    3rd September 2014 by thecourtyardclinic

    White teeth are a sign of beauty and health in modern society. Most of us have heard of dental bleaching or tooth whitening but there is a lot of marketing associated with the whitening industry.

    Here are 5 top tips for keeping your teeth white for as long as possible after whitening:

    1) Watch your diet: anything that can stain a white T shirt can stain your teeth. Curry, red wine, coffee, ketchup

    2) Invest in an electric toothbrush: manual toothbrushing can be very effective if done well. Electric brushes will in general be better at removing stains and so invest in a good one to keep your teeth sparkling!

    3) STOP SMOKING!!: smoking stains the teeth very quickly. In order to maintain sparkling white teeth you need to kick the habit!

    4) Increase the visits to the hygienist: maintaining regular visits to the hygienist will help to remove any stains as well as keeping the gums nice and healthy

    5) Whitening toothpastes: Most whitening toothpastes have abrasive components which can lead to sensitivity, make sure the toothpaste has a high fluoride content to counteract this
