Whiten your teeth for the easiest way to improve your self confidence. Try whitening your teeth if they are stained to avoid being too embarrassed to smile. Use the tips from this article to whiten your teeth and really give you something to smile about.
Rubbing on an orange peel's inside across your teeth is an excellent method of getting rid of stains and whitening teeth. You can make a paste for brushing your teeth with by mixing up dried orange peels and ground bay leaves together. After you use your homemade toothpaste, rinse with water as usual so that you'll get the whitening effects without risking tooth decay from the added sugar in the orange peel.
Be careful with what you eat and drink after whitening your teeth. After teeth whitening treatments, teeth are more apt to absorb stains and colors. Do not eat too many dark colored foods after whitening your teeth. Coffee will easily be absorbed by your teeth and can cause discoloration.
You will probably have to cut your coffee intake way back, if not eliminate it entirely , if you really want to get the whitest smile possible. Coffee is one of the main reasons for stained and yellow teeth. By drinking it on a regular basis, you're adding to the problem. While cutting out coffee can be difficult, it's definitely worth it. A good method for some is to replace their daily coffee with a hot chocolate instead.
Make sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Avoid eating unhealthy junk food. Try to limit the quantity of snacks you have throughout the day. A better diet will help your teeth stay white and reduce the number of cavities you get.
Laser treatments performed in your dentist's office will whiten your teeth wonderfully. Laser whitening may offer the fastest results. A bleaching agent is applied to the teeth before being activated by a laser. You will immediately notice that your teeth are at least five times whiter than they were before the treatment.
Those with gray teeth are likely to be disappointed by tooth whitening processes, as they tend to work only on natural teeth with yellow or brown discoloration. Be aware that a number of treatments are needed to make terribly discolored teeth as bright and white as possible.
One thing to keep in mind when whitening teeth is that crowns will not whiten like teeth do. Whitening your teeth can cause an uneven color presentation if your crowns can be seen when you smile. If this case applies to you, consult with a dentist on how to achieve a consistent whitening effect.
If you've just had whitening done on your teeth, use a straw to sip beverages to keep the whitest color. Cold drinks that are dark in color can cause your teeth to become stained. Drinking these drinks via a straw can keep them away from your teeth so that they retain their luster.
As stated in this article, people notice your smile first, so, you definitely don't want to be ashamed or embarrassed by it. If your teeth are even slightly discolored, it can lead to a low self-confidence which can cause you to feel awkward in some social situations. Use the ideas in this article and you'll get the whiter smile you desire quickly and easily!
