If you take care of your teeth with regular check ups twice a year and thorough brushing and flossing, you may be wondering how you can give your smile a boost. Sure, your teeth will be generally healthy and your mouth will be clean, but will you feel confident to smile wide in selfies? There are steps you can take on a daily basis to keep your teeth white, especially if you’ve already invested in our KoR Deep Bleaching System.
It’s What’s on the Surface
When it comes to stains, it does matter what’s on the surface of your tooth. These surface-level stains develop from the foods you eat and dark beverages you drink. Red wine, coffee, dark cola, and brown sauces may contribute to your teeth yellowing over time. While you may not need to completely avoid these, rinsing your mouth or brushing your teeth after consuming them could help. Other major culprits include smoking and chewing tobacco.
Look Deep Within
There are some cases of tooth discoloration that do not begin on the surface, but rather deeper into tooth. These require other kind of cosmetic fixes, like veneers. Though the cause for this type of discoloration may not be obvious, some possibilities are tooth decay, genetic predisposition, or a tooth injury. Your dentist will be able to help you determine where your tooth stains came from.
Small Changes Could Yield Big Results
If you want to see some results with your teeth, try trading out the dark wines, colas, and coffees for white wine, Sprite, and herbal tea. It might not be your first choice, but it could make the difference you’re looking for. Especially if you’ve invested in teeth whitening, it could be worth making small changes for a lasting impact on your smile.
