A Whiter, Brighter Smile WITHOUT Going to the Dentist

Stained, yellow teeth are embarrassing and can take away from your overall look.  If looking your best is important to you, then your smile must be up to par. This means that you focus daily on keeping your smile white and bright.  If you can’t afford to have your teeth whitened or simply hate visiting the dentist, you can still get the white teeth that will speak volumes when you smile. Use the tips listed below on a daily basis to help obtain beautiful white teeth that you don’t mind showing off.

·         Stay away from coke, tea, and coffee.  Believe it or not, one of the number one contributors of yellow teeth is beverages. Drinking an excessive amount of coke, tea, and coffee can lead to yellow, unattractive teeth.  If you can’t do without your tasty beverages, then consider brushing your teeth immediately after you consume beverages that have the yellowing effect.  This will not only give you a brighter smile, it will be good for oral hygiene as well. Coffee is especially harmful for your teeth.  Have your morning coffee before you brush your teeth to ensure a white, bright smile throughout the day.

·         Choose the right tooth paste.  What brand of tooth paste do you use?  Studies have shown that those who use a brand of tooth paste with a whitening agent included, have brighter smiles.  There are many inexpensive brands that promise to remove up to 80% of the surface stains that are affecting your smile.  Be sure that your tooth paste is helping you achieve the white teeth that you desire.  Don’t purchase the tooth paste unless it promises to give you a whiter smile.   How does your tooth paste measure up in giving you the white smile that you desire?

·         Chewing gum.  During times when you can’t brush your teeth after eating or drinking, chewing gum is a great alternative.  Choose a gum that encourages whiter teeth.  Be sure that it is sugar free so that you don’t promote cavities.  Make a habit to chew a piece of gum after each meal and you may just be surprised at how white your smile can actually be.

·         Whitening strips.  Your local drug store carries inexpensive whitening strips that are safe for your teeth and can help you get the smile that you want for very little cost.  While it may take a few weeks to see the results that you want, whitening strips have given countless people brighter, whiter smiles that are often achieved only by making a visit to the dentist.

A smile is often the first thing that people notice.   How white are your teeth?  Use the tips listed above to help you get the smile that you desire without costly visits to the dentist.  Use one or a combination of all of the tips to help achieve a smile that others will remember.   An unforgettable smile is one that does not include stained, yellow teeth.
