley Park, IL, we offer professional teeth whitening to give you a head start. In addition, take some of our tips for avoiding staining.
Dark foods and drinks like blueberries, coffee, wine, and soy sauce are common stain culprits. Avoid these dark foods and drinks as much as possible to keep a white smile. We do know that it is not always possible to avoid a consuming something dark, though. So after you eat a dark food or drink something like coffee, be sure to rinse your mouth out with water afterward. It is safe to brush your teeth thirty minutes after eating or drinking. You can also try sipping dark drinks through a straw to avoid contact.
Along with avoiding stain-causers, you will want to keep good oral hygiene. Plaque can cause yellowing, darkening of teeth, and it can trap in stain-causers close to your enamel. To remove plaque, brush two or three times per day and floss once per day.
