It is common for people to want shiny, white teeth that they can show off. However, it isn’t easy to have white teeth. You have to be aware of what you are consuming and how you are cleaning your teeth. Becoming careless about your health can cause you to have unsightly yellow and brown teeth. Luckily, there are few simple tips you can practice on a daily basis to prevent tooth discoloration.
Brush and Rinse
One of the most effective ways to prevent tooth discoloration is to brush your teeth and then rinse with water after every meal. This is especially important if you are consuming foods or beverages that stain teeth, such as coffee, soda, and candy. It might not be easy, but try to get to a bathroom and brush your teeth after eating. This will prevent plaque from building up and staining your teeth.
Use A Straw
If you want to have white teeth, you need to watch how you are drinking your beverages especially coffee and tea. Both drinks contain caffeine, which naturally stain the enamel, so you want to use a straw while drinking. Using a straw prevent direct contact with tooth-staining beverages. It might seem weird drinking wine and hot coffee with a strong, but you will be happy when your teeth are not yellowing.
When brushing your teeth, you want to use a brush that is effective at removing plaque, thus preventing your teeth from dulling in color. You should invest in an electric toothbrush, which prevents you from brushing aggressively. It is important that you brush gently so that you do not damage your gums or the bristles. An electric toothbrush moves gently and gets rid of plaque in spots a manual toothbrush misses.
