We all want to smile and flash nice bright, white teeth, but for one reason or another, not everyone is able to have their teeth professionally whitened. The team at Aesthetic & Implant Center of Atlanta offers these three tips to keep your smile bright:
Brush and Floss Daily
We know it sounds basic, but it is actually the easiest way of keeping your teeth bright. Not brushing or flossing properly can leave plaque behind on your tooth, creating a yellowish hue across your enamel. A good oral hygiene routine will keep the build-up away and keep enamel brighter. A Whitening toothpaste can help limit new stains from developing.
Avoid Teeth Staining Habits
Our daily habits can play a role in the discoloration of our teeth as well. Drinking a lot of coffee or red wine can slowly darken the color over time. We also know smoking can have a negative impact on your smile. Staining from tobacco makes it harder to keep teeth bright even with regular brushing. If at all possible, try to minimize any habits which lead to tooth discoloration.
Regular Dental Cleanings
Our dental hygienists are here to help! With routine professional cleanings, we can use specialized instruments to remove stubborn buildup from your teeth. A gentle polishing will quickly lift away surface stains, leaving you with smoother, brighter teeth.
We understand not every situation is the same. Some discoloration can be due to health issues or certain medications. Aesthetic & Implant Center of Atlanta has professional teeth whitening and cosmetic options to help you smile with confidence. Contact us today to reserve an exam.
