The best way to make a lasting impression is to have a bright, healthy smile. Additionally, according to the American Academy of Periodontology, 50% of people say that a smile is the feature they notice first about another person.
To keep your teeth healthy and beautiful, follow these Snow Family Dentistry Tips!
How to Keep Your Teeth Pearly White:
Brush Your Teeth After You Eat
Brushing after every meal- or at least twice a day- will help you maintain healthy, white teeth. Snow Family Dentistry Tip: use a soft-bristled toothbrush to protect your tooth enamel and gums- anything harder might damage them.
Eat Healthy Foods
Sugary or high acidic food can affect your teeth and overall health. To protect your tooth enamel, eat healthy foods like chicken, cheese, nuts, milk, fruits and vegetables. It’s also best to limit beverages that can stain teeth, such as coffee, soda and red wine.
Flossing is a very important part of oral hygiene and can decrease cavities, prevent bad breath and prevent bacteria from forming and spreading in your mouth. This in turn can help keep your teeth pearly white!
Smoking is a very unhealthy habit and is bad for your heart, lungs, teeth, gums and mouth. It also causes bad breath, tooth discoloration, increased plaque and tartar build up, gum disease and more! Even smokeless tobacco can wear down your teeth and gums, exposing the roots of your teeth and increasing the risk of tooth decay. If you’re interested in keeping your teeth clean and healthy, we advise you take the steps to quit smoking.
