Some people’s teeth are whiter than others, but I think it’s safe to say that most of us Huntington residents want our teeth to be pearly white! If you are one of those people, then Matlach Dental can help you achieve that dazzling smile you deserve. Today we want to share some tips on teeth whitening and what we can do for you!
Don’t Forget to Brush
The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many people still fail to recognize this practice. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent cavities. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume (drinks, food, etc.) but when we brush our teeth, it minimizes the damage.
After brushing your teeth, another tip is to use a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prohibits it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.
Sometimes the discoloration is too severe to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we at Matlach Dental offer other effective care to improve your smile. We provide in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth bleaching kits. Each of these methods provides an effective solution to teeth whitening. The care team at Matlach Dental will work with you to find the best solution to enhance your smile.
