A brilliant, brighter smile can make you look more attractive, especially to the opposite sex. With a beautiful, confident smile, you’ll be perceived as energetic, engaging, and exciting. Having a brighter smile doesn’t only mean landing a date, but it also means that you can secure your confidence and a dream job. It has been researched that a whiter smile demonstrates your self-image and leaves a memorable mark on your audience.
But what if your smile isn’t that bright?
There are usual teeth whitening methods that you can use, over-the-counter teeth bleaching or professional teeth whitening. However, there are also uncommon ways to help you get a brighter, sexier smile.
Swap your toothbrush for a brighter smile
Getting a whiter smile could be as easy as swapping your old toothbrush for a new one. Your old brush might be worn down; changing your toothbrush every two months is highly recommended. The same applies if you are using automatic brushes such as Sonicare or Oral B.
Include your tongue when brushing, or better yet, use a tongue scraper
It’s not just about having fresh breath when you brush your tongue, but it’s also about leaving the bacteria on the surface of your tongue undisturbed. Your tongue can harbor bacteria that can lead to discoloration. Use the tongue scraper or a soft brush and clean the back of your tongue. Then, rinse your brush after every stroke. It’ll help eliminate the bacteria on the brush without having them re-deposited on your tongue. Using a tongue scraper is necessary for proper oral hygiene and for preventing sulfides that cause bad breath or halitosis.
Rinse mouth with water after eating citrus fruits
Citrus fruits are high in vitamin C, but they’re also known to erode tooth enamel because of their acidity, causing your teeth to stain more easily. To fix it, rinse your mouth with water immediately after consuming citrus or acidic fruits. In this way, the destructive acid will be diluted off your teeth.
Eat raw fruits
Eating fresh fruits and veggies can keep your teeth clean as they can remove surface stains and plaque, which can lead to cavities.
Check your dentist
No matter how discolored your teeth are, you must check with your dentist when you begin your whitening process. Dr. Anthony Mobasser will help you determine what internal and external stains are. If you have an intrinsic or internal stain, it can only be removed by a dentist. Surface or external stains, on the other hand, can be eliminated through those uncommon tips mentioned earlier and the use of a suitable whitening professional method in the dental office.
It’s always a good idea to check with your dentist to achieve a brighter smile instead of just using teeth whitening materials that you can purchase online or in a department store. Most of these materials can harm your enamel and teeth more than reasonably.
