Worried that your teeth aren’t looking their best? There are a few tips and tricks to avoiding stained teeth. At Elite Dental Arts Dr. Nick Mobilia wants you to have a smile you can be proud of. That’s why we’ve put together some ways to keep your teeth bright and white!
The biggest causes of stained teeth are from the beverages we consume. Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are the biggest culprits. Smoking is also known to stain teeth. If you’re an avid hot beverage drinker, there are a few suggestions. First, try drinking through a straw. This minimizes the amount of contact your teeth have with your drinks. A straw gives you your caffeine boost while bypassing your pearly whites.
Another tip is to drink these beverages in moderation. Try drinking more water, or at least drink water in between your next cup of joe. Water washes away sugar, bacteria, and beverage residue from your teeth. The ideal solution is to take a sip of your beverage and then a drink of water. It may seem silly but it works.
There’s never a bad time to brush your teeth. This includes after finishing up a relaxing cup of tea. The longer you let the residue remain on your teeth, the more it will stain. Brushing freshens your breath and your smile! Don’t forget to floss too!
