4 Ways to Keep Your Teeth Flawless

September 28, 2016

Did you know teeth naturally yellow as you grow older? As if the aching joints and impending gray hairs weren’t enough, now we have to worry about a yellow smile!

Not to worry though, Provident Dentistry is here to give you some tips and tricks on keeping those pearly whites white.

1.     Do you drink coffee?

Rhetorical questions of course, in order to #adult we need caffeine! #amiright? So, when you’re enjoying beverages that may stain your teeth (coffee, red wine, tea, etc) consider using a straw to prevent those oh-so-yummy liquids from touching your teeth.

2.     Handy dandy toothbrush!

Captain America has a shield, Yoda has a lightsaber, and you have a toothbrush! Combat staining by brushing after meals or drinking stain-causing liquids.

3.     Do what your dentist – and mom – says!

“Have you been flossing?” your dentists asks you as she looks down at you with four different tools in your mouth. You nod yes hoping she can’t tell that you haven’t touched the complimentary floss since your last appointment six months ago.

Good dental hygiene, like your dentist and mom have been advocating for since you could talk, is a great way to prevent tooth discoloration.

·         Brush at least twice daily

·         Floss at least once daily

·         Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash

·         Use a whitening toothpaste as directed

4.      Add easy and effective touch-up treatments!
