For most people, having beautiful white teeth is a sign of good health and youthfulness. Of course, good oral hygiene is very important for overall health. But over time, and even with proper care of your teeth, a little natural discolouration often tends to appear with the spring collection. Let’s look at some simple ideas and methods that you can use to remedy this, including choosing a dental implant.
Some simple methods to keep your teeth white
Let’s first look at what can be done to prevent your teeth from turning yellow too quickly. First of all, it is important to know that a slight discolouration that appears gradually is normal and natural, simply because the enamel of your teeth gradually loses its density. What we’re talking about here is limiting or slowing down this discolouration.
The first thing you can do is to limit the foods that stain your teeth the most.
Coffee and tea are the most colourful, as well as some herbal teas. It’s hard to do without your morning coffee, or afternoon tea, you might say? It is not necessary to do without them in order not to have darkening teeth, but just to limit the consumption of these drinks. And above all, a very important point: you must not let their deposit settle, but on the contrary, you must brush your teeth quickly afterwards! This very simple habit allows you to continue enjoying your favourite coffee, while limiting its effect on the colour of your teeth.
Certain substances have a natural teeth whitening effect, and their consumption can also help you to effectively prevent it.
The best known and most effective is lemon juice. Thanks to its natural acidity, lemon will dissolve the deposit on the surface of the tooth. Its second advantage being of course its richness in vitamins, but that’s another subject!
A second agent that can whiten your teeth is bicarbonate, which is easily found in pharmacies or supermarkets, and that you just have to put on your toothbrush. It also dissolves with some effectiveness the stain you want to get rid of.
The only small disadvantage of these two methods, lemon and bicarbonate, is that if you use them too often, they will eventually weaken the enamel of your teeth… Effective, therefore, but perhaps a little too much if you use them too frequently!
Recover the whiteness of your teeth by choosing a dental implant.
Another very simple and long-lasting method is to call upon a specialized dental clinic that can solve your small problem efficiently.
Several techniques exist. The first consists of using small ferrules formed from your teeth, as well as the peroxide that the clinic gives you, which you will apply at home for about ten days. It is the least expensive method, and already brings very good results.
Another method is to use very powerful LED lamps that will work with certain products applied directly on the tooth. Guaranteed effectiveness! The investment is a little more consequent, but you will gain in comfort and simplicity.
A third method that is offered to you, and by far the most effective, is to choose a dental implant. Of course, this requires a reliable and recognized dental clinic, since these operations require perfect skills. Depending on the health of your teeth, consolidation may sometimes be necessary, but most of the time an implant is more than enough.
Thanks to this technique, not only will you gain in aesthetics with beautiful white teeth, but you will also regain impeccable functionality, especially for chewing. It’s a great way to enjoy life to the fullest!
