Some people’s teeth are whiter than others, but I think it’s safe to say that most of us San Antonio residents want our teeth to be pearly white! If you are one of those people, then the team at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can help you achieve that dazzling smile you deserve. Today we want to share some tips on teeth whitening and what we can do for you!
Don’t Forget to Brush
The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many people still miss this practice. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent cavities. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume (drinks, food, etc.) but when we brush our teeth, it reduces the damage.
After brushing teeth, another tip is using a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prohibits it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.
Sometimes the discoloration is too extreme to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we offer other effective care to lighten your smile. We provide in-office teeth whitening and take home teeth bleaching kits. Each of these provides an effective solution to teeth whitening. Our team is thrilled to be able to offer professional teeth whitening services to our patients because we love to see what a difference these cosmetic dentistry treatments can make.
