Most people would like to have whiter teeth. You’ve probably noticed that teeth tend to get yellow and dull with the passage of time. If you are one of those who would like whiter teeth, then Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa can help. This blog post has some tips on teeth whitening and what we can do for you.
Don’t Forget to Brush
The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many people still overlook it. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent tooth decay. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume (drinks, food, etc.) but when we brush our teeth, it decreases the damage.
After brushing teeth, another tip is using a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prevents it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.
Sometimes the discoloration is too extreme to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we at Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa offer other powerful care to improve your smile. We provide in-office and take-home teeth whitening. Each method provides effective teeth whitening, which among the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer. Schedule an appointment with us today.
