Whiter Teeth May Help You get a Great Job or Possibly a Date
Everyone wants a dazzling smile and who can blame them? Whiter teeth can make you look younger, are more aesthetically pleasing and make you feel better about yourself. In fact, research has shown that whiter teeth may actually help you land that dream job (applicants with whiter teeth were 58% more likely to get hired) or make you more attractive on the romance front (over 70% of women said that whiter teeth made men more attractive).
What to Do and What to Avoid When Whitening Your Teeth
To that end, here are some quick tips for making your teeth really gleam. First, although some home remedies may temporarily remove stains, they can also be harsh on teeth and damage the enamel. And once enamel is gone, it is gone for good. For instance, some sites recommend using a combination of baking soda and lemon. Besides being acidic, the concoction is also abrasive. Both of which can really harm your teeth and increase your chance of cavities and future staining.
Brush Your Tongue
One surprising way to whiten your smile is to buy a new toothbrush and makes sure to brush your tongue when you brush your teeth. You see, your tongue is home to a lot of bacteria and many of them can cause discoloration. Be sure to use long strokes and start at the back of your tongue. Rinse your brush out after each strip to keep from adding the bacteria back onto your tongue with the next stroke.
Change Your Diet
Did you know that changing up your diet by adding fresh strawberries, nuts, apples, cauliflower and raw carrots can help freshen your smile? These foods are not only good for your waistline, they have enough crunch to gently clean your teeth and remove plaque. And, if you enjoy acidic foods such as limes, oranges and lemons, make sure to rinse your mouth out with water afterward. The reason being that their natural acids can erode your teeth, making them more prone to staining and damage in the future.
If you are going to use an over-the-counter tooth whitening regimen, be sure to choose gels over strips. The reason is that strips tend to be less effective in creating an even distribution of whitening solution. One of the major drawbacks to over the counter products is that they can greatly increase tooth sensitivity in the process.
