Dear Orlando Dentist...how do I maintain the whiteness of my teeth?

Practicing and keeping a daily oral hygiene and maintaining a proper healthy diet are the main keys in keeping not only whiter teeth but an overall healthy mouth and body. Here are a few things you can do to maintain a bright healthy smile:

  • Avoiding food/drinks that can heavily stain teeth like berries, curries and sauces. Drinks like coffee, colas, wine, balsamic vinegar etc. Try using a straw to minimize contact to teeth and flush with water to prevent from staining.

  • By practicing good oral hygiene which includes brushing after each meal and using gentle strokes and soft bristles with circular motion including the tongue and gums as well.

  • Using whitening toothpaste that contain silica which fights discoloration and floss that is coated with a whitening  baking soda formula that softly dissolves the stain attracting proteins that cling to teeth or dental picks that have micro scrubbing materials and that easily reach back teeth.
  • Gargling with mouthwash that contains hydrogen peroxide that not only whiten teeth but kills bad breath- causing germs and strengthens enamel.

  • Whitening strips are thin strips that conform to the shape of your teeth. They are coated with a tooth whitening gel containing peroxide.  Can be used on your teeth for one hour once a day to help remove stain build-up on and below the tooth’s surface. 

Despite all this, it may not be enough, so it's time to bring in the professionals. If you live in the Orlando area, you can visit one of our locations, and get a professional dental assessment. We will let you know what we can do for you, and how we can get there together.
