Most people want a smile that’s at least a little bit whiter and brighter. When you’re happy with your teeth, you live life with less self-consciousness and smile with more confidence. Here are five ways to achieve a sparkling smile.

  • Quit all tobacco (or don’t start)

Chewing tobacco and smoking cigarettes not only damage your overall health, they also change the color of your teeth. The nicotine and tar soak into your teeth’s enamel, staining them. If you smoke or use other tobacco products and want a brighter smile, stopping is one of the best things you can do. And your improved health will give you something to smile about!

  • Avoid certain foods & drinks

There are lots of foods that can add stains to your teeth. These include dark berries, wine, coffee, and tea. Very acidic foods like citrus fruits can erode your enamel, as well. This causes the dentin – which naturally has a yellowish color – to shine through. Cut down on your consumption of foods that stain and use a straw to drink tooth-staining beverages.

  • Maintain good oral hygiene

This one should come as no surprise. Healthy teeth are better-looking teeth. Plaque buildup gives teeth a yellow appearance in addition to causing tooth decay. Brush at least twice a day and floss once a day to prevent that buildup.

  • Visit the dentist twice a year

At Dental Wellness Phoenixville, we recommend that you visit Dr. David and the team at least twice a year for a routine cleaning and an exam. We can remove hardened plaque, assess your dental health, and treat any problems before they become serious.

  • Get your teeth professionally whitened

If you want a more significant change in your teeth color, consider having us professionally whiten your smile. We use Zoom ® teeth whitening, so your teeth can get up to eight shades lighter in just 45 minutes. Professional teeth whitening is much safer and more effective than kits you buy at the store. Some DIY methods can actually erode the enamel of your teeth and make them look more yellow. If you are interested in professional whitening or need to make an appointment for a cleaning, don’t hesitate to contact us with a call or email!
