A bright, white smile goes much further than being just that… a bright, white smile. It can contribute to increased levels of self-esteem and confidence which are incredibly important when carrying oneself in the outside world. Yellow, discoloured teeth can foster many insecurities, and is utterly demotivating for those who are plagued by it. The good news however, is that you needn’t live with it all your life long. There are many different options, and whilst we at German Dental Clinic have a few ways to rectify stained teeth, we also advise our patients to practice good lifestyle habits on the regular to make things easier.
By good lifestyle habits, we mean day-to-day living with a focus on food and hygiene. After all, these are the two most crucial aspects that contribute to dental health. Though veneers dubai are a popular option for offering a fairly immediate solution, we can tell you that if you don’t adopt new habits, you’ll definitely end up staining them in no time too. So, if you want long-time brilliant whiteness, we strongly advise you to take a look at the following:
CHANGE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH
Frankly, it astounds us to see just how many people out there aren’t all that invested in the simple act of swapping their toothbrush when necessary. Believe it or not, there are more people than you’d think who’ve been using the same toothbrush at least for a good six months. If you’re guilty of the same, then we’re here to tell you that you need to change course and pronto. You should be replacing your toothbrush at least every three months. Actually, you don’t even need to wait that long. Soon as you notice the bristles bending out of shape and losing their form, chuck it out. You’re going to need a good toothbrush even if you get veneers dubai so get into the habit right away.
BRUSH THE TONGUE
If you don’t’ brush your tongue when you brush your teeth, then you’ve got a whole load of dental issues coming your way. And yes, that includes discolouration. What you have to realise, is that all of these issues stem from bacteria that breeds in your mouth. So naturally your main aim to get rid of as much of it as possible. The tongue is rich ground for bacteria to thrive, which leads to both staining and bad breath. You need to work right from the back of your tongue to the front using long strokes, rinsing your brush out after each one.
RINSE WITH WATER AFTER EATING OR DRINKING
We advise our patients to rinse their mouth out with water after eating or drinking anything, particularly if they’ve just been in for scaling and polishing. This is because aside from preventing food from lodging in-between teeth leading to cavities, gum disease and more, it also ensures staining is reduced to a great extent. Plus, some foods contain acid in them which only wears down the enamel. This is also useful if you’ve had veneers dubai, as it allows you to exercise better maintenance which means your veneers will last for much longer.
None of these are overnight remedies, but if you start today, you’ll soon start noticing and feeling the difference.
