First Impressions Count

Your smile and teeth are one of the first things people really see about you. If it looks dingy and yellow and unclean, people will notice and it can affect everything from the jobs you get to the people you date. If you want to get a rock star smile, it’s easy to do by taking care of your teeth and using the right products to ensure that you look your best. So what is the best way to take care of your teeth and get a terrific white smile?

  • Regular brushing – brushing your teeth 2-3 times a day is very important for keeping teeth healthy and preventing plaque buildup and other unattractive problems that can occur when you don’t brush. You don’t need to over brush, but following the 2-3 times a day rule is more than likely going to be enough. The only reason to brush more often is if you have had something to drink that typically stains such as coffee, wine, cola, or grape juice. Brushing right after drinking those drinks can prevent stains from settling on the teeth
  • Use a good, safe whitening toothpaste – There are a ton of whitening toothpastes out there to choose from. Some are harsher than others, and contain SLS; a widely debated ingredient that many are contributing to all kinds of potential problems such as canker sores and other irritations. If you want to avoid the chemicals look for toothpaste without SLS for a much healthier, but still effective way to get your teeth whitened.
  • Use a good whitening mouthwash – mouthwash can help get rid of the bacteria and stains that brushing does not. It seems to work best when you brush first and then use the mouthwash, but due to the ingredients in some of them, you may want to limit usage to no more than once a day or every other day. If you notice sores in your mouth, the mouthwash or toothpaste may be the culprit, so keep an eye on the ingredients they contain.
  • Use a straw to drink most drinks – drinking with a straw minimizes the contact your teeth have with drinks that can stain them. It is a good practice to get into if possible, for all of your drinks and will help to keep your smile bright and great looking.
  • Use White strips– whitening strips used to be looked down on by Dentists, but they have become so accepted that in many offices, patients are given white strip kits to take hone and use when they want to whiten their teeth. There are many over the counter brands of white strips for you to try. Make sure to read the directions and follow them to the letter to ensure the best success.
