Contrasting Colors: Working like Magic

The world of colorsWords of Wisdom No.10 – “Conceal with Color“

Have you ever wondered if there’s a way to make your teeth look whiter instantly? For ladies, there’s actually a good way to do so. Did you know that wearing medium coral or light red lipstick can make your teeth look whiter rather than yellowish? If not, you should try wearing dark colored lipsticks as they can conceal the real color of your teeth. Lighter lipsticks on the other hand tend to bring out the yellowish or dark color of your teeth so you should try to avoid these colors if you want your teeth to look whiter – instantly.

Aside from concealing the real color of your teeth, there are actually other ways in order to make them whiter permanently. One way is to gargle with apple cider vinegar as the vinegar can remove the stains on your teeth therefore making them whiter overtime. The other way is to use baking soda just as you use toothpaste once every week. It has the same effect with apple cider vinegar. Aside from these two mentioned above, you could also buy over-the-counter bleaching agents or ask your dentist for a prescribed one (to acquire the best suited agent for your case).

Furthermore, since prevention is always better than cure, try avoiding colored drinks and foods. These actually stain your mouth hence you should put in mind that anything colored you put in your mouth could probably stain your teeth. Examples of colored drinks are sodas, coffee, and dark juices which most people drink throughout their day.

Words of Wisdom No.6 – Brush Your Teeth with Baking Soda Once a Week

Brushing your teeth with toothpaste daily may not be enough especially if you’re suffering on tooth discoloration. Your dentist may recommend bleaching agents or you can also buy over-the-counter medications. However for those who don’t have enough time or resources to buy expensive creams, you could actually use something that can easily be found in your kitchen. Brushing your teeth with baking soda once a week can help improve the color of your teeth. You can use it the same way you use the toothpaste. Using baking soda as toothpaste will remove the stains in your teeth and make them look whiter as you use it regularly.

Using baking soda is a cheap way to achieve the same results in teeth whitening. If your gums start to feel raw, you can alternate brushing with salt every other day. Just make sure you spit it out after brushing though. If you ran out of baking soda, you can also try using apple cider vinegar which can also be found in your kitchen easily. It has the same effects with baking soda when it comes to removing stains and whitening your teeth. It’s also not so expensive compared to over-the-counter bleaching agents.

If you have teeth misalignment problems aside from tooth discoloration, then it would be best to contact the experts. Fixing these types of problems as early as possible is the most cost-effective way to achieve the desired results. Complications may arise if these problems are prolonged.

If you have problems with your smile or your overall oral health, don’t hesitate to contact King Orthodontics at Centerville or Fairborn offices.

Words of Wisdom No.5 – Gargle with Apple Cider Vinegar

Nowadays, thousands of mouthwash brands are in the market. People who needed to gargle with anti-bacterial mouthwash can just buy over-the-counter or buy what’s prescribed to them. Gargling with mouthwash helps reduce the bacteria in your mouth especially if you’re not able to brush your teeth yet. Most travelers bring mouthwash in long flights to help them keep their mouth healthy despite the limitations of their situations. Staying in a friend’s house also requires a mouthwash to keep your breath fresh and your mouth healthy.

However, there’s actually a good substitute for commercial mouthwashes sold in the market. This replacement can be found in anyone else’s kitchen hence if you don’t have a mouthwash or if you forgot it, then you still have an alternative in order to make sure your teeth are protected. All you need to do is to gargle with apple cider vinegar in order to kill bacteria. Aside from reducing the bacteria in your mouth, you’re also doing your teeth a favor as vinegar removes stains. Hence, it can actually make your teeth whiter if you gargle with apple cider vinegar regularly.

Eating dark colored foods and drinking coffee or colas can stain your teeth. If you’re not in the position to be able to brush immediately or gargle with mouthwash, then using apple cider vinegar as your best option. If you’re experiencing other bite problems, then it’s time to contact the professionals in your area. King Orthodontics can help diagnose your case and lay down the appropriate treatment plan.
