Whitening your teeth can have a dramatic affect on your overall appearance. Surveys reveal that one of the first things people notice about you is your smile. Your smile makes a dramatic first impression, and you only have one opportunity to make a good first impression.
So what can you do to get whiter teeth? You can start by paying attention to what you eat and drink. Crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples, celery, carrots and cauliflower provide a natural abrasive that literally scrubs stains away as you chew. They are also packed with vitamins and minerals that are essential to your health. Eating cheese and other dairy products such as yogurt and cottage cheese can also help you to achieve whiter teeth. Cheese and other dairy products contain proteins that bind to teeth and help shield them from cavities and stains. On the other hand, sodas, red wine and some fruit juices can leave stains your teeth and cause your smile to look dingy.
If you eat a healthy diet containing lots of crunchy fruits and vegetables and cheese and dairy products and your teeth still appear dingy and yellowed, it is time to get a professional opinion from a qualified cosmetic dentist. Many cosmetic dental practices offer a variety of options for bleaching or whitening your teeth. Pure Dental Health takes it one step further by offering a “Whitening for Life” program where patients receive a free whitening tray with their initial exam, x-rays and cleaning. As long as patients stay consistent with their prescribed cleaning schedule, they are also given free whitening gel for life.
