What really keeps teeth white? The information out there is varied, but really it comes down to a few key points that we can all fit into our busy day-to-day lives. Sparkling white teeth are possible to achieve with the right routine and good quality products. Find out how to keep teeth white with this easy-to-follow plan.
Regular dental check-ups
Your dentist can provide essential advice when it comes to knowing how to keep teeth healthy and white. After all, whiteness doesn’t always indicate good condition. Your dentist will not only look after the health of your teeth and gums, but they’ll also help keep your teeth white too.
A check-up is not just about spotting cavities; it’s also your opportunity to sit back and let the professionals remove plaque and give your teeth a polish. Then, it’s all about daily maintenance, so let’s take a look at some of the best ways to keep your teeth white at home.
Daily oral hygiene
Altering your dental mindset can make all the difference: think of oral hygiene as part of your beauty regime rather than a daily chore. Enamel erosion is one of the main causes of teeth losing their natural whiteness, as the underlying layer of dentine, which is yellow in colour, becomes exposed. Incorporating an easy-to-follow routine into your busy day is the best way to keep teeth white and healthy, and the results will certainly show in your smile. Here are some tips for how to keep teeth clean and white:
1. Brush twice a day with a toothpaste that protects and strengthens your tooth enamel like Regenerate Advanced Toothpaste – and the enamel mineral of your teeth will be regenerated1. That means healthier enamel, stronger teeth, protection against cavities, and preserved natural whiteness. Remember to wait at least 30 minutes after eating or drinking to brush your teeth, as this can help to minimise the risk of enamel erosion.
2. Floss once a day. Flossing helps you to get into those difficult-to-reach places and helps keep your gums healthy.
3. Use mouthwash after brushing. Rinsing for just 30 seconds after brushing will help remove any leftover residue and leave you with sweet-smelling breath: that’s a win-win-win situation.
Advanced at-home solutions
In addition to your daily oral hygiene routine, a monthly serum will take your smile to the next level. Using Regenerate Advanced Enamel Serum kit for just three minutes, three days a month protects your teeth from the effects of acid attacks and enamel erosion.
In vitro tests have shown that using the kit boosts the effectiveness of Regenerate’s Advanced Toothpaste by 43%2. Most importantly, using the Advanced Toothpaste in combination with the Advanced Enamel Serum Serum provided significant increase in enamel hardness, with 82%3 recovery of enamel hardness after 3 days. That means even healthier teeth and beautiful natural whiteness.
Avoid food and drink that cause staining
If you’re wondering how to keep your teeth white through your diet, then consuming the likes of coffee, tea, tomato sauce, and red wine in moderation will help. Food and drink like these can cause discoloration, so the more you consume, the higher the risk of losing the natural whiteness of your smile.
Eliminating stain-inducing items is a good solution, but it’s not always practical – and cutting out your favourites certainly isn’t fun. So, if you can’t possibly go without your morning coffee or evening glass of wine, you could always drink it through a straw – that way contact with your teeth is limited – or have a glass of water right after.
Follow these tips to keep teeth white and healthy and you’ll soon see results – and so will those around you. Treat yourself to cutting edge at-home tooth technology with Regenerate’s clinically proven products, and by strengthening enamel and preserving your teeth’s natural whiteness your smile will certainly get noticed for all the right reasons.
