Why is it Difficult to Keep Your Teeth White?
Over time, your protective enamel naturally erodes, revealing the less-dense dentin layer beneath. Compared to teeth enamel, dentin takes on the colour of food and drinks more easily. This fact is one of the main reasons why it is so difficult to maintain a perfectly white smile. Many people consume heavily staining food and drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, pop, berries, citrus, and many more. When consuming items like these, an impression is left on your teeth which fades their natural white colour.
Keep Your Teeth White at Home
A healthy oral hygiene routine is key to promoting a bright smile. Properly brushing twice-a-day, flossing at least once, rinsing with mouthwash, and maintaining a healthy diet will help to keep teeth naturally white. We also recommend limiting the consumption of acidic substances like coffee, red wine, berries, and citrus, as they commonly stain teeth. If you are going to consume these, it is ideal to brush or rinse your mouth afterwards to reduce any tooth discolouration.
How We Whiten Your Teeth
With so many techniques and products available to achieve a whiter smile, it can be difficult to choose which option is right for you.
