Monitor These Substances to Keep Teeth White

Posted .

What’s a great method to make your teeth look whiter? Donning a brown tie! But seriously, multiple of our patients have asked us about teeth whitening. While we can help you learn about some ways to enhance the color of your teeth, we’d like to mention that dodging some kinds of foods and materials can help you keep your chompers white and your smile shiny. Here are some foods you should take note of.

Berries like strawberries and blueberries house dark colors that can darken the look of your pearly whites. Make sure you brush your chompers after consuming these foods so they don’t stick to your chompers.

Red wine, coffee, and tea contain color-modifying materials which can drop the shades of your chompers a few positions on the brightness scale. Try drinking water alongside these drinks to fight their negative effects.

In addition to the health issues they bring, tar and nicotine found within tobacco can convert your teeth to shades of brown and yellow. Please think about stopping or cutting back on your tobacco use if you are a user.

We’d love to tell you more about how to keep your teeth white during your next appointment to our Corvallis, Oregon, office. If you haven’t scheduled your next checkup, please phone us now at 541-753-8365 to set up your visit with Dr. Haslam and the staff at College Hill Dental Group.
