Top Tips For a Healthy Smile in 2016

Now that Christmas is behind us, we're moving towards the warmer months and thinking about what we'll be doing in 2016. The one thing that'll make a huge difference to how we feel when we look back on the photographs of our year is a bright, healthy smile! So it makes sense to spend a bit of time thinking about the best ways to make the most of your smile this year.

Whether you want to bring out the best in your pearly whites for a special occasion, or you just want to brighten up your teeth in general, there are many ways to give yourself a whiter smile. Smiles are one of the things that people notice first when they meet new people, so paying attention to getting it right can make a big difference to your social life, too!

How Can I Make My Teeth Whiter?

  1. Visit a dentist. You should see your dentist regularly - ideally at least once or twice a year - to keep your mouth and teeth healthy. If you have discolouration or staining on your teeth, your dentist or hygienist will be able to clean them for you and give you advice on the best way to care for them to prevent damage or future problems.
  2. Eat well. Your teeth are, naturally, influenced by your diet, and it's important to eat well in order to maintain good oral hygiene. Sugary foods and those high in acid can be damaging to your teeth, and simple changes, such as eating sweets with meals rather than throughout the day, can make a big difference to how good your teeth look.
  3. Give up smoking. Smoking isn't just bad for your health, it causes many problems for your teeth, including discolouration. Giving up smoking will reduce your risk of mouth cancers significantly, give you much more pleasant smelling breath and ensure that your teeth remain whiter for longer. Win, win, win!
  4. Look after your teeth. Brushing your teeth twice a day with a good toothbrush and toothpaste is the most important thing you can do to keep your teeth white and healthy. Flossing once a day is also essential to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent staining and the build up of plaque.
  5. Use a whitening treatment. There are many different whitening treatments that will help to restore your smile if you have noticed that your teeth are stained or discoloured. Whitening toothpaste are a good place to start, but your dentist or hygienist will be able to advise you on the best professional treatment to safely and easily whiten your teeth for a long term smile solution.
