Tips to keep your whitest smile

Whiter Teeth do make you look younger.

Therefore, here are a few simple tips you can use to whiten your smile and keep you younger looking, for longer.

Choose darker lipstick colours with blue undertones because blue helps make your teeth appear whiter.

Avoid coral and orange lipsticks, these can make your teeth, appear yellowish.

Blue tones in Shirts and Tops also helps to make your teeth look whiter, whereas wearing white clothing, can make your smile appear dull.

If you have any yellowish tones in your teeth Gold seems to exaggerate the yellowing. Therefore, try to avoid wearing gold near your face. Instead wearing white stones and silver jewellery can make your teeth appear whiter.

Try a stain-avoiding eating and drinking plan:
White foods + White drinks = Whitest Smile for longer

 

  • Dark foods such as Red meats, Beetroot, Carrots, Blueberries and the like can stain your teeth
  • Drinks such as coffee, tea, cola, artificially coloured drinks, red wine, cranberry juice, grape juice can stain your teeth. Instead drink… water, grapefruit juice, ginger ale, chamomile tea.
  • Also watch out for soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, tomato sauce. Instead try white wine vinegar, olive oil.
  • If you do have staining foods or drinks, brush your teeth as soon as possible
  • Very Hot drinks can rapidly change the temperature of your teeth. This may cause the microscopic pores in your teeth to expand, allowing stains to more quickly penetrate your teeth. Try drinking hot drinks through a straw. In countries where cosmetically whitened teeth are becoming the norm, some cafes and restaurants provide heat resistant straws with coffees
  • Acidic foods such as Sugar, citrus etc can also open up the pores of the tooth enamel, allowing stains to more easily move into your teeth.
  • Smoking is one of the biggest offenders in ruining white smiles
  • Watch out for some tongue piercing, it can lead to Metallic Staining making your teeth appear grey. Apart from teeth looking less than sexy, this type of staining is sometimes almost impossible to remove
  • Brushing your teeth twice a day for at least two-minutes, and floss once a day at least.
  • Bleaching hair can make your smile appear dull.
  • Use an electric toothbrush; it can do a better job.

 

Once you have your whitest smile, you want to keep it that way, so schedule a regular dental check-up and cleaning every 6 months.

In addition, to keep your teeth their whitest we recommend at least 1 x 12-20-minute “Refresh” teeth whitening cycle EVERY 3-MONTHS
