Word of Wisdom No. 1: “Go On a White-Teeth Diet”
Have you ever wondered why your teeth keep getting darker or yellowish despite all your efforts of treating it? You may have tried some bleaching toothpaste or creams but they seem not to work with your problems at all. If you’re always drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, or sipping dark colored drinks, then don’t expect for your medications to work immediately or to work at all. Colored drinks and even colored foods can actually make your teeth yellowish or dark. It may seem impossible for you to stop drinking or eating them but there are ways in order to minimize their effects.
The best way to whiten your teeth of course is to stop or reduce your consumption of dark colored drinks or foods. However, if there are times when you really need to consume them, then you can do so but make sure you brush your teeth right after consuming them. If it’s possible for you to avoid colas, gravies, and dark juices, then it’s better to do so. The point is that every time you put something in your mouth which is colored, it’s probably going to stain your teeth. Brushing immediately after consuming colored drinks or foods can also be followed by bleaching the teeth. Bleaching agents can be found over-the-counter or they can also be prescribed by your dentist.
Don’t let ignorance affect how your teeth look. Always put in mind that knowing these facts can help you improve your overall oral health and can also help you save a lot of money.
