Teeth whitening in Grande Prairie

Many patients are seeking a whiter, brighter smile. You don’t have to be a celebrity to get that million dollar smile! Below are some tips to help you achieve a whiter smile.

Maintain good oral health

The health of your teeth and gums should be your first priority- generally the healthier your mouth is the whiter your teeth will appear. Brush and floss regularly to help prevent staining and cavities. Come in for a dental cleaning and exam twice a year to remove stains and plaque that are not otherwise removed during toothbrushing.

Use a whitening toothpaste

Whitening toothpastes usually contain a mild abrasive such as baking soda to gently buff away stains. These toothpastes will gradually remove some of the surface stains over weeks or months. Just make sure that your toothpaste contains fluoride as well, to keep cavities at bay.

Avoid staining beverages

Dark beverages such as coffee, tea, cola, and red wine can all unfortunately lead to staining. Whenever possible, opt for lighter pigmented drinks- plain water is always your safest bet. If you can’t get out the door without your morning cup of joe, swishing some water around in your mouth can help rinse away the staining pigments. Remember to brush and maintain regular dental visits to remove some of the stains.
