Pearly Whites: It’s Not Rocket Science

Your pearly whites are not complex, they have a few simple things about them you need to understand. The enamel provides a protective layer over the tooth, the calcium in the teeth will make them strong and the vitamins and minerals will make them smooth. If you drink, smoke and eat lots of sugar you ill find that the protective layer fades and you begin to have holes in your teeth. This leads to further erosion and before you know it, your teeth are stained and they have small holes in them that capture food and debris.

So if you want your teeth to be pearly whites you should do the following and stick to the basics.

Twice A DayΒ 

You should brush your teeth twice a day and that doesn’t just mean morning and noon. You should try to wait until after breakfast before you brush your teeth as otherwise it’s just an 8-hour gap. Think about it, you brush your teeth once at night and then once again in the morning. Yes you saved yourself from having food stuck in your teeth all night but, then what is the point in brushing them right after you get out of bed? So if you can, try to brush your teeth after breakfast, just after dinner and always floss once or twice a week at lunch.

Get Help

Some people have teeth that are yellow by their natural shade, but that is because the enamel has worn away and now they have no protection from the food and drink being consumed. Speak with professionals such as who can provide you with expert advice and services to make your teeth white again. They also do cosmetic dentistry and if you want a brighter shade of white they can whiten your teeth chemically. This does not hurt and the procedure may only last about 30-minutes. They will clean your teeth first, ask you about your eating habits and then decide on the shade of white that would best suit your complexion and or needs.

Bad Habits

You are well aware of the bad habits you have. You might drink more than you should, you might smoke too often. You might even have bad brushing habits. Everyone knows the kinds of bad habits they have that are making them have poor oral hygiene. You need to stop them or begin cutting down. It’s not rocket science, if you drink too much your teeth will become defenseless. If you eat too much sugar they will need fillings and if you smoke too much you will find teeth begin to malform. Get help with your bad habits or at least, do some research about how they affect your teeth and see if you’re not convinced you need to change your habits.

Getting pearly whites is not some dark art that only a few can understand. You need to stick to the basics. Brush twice a day, floss occasionally and get some expert help if you want a particular level of whiteness.
