Getting a brighter smile is something we all try to do every single day, but did you know that you don’t always have to spend money on professional teeth whitening services and over-the-counter whitening trays to accomplish whiter teeth? There are several at-home methods that work for teeth whitening naturally, but one of the best ways is to simply eat foods that will help make your teeth whiter.
Here are 10 foods that naturally whiten your teeth.
Throughout the day, your mouth collects and holds on to acid that leads to tooth decay if not washed our brushed out. Eating an orange will help keep the acid neutral and protect your mouth from decay while tasting delicious.
2. Seeds and Nuts
Seeds and nuts exfoliate your teeth and help keep away stains and buildup. They act as a way to brush your teeth without having to actually brush your teeth.
Malic acid is a key component in strawberries that helps to diminish the appearance of stains on your teeth, even though they might not look like the best option to eat for tooth whitening due to the red color.
4. Celery And Carrots
Celery and carrots both have a high amount of water, so they are helpful in keeping your mouth fresh and clean as they wash out buildup on your teeth.
Ever look at a head of this veggie and notice how rough it looks and how it would be a great scrubber if you were trying to get foods off of a plate? Well, eating broccoli will do the same thing to your teeth and help keep foods off and your mouth clean. It is essentially brushing your teeth without having to go to the sink or use toothpaste!
Every time you eat an apple, you are making your gums stronger with each bite you take. The high levels of water help to clean out your mouth and help you to produce more saliva.
7. Baking Soda
If you are looking for a way to reduce the number of stains or plaque buildup on your teeth, try brushing with baking soda as it works to bleach your teeth without being too harsh.
Cheese is a great snack choice because it is full of calcium that helps keep your teeth and gums strong. There is a milk protein that is called casein that helps to keep the number of minerals that are lost due to tooth enamel to a minimum.
Due to the not-so-pleasant smell you might have in your mouth after eating one, you might need to brush anyways, but eating an onion keeps plaque from building up on your teeth and gums. The onion trick only works if you are consuming an onion that has not been cooked yet.
10. Milk And Dairy
Yogurt and milk are great options to help keep your teeth white because they have lactic acid and mineral calcium that helps keep the enamel of your teeth healthy and strong.
Taking advantage of all of the above natural teeth whitening methods is an important step towards naturally whiter teeth. To schedule a teeth whitening consultation at our office, contact us today!
Are you unhappy with the look of your smile? If so, 3V Dental is your local cosmetic dentist with that caring touch! Cosmetic dentistry can re-invigorate your smile, improving your appearance and greatly increasing your self-confidence. One highly effective and popular approach to cosmetic dentistry is the smile makeover.
What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to address a variety of issues with your smile. Each makeover is individualized to meet your specific needs. You and your dentist will discuss in detail your goals for your smile and the best way to accomplish them. Based on this consultation, your dentist will recommend a combination of procedures that will give you the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
Some of the most popular procedures included in a smile makeover include:
Because you plan your smile makeover ahead of time, you can often combine two or more procedures into a single appointment, saving you time and money.
What Cosmetic Dental Procedures are Right for Me?
You’ll choose your cosmetic procedures based on your goals for your smile and the recommendations of your dentist.
1. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments because it can make a dramatic difference to your smile after a single, one-hour treatment. A whitening agent is applied directly to your teeth in your dentist’s office. Some whitening procedures, like Zoom! Teeth Whitening, require a special light to activate the whitener.
2. Dental bonding uses tooth-colored resins to change the shape of your teeth. Bonding is useful for teeth that are cracked, chipped, or asymmetrical. The dentist applies the resin, cures it with a special light, then sculpts it into the appropriate shape.
3. Tooth colored fillings are also made of tooth-colored resins, but can also be made of porcelain. They can replace your metal amalgam fillings for a more natural look.
4. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They are made up of an artificial tooth root, which is set directly into the jawbone, and a prosthetic crown. Unlike dentures, implants allow you to eat, talk, and chew without worrying about your tooth or teeth moving or shifting in your mouth.
Find exactly the right combination of procedures for your smile makeover, and you’ll finally have that perfect smile.
