Some tooth whitening techniques can be messy, expensive, and ineffective. You do not have to use expensive methods if you do not wish to: there are other solutions. These tips will show you a few ways to get your teeth whiter with out spending a lot of your hard-earned money. Here is what Beverly Hills Dentist Dr. Javdan from Beverly Hills Family Dental Group has to say.
If you smoke, now is the time to kick the habit. The expense of teeth whitening products is wasted if you continue to smoke and re-stain your teeth. All the benefits of this product will not matter when you are smoking.
Be sure to strictly follow the instructions provided with all teeth whitening kits. If you allow the products to remain on your teeth for an extended period of time, you could suffer from gum inflammation or teeth sensitivity. After you have whitened your teeth, do not consume any drinks that can erode enamel like sports drinks or soda pop, they contain acids.
Choose the right toothbrush. Talk to your dentist, so that they can tell you the toothbrush to use.
Eat lots of crunchy foods. Teeth can become more white from eating celery, apples and carrots. These foods will clean your teeth as you chew them, due to their abrasiveness. When eating these, eat them whole, at their crunchiest. Don’t cut them up or alter them.
It is possible for teeth to become sensitive to whitening products. Any sensitivity, gum irritation or bleeding gums should be treated by your dentist immediately. If this is something that is going on, make sure that you go to your dentist before you keep going. Your dentist can recommend an effective product that won’t damage your teeth or gums.
Fruits and veggies that have a lot of fiber will give your teeth a natural scrubbing. Cucumbers, apples, broccoli and carrots are popular choices for additional fiber intake. By eating raw veggies and giving them a good chewing, you will also be cleaning your teeth. Chew the food around in your mouth and cover a lot of area.
If you eat fruits and vegetables containing a crunch, they are great for teeth whitening. They have abrasive properties that help scrub away stains that have formed on your teeth. Try eating more apples, raw carrots, and celery.
Before using a whitening product, start by cleaning your teeth thoroughly. Although hair dyes work better on hair that is a little dirty, whitening products aren’t as effective on dirty teeth. If your teeth are not clean when you start to whiten them there is a good chance that the results will be uneven and noticeable.
You should be sure to brush teeth even more rigorously after whitening. If you don’t, then bacteria from food could form on your teeth. As your teeth are weakened after the teeth whitening, the bacteria could cause a large amount of damage if it is left to build up on your teeth.
As previously mentioned, whitening teeth can be daunting and cost you a lot.
