A bright white smile is something that everyone wants to get but can be hard to maintain once achieved. Brushing, flossing, rinsing and visiting your Aylmer dentist regularly will help your teeth look their best, but what about the times in between?
Here are some awesome teeth whitening hacks that will help keep your teeth their brightest during those in between moments.
“Teeth Whitening Pens – SmileActives makes a teeth whitening pen that comes in tasty flavors like vanilla mint and gets the job done quickly. Apply the pen to the teeth up to three times daily, allow the liquid to dry on the teeth for 30 seconds and then go about your day. No need to rinse!
Chew Gum with Xylitol – Multiple studies have shown that chewing gum that contains xylitol twice daily helps fight tooth decay by lowering plaque buildup. Brands like Trident make gums with this ingredient, so pick up a pack and get chewing if you’re looking to whiten your teeth.
Baking Soda and Lemon – Baking soda is an ingredient you’ll notice on the label of your toothpaste because of its stain removing properties, according to Colgate. Adding baking soda to strawberries or another food containing malic acid will create a DIY teeth whitening mixture that won’t cost you a dime!”
Remember to only use these techniques sparingly. Regular brushing, flossing, rinsing and visiting your Aylmer dentist to keep your teeth looking their brightest.
