Summer is here, and it’s a great time for ensuring you can smile confidently. Follow these simple steps for gaining brighter, cleaner teeth.
Regularly brushing your teeth helps remove excess food particles that can otherwise stain your teeth more easily. When brushing your teeth, use a fluoride toothpaste that helps to harden and protect tooth enamel, and brush for at least two minutes, twice daily. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush that won’t damage your teeth or gums.
Floss Every Day
Dentists can always tell who flosses their teeth regularly because their gums are healthier and stronger. Toothbrushing alone cannot remove plaque and food trapped between teeth.
Book Regular Dental Cleanings
Most people benefit from twice-yearly dental cleanings, and it’s a great idea to book a hygiene appointment when you schedule your regular checkup. A dental cleaning removes plaque and tartar that can otherwise stain and discolour teeth. Your hygienist can lightly polish your teeth, giving them an added sparkle. It’s a treatment that helps to freshen breath too.
Consider Professional Teeth Whitening
Severely discoloured or stained teeth will often benefit from a professional tooth whitening treatment. Whitening your teeth professionally ensures treatment is safe and effective, providing you with the very best results. Ask us for more information about our custom take-home whitening kits.
