People often want white teeth for special occasions like School balls, summer holidays or weddings but why not have a gorgeous white smile ALL the time?
The outer layer on teeth naturally discolours over time, especially with increased tea & coffee in take as the tannin (a component of tea) gradually stains the teeth. However, you don’t have to completely give up coffee and tea to have white teeth (YAY!)
That’s why it’s important to follow these three easy steps to maintain your white teeth naturally!
- Use an electric toothbrush-the speed at which the brush head rotates acts as a mini buffer and polishes surface level stains off the teeth. Plus, healthy pink gums actually make your teeth look nicer just like the right frame makes a piece of art pop! Using a toothpaste with whitening agent also aids in giving you a sparkly smile.
- Rinse your mouth out with water immediately after drinking a cup of tea or coffee-even if you’re in a café, have a sip of water and let it swirl around your mouth then swallow. Make sure you also do this when you use some mouth rinses, as even they can contribute to stained teeth.
- Limit the amount of red wine you drink or cigarettes you smoke-they act similarly to coffee and can stain your teeth over time. Don’t forget the overall health benefits of slowing down either.
