5 Steps to Naturally Whiter Teeth

A smile is a very simple gesture that makes a world of difference. So what happens when you’re uncomfortable with smiling because of unhealthy-looking teeth?

Having discoloured or imperfect teeth is not just an indication of your oral health. Studies show that your dental condition can also impact your self-confidence and how you interact with the people around you. When you feel better about how you look, you also feel better about yourself in general. So when you’re self-conscious about your teeth and smile less often, it affects your overall mood.

How often you smile also impacts how other people perceive you. Smiling around people creates a positive atmosphere. It also gives people the impression that you are sociable and trustworthy.

So if you’re self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, you’re definitely missing out on the benefits of having a confident smile. It’s a good thing then, that getting whiter teeth is possible.

Here are five steps you can try to help whiten your teeth naturally:

  1. Eat crunchy food. Crunchy foods like apples or pears can scrape away the bacteria on your teeth and tongue.
  2. Floss regularly. Even though we brush our teeth regularly, we tend to skip out on flossing. Flossing is a habit we should keep up on because it prevents staining and tooth decay, which are the factors that affect teeth discoloration.
  3. Rinse with water after your meal. This removes the acids and sugars left behind by what you eat or drink. Doing this can help prevent tooth decay and staining.
  4. Avoid drinks that stain your teeth. Beverages that are intensely colored easily attach to the enamel in your teeth, causing discoloration. Some drinks you should steer clear from include red wine, black tea, sports drinks and cola.
  5. Drink enough water to keep salivary glands active. Saliva regulates the acidity in your mouth and contains enzymes that keep bacteria formation at bay.
