White Teeth Are Easy to Maintain At Home According to Most Dentists


SeniorCoupleRedWineSmEnjoy a glass of red wine, coffee, or tea and maintain a bright white smile. Yes, it is possible to eat those blue or black berries that you love so much and still show off your pearly whites. In Fairbanks, you can find a dentist to assist in the preservation of a beautiful smile so you can go through your day without the worry of a dingy grin.

Maintaining your regular six-month dental cleanings is not only the start to a beautiful smile, but also a healthy mouth. During your cleanings, your dental hygienist will remove plaque, tartar, and stain that have accumulated on your teeth between cleanings. All of these can cause your teeth to look yellow, brown, and/or black which can lead to a lack-luster smile and cause self-consciousness.

After your professional cleaning, you can maintain your movie-star smile with the use of inexpensive whitening toothpaste and mouthwash. There are many safe whitening systems that are on the market today that can be easily picked up from your neighborhood grocery or drugstore. Your dentist or dental hygienist can discuss and recommend the systems that will fit your lifestyle.

Brushing, flossing, and using a mouthwash are recommended when maintaining a healthy mouth. By using a “whitening” system that includes a toothpaste and mouthwash, you can achieve the best of both worlds — a healthy mouth, free of infection-causing plaque and tartar, combined with a bright white smile that you can be confident in on a daily basis.

Have a conversation during your next dental visit about how to maintain a healthy mouth as well as a smile that makes you feel confident. There are many different options for toothpaste and rinses. You’ll need support from the dental team to help narrow down the products that will fit your lifestyle. Contact a dental office today to start with a thorough dental exam and cleaning.
