Beautiful, white teeth always add incredible charm. It’s little wonder then that people do their best to make them look flawless and eye-catching. In many cases it’s enough to change some daily habits to make the teeth brighter. Additionally, stores offer lots of products designed for whitening e.g. toothpastes, mouthwashes and brushing gadgets. Which solutions are really noteworthy?
Why do the teeth go darker?
You want your teeth to be your biggest asset but yellow stains come in your way? Lots of people struggle with the hyperpigmenation. Habitual smokers belong to this group because their teeth gradually chnage the color because of the substabces in tobacco products. Also the fans of strong coffee, tea and drinks like coca-cola are exposed to stains on the teeth. The wine buffs aren’t lucky either because wine is on the blacklist, weakening the enamel and making teeth darker.
Hot dishes and spices with intense colors are the wrongdoers too. You are also exposed to stains on the teeth if your diet abounds in monosaccharides, even if they come from fruits and vegetables. Some medications affect the tooth color. Even the genes and your age may cause the teeth to go yellow.
Toothpastes, mouth rinses, diet, aka your ally!
Do you wonder what to do to make the teeth whiter? Do you like natural home remedies the most? Cutting down on sugar in your diet is one of the best things to do. This prevents the stains and most of all keeps your teeth in perfect condition.
The tried and tested treatments for whiter teeth include using whitening toothpastes and putting your mind to the brushing routine (remember to clean the tongue as well!). Use baking soda for tooth brushing once a week: be careful not to swallow it and always rinse the mouth well. A mouthwash proves effective too. You must also make sure you choose the right toothbrush and replace it regularly. Many dentists recommend combining traditional brushes with sonic brushes (using them by turns).
As you can see, whiter teeth are within your reach. Changing daily habits has a very good effect on the appearance and health of your teeth.
