Discoloured teeth can have a huge impact on your confidence when smiling. Simple techniques of tooth brushing and visiting your hygienist regularly can make a big difference to your smile.
A patient came to see us Time Dental looking to improve her smile. She had neglected her dental health and was very self conscious of the brown stains on her teeth. She had not seen a hygienist in four years and regularly drank tea, coffee, red wine and beetroot juice and still wondered why her teeth were so stained!
The first thing the hygienist did was look at her current daily dental care or lack of it. Once we had given her the right skills and tips for the best home care we started her on a course of hygiene therapy to improve her dental health and freshen her smile. After being treated with our special sparkle polish she was beaming from ear to ear!
Brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste using an electric toothbrush and cleaning interdentally can help to reduce staining and plaque buildup. Small lifestyle changes can help to keep your teeth bright and smile fresh. Having drinks through a straw for example helps to by-pass the teeth and not stain them. Eating carrots and apples has a cleaning action that helps keep teeth bright; as does eating strawberries….in moderation!
