Keeping Teeth White

So what can you do to keep your teeth glowing white? Here are some easy to follow tips:

Avoid Foods That Stain Teeth

Foods with lots of pigment such as soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, most varieties of berries, cherries, and curry will stain teeth. If these cannot be completely avoided, it is recommended to brush your teeth as soon as possible after eating these foods.

Drink Water

You can help prevent stains to your teeth by swishing a mouthful of water around immediately after eating or drinking a staining beverage. This also helps to keep breath fresh.

Use a Straw

Coffee, Red wine, Colas and other dark soft drinks, teas, and cranberry juice can cause staining. Using a straw for these drinks will allow the staining liquid to bypass the front teeth.

Eat Crunchy Foods

Celery, apples, and other crunchy foods will remove food particles in your teeth and help to prevent stains. Sticky foods are more likely to cause staining.

Brush Your Teeth…The Right Way

Brushing your teeth is essential for good oral hygiene. It also helps to remove plaque and keep your teeth white. Here are some tips for getting the most out of brushing:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day
