Teeth Whitening Tips

It is true that we want to have the white smile which we can be proud of in showing the world. The  dazzling smile of the shiny white teeth communicates cleanliness, health, and the well-being. On the other hand teeth that are stained and any color other than white are not as pleasant to look at. If your teeth are not as white as you would like them to be then there are teeth whitening tips that you can turn to to improve the color of your smile.


One of the most basic teeth whitening tips is to do your part to prevent stains from showing up on your teeth. There are many foods and beverages that are staining culprits. Sometimes we cannot avoid consuming these foods but you can limit your intake of them for the good of your teeth.  We have used teeth whitening kits for GogoSmile teeth whitening & they are awesome!


Coffee, tea and red wine have substances in them that can lead to the development of stains on the teeth. Fruit juices and fruits such as blueberries can also lead to stains as can spices such as curry. If you do eat these foods and drink these beverages then eating lettuce with a meal and then rinsing after each meal can help to prevent the foods from clinging to the surface of your teeth. Always make sure that you give your teeth a thorough brushing before you go to bed and don’t forget to floss!


If you cannot afford to visit the dentist for a professional teeth whitening then look to home methods to give you a brighter smile. Many commercial brand toothpastes have properties that fight stains. Look for whitening toothpastes to help do the trick. Be aware though that many of these toothpastes are abrasive. If you have sensitive teeth and gums then this might do more harm than good. If you decide to try whitening toothpastes then alternate between this type of paste and a regular paste to reduce the abrasive nature of the product.


Stains can start small on the teeth and then can build over time. If you notice a small stain on a tooth then add some water to baking soda and then after dipping your toothbrush in the mixture give the tooth a good brushing. Do not be rough though. This is not something you should do often though as it can wear down the enamel on the teeth if it is done too regularly.
