Tips to get white teeth
Here discussing some effective and far safer methods to get those white teeth that your dream.
Stop or reduce your consumption of drinks that stains such as coffee, cola, tea, red wine, tobacco.
Brush your teeth after every meal, if possible. Electric toothbrush can remove 98.2% of plaque that holds stains. But hard brushing may strip off the surface enamel and expose the darker dentine, which is more vulnerable to staining.
Using mouth washes with antibacterial action and plaque dissolvers can also help in preventing stains.
If brushing after every meal is impossible, try chewing gum. Chewing gum helps to stimulate the production of saliva besides cleaning the teeth by removing the debris. Saliva can neutralize acid and remineralize the enamel that reduces the possibility for discoloration. The sorbital in gum has a therapeutic anti-bacterial action which helps kill decay-causing bacteria. Drinking plenty of water is also good for improving the function of salivary glands.
Rinsing your mouth thoroughly with water is essential especially if you do consume drinks that stain. It is an alternative to brushing after every meal or chewing gum. The water will wash away and dilute the damage.
Tooth bleaching is another option to whiten the enamel of your tooth. In this procedure, the dentists use a teeth whitening kit that contains hydrogen peroxide. The kit also includes some devices such as trays and strips, which can minimize the tissue exposure to the peroxide.
If you have serious stains, meet a dentist. He will apply a veneer which is usually made of porcelain. It is usually attached to the surface of the natural teeth with a type of durable cement. Veneers can be made matching with desired shape and color of your tooth. Veneer itself last around 7-10 years and its application if painless.
If you find a dentist to treat discoloration of teeth, sometimes he may apply a tooth-colored plastic resin to the tooth which is a procedure called bonding. The resin is then bonded and sculpted to the proper shape.
Laser process is also a solution for staining of tooth in which the dentist uses a laser along with applying a whitening gel. The laser light activates the crystals to absorb the energy from the light and increases the lightening effect on the teeth by penetrating the teeth enamel.
