5 Tips for Whiter Teeth

5 Tips for Whiter Teeth

Secrets for a White and Bright Smile from a Beverly Hills Dentist


1. Steer Clear of these Teeth Stainers


Red wine, coffee, dark teas, sodas, and smoking are all culprits for staining your teeth. If you want whiter teeth, opt for white wines, green teas, and a healthy smoke-free lifestyle. If you can't resist, brush immediately after drinking these teeth stainers.


2. Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening


In our Beverly Hills practice, we offer our patients Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening. It is the fastest way to a white, bright smile. Zoom Whitening is pain-free, affordable, and used by over 10 million people to keep their smile white. Results can be immediate with teeth up to 8 shades whiter in as little as 45 minutes.


3. Replace Your Toothbrush


Replace your conventional toothbrush or change your electric toothbrush head every 2-3 months. Replacing your toothbrush is a vital step in having whiter teeth. If you are not replacing it often, bacteria accumulates on the toothbrush and brushing your teeth continues to spread the bacteria. When was the last time you replaced your toothbrush?


4.  Brush Your Teeth When you Get Out of Bed and Before You Go to Bed


For a healthy and white smile, it is best to brush right after you wake up in the morning to clean away any plaque that builds up while you sleep. Your mouth is drier as you sleep, which makes it an opportune time for bacteria and plaque to stick around. Also, brush right before bed to brush away any food and plaque from the day.


5. Stay Hydrated


Sipping water throughout the day keeps your mouth moist and washes away food particles, which promotes whiter teeth. If you can't seem to get to a sink after lunch to brush your teeth, the next best thing is having a few gulps of water. Staying hydrated is also a big part of a healthy lifestyle.
