7 Effective Ways to Keep Your Teeth Always White


The snow-white smile tends to be one of the most expressive symbols of beauty and success. According to psychologists, healthy white teeth make a person's behavior more free and independent. Moreover, it helps people look up to 10 years younger. In this article, we gathered seven effective ways to keep your teeth always white.

1. Chemical teeth whitening

Chemical whitening tends to be the most aggressive method of professional teeth whitening because of the use of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. Thor concentration is between 10 and 22 percent that bleaches the teeth color by about 5-7 tones. You should understand that aggressive teeth whitening affects the condition of the enamel. Moreover, dental crowns, implants, and fillings don’t change color. That’s why it is better to replace them before bleaching.

2. Laser whitening 

During the laser teeth whitening procedure, a dentist applies a composition based on hydrogen peroxide to your teeth. This solution is activated by a carbon dioxide laser beam, which whitens the tooth enamel for several tones in minutes. This method provides the fastest aesthetic result. In addition, the laser itself has a bactericidal property, due to which this procedure also has a prophylactic effect on the teeth, protecting them from tooth decay.

3. Ultrasound cleaning

Teeth cleaning with ultrasound ensures complete cleansing of the tooth surface. It helps remove tartar and restore the natural shade of your tooth enamel. Many dentists agree that the use of an ultrasound device to clean your teeth can prevent the development of many oral issues.

4. Professional teeth cleaning

A professional dental cleaning can remove most of the external staining of teeth caused by food or tobacco. It can also cope with dental plaque and tartar. This procedure also prevents the development of tooth decay and periodontal inflammation that can be caused by the mechanical removal of dental plaque.

5. Home teeth whitening kits

You can easily whiten your teeth at home with the help of whitening trays that are made according to the impressions of your teeth by a dentist. The trays are filled with a whitening agent. You should put them on the teeth for several hours (some kits could be used overnight). The duration of this whitening procedure takes from one to several weeks. Such teeth whitening kits help to whiten the teeth of smokers, remove fluorosis stains, and bleaches other types of stains that may affect your pearly whites.

6. Crunchy vegetables and fruits

If you want to have a bright smile without the use of chemicals, you can eat solid fruits and vegetables that "mechanically" clean your teeth. Green beans, cauliflower, carrots, and celery can easily cope with the dental plaque and mild stains on the teeth surface.

Moreover, while chewing food, the production of saliva increases. As a result, it watches away food particles that can stick between your teeth, neutralizes acids, and protects tooth enamel. Oranges and strawberries also polish tooth enamel well. In order to keep your teeth white, you should limit the consumption of tobacco, soy sauce, red wine, coffee, and tea.

7. Proper oral hygiene

After a substantial meal during the day when brush and toothpaste are not available, it is recommended to use floss to remove the food particles that can stick between your teeth. You should also know that certain types of floss are covered with special components that prevent the formation of tartar.

It is also recommended to thoroughly rinse your mouth with mouthwash. It easily penetrates into the hard-to-reach areas of the mouth and washes away some of the microbes and plaque. Moreover, certain ingredients in the mouthwash help to improve oral health and reduce plaque formation.
