Teeth Bleaching, Lipstick, and More: 5 Ways to Get a Brighter Smile

dca-blog_article-33_whiter-brighter-smile_1200x630

Is your smile as white as it should be? Many people dream of having a whiter smile, and it’s not an impossible goal. You and your dentist can work together on making your smile healthy and bright. Here are five great tips to help you get started.

1. Limit Stain-Causing Beverages
If your drink can stain a white shirt, it can do the same to your teeth. Offenders include tea, coffee, grape juice, red wine, and cola. Limit the amount of stain-causing beverages you consume. If you just can’t say no, rinse with plain water after you finish drinking.

2. Consider Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is the quickest fix to remove stains and whiten natural teeth. Your dentist brushes a peroxide gel over your teeth and then activates it with a special light or laser. You’ll see instant results that can last for up to a year with good dental care.

3. What about a Veneer Makeover?
When teeth bleaching isn’t enough, porcelain veneers can be just the answer you’re seeking. Custom designed to fit your teeth, they can hide a multitude of minor problems including yellow stains, uneven or misshapen areas, and small chips. The process requires two dental visits, but your veneers will last for years.

4. Makeup Tricks for Teeth Whitening
Did you know that your lipstick can be a teeth whitening tool? If you feel like your teeth look yellow, choosing lip colors with blue or pink undertones can make your teeth look whiter. Shades to use for this trick include wine, berry, plum, and cherry red.

5. Good Hygiene is a Tooth Whitening Hero
A vital part of any tooth whitening plan is excellent hygiene. Brush your teeth twice daily and after every meal when possible. Floss every day, and use an antibacterial mouth rinse to fight plaque. And don’t forget to replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or when it becomes frayed.
