How to Keep Your Teeth Bright

Nice, white teeth can be a huge confidence booster, although it is sometimes difficult to keep teeth bright. At Flossophy Dental, we offer professional teeth whitening. In addition to setting up an appointment with us, check out some lifestyle tips to keep your smile bright!

First, you want to avoid foods and drinks that are dark in color such as wine, coffee, and cranberries. If you cannot pass over these foods because they are a favorite, it is a good idea to rinse your mouth after you eat them. It is also helpful to drink dark drinks through a straw to minimize the contact the liquid has with your teeth.

Brushing and flossing three times per day is great for keeping away sticky plaque that can hold in stains. Try to brush thirty minutes after each meal (any sooner can actually harm enamel). It may be tempting to skip flossing, but it is actually very important for keeping away staining!

You will also want to stay away from the home-whitening recipes you find. For instance, baking soda is a popular method for whitening, but it is very abrasive. It can wear down your enamel causing darkened teeth and cavities!

To find out more about the professional whitening options we have here in our Edmonton, AB office, do not hesitate to contact us. To set up an appointment with Flossophy Dental, call us at (780) 306-9333 or visit our website, www.flossophydental.ca
