You’ve probably tried it all from strips, pens, and dentist visits, but what you may not realize that just a few small changes to your daily routine can make a world of a difference when it comes to your pearly whites. Want to keep your teeth in tip top shape try these tips:
Eat Foods That Whiten and Protect
The right diet can fix a lot of things, but keeping your teeth clean is just an added plus. Most chew foods with a lot of fiber like apples, celery, and carrots will keep your teeth white because they help remove stains. They almost act like an exfoliator for your mouth.
Use a Straw
Who knew how important a role a straw could play in keeping your teeth white! Drinking through a straw keeps particles from touching your teeth, keeping them residue free and clean!
“Drink foods out of a straw, so stain molecules bypass the teeth.” We knew we loved our morning smoothies for a reason.
Water….it really is like the source of life. Drink lots of water regularly throughout the day, but especially after a meal. It will help keep the residue from building up on your teeth.
Toothpaste like Glo Whitening Antioxidant Superberry Toothpaste is great because it offers gum benefiting antioxidants and ditches the harmful chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate.
And when all else fails try making your own whiting paste. Mix 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide and just a sprinkle of baking soda into a paste. Dip your toothbrush into the paste, add any toothpaste on top. Brush your teeth, giving a lot of focus to your molars. Let it sit for 2 minutes then rinse with water.
