4 Tips for Healthy, White Teeth | Dennis Lee DMD

Your smile speaks volumes about you, making it essential to maintain its radiance and health. While teeth whitening procedures have gained immense popularity, incorporating simple changes into your daily routine can also help preserve that pearly white glow. Discover below some tips to ensure your smile stays vibrant and captivating.

Brush and Floss
Maintaining a clean, healthy, and stain-free mouth begins with brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice daily. After indulging in beverages like coffee, tea, soda, or red wine, brushing your teeth helps combat discoloration effectively.

Be mindful of the food and drinks you consume, as some may contribute to dullness or staining of your teeth. Beverages such as wine, coffee, tea, soft drinks, and berries contain chromogens—molecules that adhere to tooth enamel, resulting in a lackluster appearance.

Quit Smoking
Smoking not only poses risks to your heart and lungs but also has detrimental effects on your oral health. It leads to tooth discoloration, increased plaque buildup, gum disease, and more. Quitting smoking is a significant step towards maintaining a bright and healthy smile.

Visit Your Dentist
Regular dental cleanings and check-ups are crucial for preserving the brightness and health of your teeth. Depending on your oral health needs, you may require more frequent follow-up visits. Don’t overlook scheduling bi-annual appointments to ensure optimal oral hygiene.

Maintaining Results
Even if you opt for in-office whitening or over-the-counter products, sustaining the initial results requires ongoing care. Incorporate flossing into your routine, make necessary lifestyle adjustments, and prioritize regular dental visits to uphold the brightness of your smile.
