Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, so it’s natural that you’d want to keep it bright and white. The good news is, you can whiten your teeth at home using a few simple tricks.


Get a dental cleaning every 6 months. 

Make a habit of visiting your dentist every 6 months for a dental cleaning. By doing so, you’d be regularly removing stains and maintaining whiter teeth for a brighter smile.


Choose red lipstick

Ladies, this is a simple and easy trick. Lipstick draws attention to the teeth, so it’s important to choose the right color such as dark reds and pinks. Faint or light-colored lipstick can dull out the brightness of your pearly whites. 


Eat foods that clean your teeth naturally

Many foods and drinks can stain your teeth yellow, so we advise you to stay away from them. Thankfully, there are some vegetables and fruits that help naturally whiten our teeth, like strawberries. In fact, strawberries contain malic acid – an active substance that removes stains from the surface of your teeth! Other foods include apples, carrots, and celery. These can actually help produce a large amount of saliva – a surprisingly natural way to whiten teeth.


Clean and brush your teeth regularly

If you’re completing a whitening treatment, it’s crucial that you brush your teeth at least twice a day. This will also maintain healthy teeth and gums. Flossing is often neglected. It does not help in your whitening process, but it does remove any remains of food that may have gotten stuck in your teeth which can cause cavities and long-term discoloration.


Stay away from colored drinks 

If you want to guarantee whiter results, make sure you don’t over-consume colored drinks like tea, coffee, or soft drinks, that may stain your teeth. We also advise you to clean your teeth before and after consuming colored drinks.


Use clear mouthwash

Did you know that blue or green mouthwash can affect the color of your teeth? To avoid that, choose a colorless mouthwash that will maintain the whiteness of your teeth and one that is SFDA approved.
