What toothpaste do you use?

The simplest yet most obvious place to start is with your toothpaste. Teeth whitening toothpastes provide just enough abrasion to eliminate surface stains from your teeth. This is generally the yellowish colour that is on the teeth. To remove more stubborn stains, it is likely you’ll need to visit a dentist.

Whitening toothpastes have limitations so it is important not to try scrubbing the enamel on your teeth tooth roughly. This will likely only cause damage which in cases can be an irreversible problem. Make sure you have a soft bristled tooth brush to counter the abrasive toothpaste, this way minimal damage can occur. Make sure you floss too, because particles stuck in-between teeth don’t only cause decay but can stain your teeth as well.

Do you go to regular check-ups?

By attending regular check-ups we can consistently clear away plaque and tartar. Tartar is a combination of bacteria and plaque which hardens over time if not removed with general brushing and flossing. During your regular check-up we will likely perform the following:

  • Assessment of the quality of your teeth
  • Check for cavities
  • Perform an X-ray for a more in-depth view
  • Perform a scale, clean and polish

It is during your scale, clean and polish where we will carefully remove any tartar build-up from the surface of your teeth. Not only does this stop the bacteria from further damaging your teeth but it can brighten your smile and leave your mouth feeling clean and refreshed.

How many litres of water do you drink a day?

Well really it isn’t necessarily about how many litres of water you drink although that is important for your overall health. It is really about when you are drinking it. Drinking water after eating snacks and meals as well as after consuming staining beverages can help your smile stay whiter for longer.

This is because the water helps wash away any leftover particles that are floating about your mouth and also can stop bacteria from your meals and drinks from settling on the surface of your smile. This doesn’t only benefit the whitening process but it can also give you a better chance at delaying decay.

What do you chew on throughout the day?

Bit into an apple lately? That crunchy texture should be music to your ears! Crunchy apples have an abrasive nature that can gently remove surface stains and help your teeth feel fresh. Strawberries with their high acid content help to break down bacteria, whereas pineapple naturally contains a substance called bromelain. This is a natural anti-inflammatory and cleanser that is known to be an effective stain remover.

Believe it or not, many foods have natural whiteners in them. Particularly certain fruits and vegetables which have the ability to assist in keeping your teeth white. Chewing sugar-free gum can help too. Have a piece after coffee to keep your smile white and refresh your breath at the same time.
