Ways to Get White Teeth Like Celebrities
1. Use an Electric Toothbrush
Most of use an ordinary toothbrush which works just fine to keep our teeth healthy, but if you really want to buff your enamel and help you remove superficial stains effectively then go for an electric toothbrush. It can really help you to whiten your teeth overtime.
2. Consider Whitening Toothpaste
Go for toothpastes which claim whitening of teeth as they have acidic agents to remove stains from the topmost layers of teeth. Start with a small amount to make sure it doesn’t irritate your teeth before you begin using it every day. The effects last until the next coffee, but if used regularly they will keep stains at bay. Also do note that such toothpastes are not suitable for children, because they may be too abrasive for the soft enamel on teeth which are not fully developed.
3. Teeth whitening
If you’re looking for a quick way to white teeth then look out for your dentist! Dentists have safe, highly effective whitening systems that can get you a dramatically whiter smile in just one treatment. They can be customized for your unique needs and are safe as well.
4. Chew Whitening Gum
Choose a sugarless gum available in the market as sugar gum would fuel mouth-borne bacteria. Whitening gum encourages the production of saliva, which helps maintain mouth pH, makes your teeth sparkle and may even disrupt the development of dental plaque.
5. Avoid Staining Using a Straw
Dark-colored beverages like coffee, tea, wine, and even some juices can cause severe staining. You cannot really avoid stains fully but you can go for straws instead of directly sipping from your cup.
6. Porcelain veneers
This is the most sought choice of celebrities to get perfect white teeth. Veneers are thin and durable porcelain shells that are custom made for your mouth and adhered to your natural teeth. Veneers give the appearance of beautifully shaped, white, natural teeth and they last for years with proper dental care. These are especially useful if you have severely discoloured teeth, misshapen teeth due to any reason or any chips or misalignments in your teeth.
7. Adopt a “white diet”
By white diet, I mean white wine or champagne over red, lattes instead of black coffee etc. Also avoid staining foods like tea, coffee or aerated drinks. Also, acidic foods like citrus erode enamel, making teeth more susceptible to decay over time.
8. Floss regularly
Daily flossing helps to breaks up the plaque and bacteria in between the teeth, preventing cavities. It will not directly help you to whiten your teeth but flossing is extremely important for maintaining your oral hygiene.
9. Rinse your mouth
This is another step in maintaining a proper oral hygiene. Use an alcohol-free mouth rinse. Alcohol dries up the mouth and the mouth needs to be moist to prevent bacteria from causing cavities.
10. Whitening with ‘intense light’
It is also a teeth whitening process in which the dentist applies a strong bleaching gel on each tooth and exposes it to intense light. As a result, coloured molecules are oxidised into smaller, less pigmented molecules. You can have white teeth by six to ten shades. It is especially useful for people with extremely discoloured teeth. Some dentists also use chlorine dioxide which causes less sensitivity and seems to be more effective at whitening teeth.
11. Over-The-Counter Diy Bleaching Kits
Diluted bleaching gel is applied to the teeth in a standardised gum shield for an hour each day for two weeks. Anyone can use an over-the-counter kit because the level of bleaching chemical is very low. You need to use them in regular intervals to maintain the whiteness in your teeth. You can find these bleaching kits online easily.
12. Scale And Polish
This treatment will remove surface stains and plaque and make the teeth look cleaner and brighter. In this a dentist, scrapes away hardened plaque, then buffs the teeth. The treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the amount of plaque build-up. The effects last about three to six months, depending on plaque build-up.
13. Give up smoking
Smoking is one of the worst offenders when it comes to stained teeth. It can stain your teeth so bad that it is really difficult to make them white again. So if you smoke then it might be really hard for you to whiten your teeth using more natural methods.
14. Sonic Wave Toothbrushes
These toothbrushes use 31,000 strokes a minute and ultrasonic waves to shift plaque and stains, that make teeth look brighter. The brushes have three unique modes- clean, whiten and massage. The clean mode is the standard mode for superior teeth cleaning, the whiten mode polishes and whitens, and the massage mode pulsates for gentle gum stimulation.
