teeth whiteningDo you wish were smile were just a tad brighter? You’re not alone. In fact, teeth whitening is one of the most frequently requested cosmetic dental procedures today, which isn’t surprising since tooth stains are the most common tooth blemish. While teeth can chip by accident, or form odd spaces due to slightly improper growth, stains can affect nearly any tooth and occur naturally from the foods you eat and a lifetime of use. Luckily, your smile isn’t totally defenseless against unsightly stains. Your Fresno cosmetic dentists, Drs. Alex and Claudia Denes, offer these tips for keeping your smile bright, and offer a choice of professional teeth whitening options in case stains get the best of your smile.

Path to Whiter Teeth

  • Brush and floss—You’ve probably heard it most of your life, but no dental advice would be complete without the vital instruction to brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day, every day. For aesthetic purposes, brushing and flossing help remove the food debris that can stain your teeth, and the bacterial plaque that makes teeth staining easier. Not to mention, keeping your mouth clean will help it stay as fresh as it is bright.
  • Drink water often—If you can’t brush your teeth after a meal, try swishing water around your mouth to dislodge and remove the lingering food particles. Water also helps keep your mouth hydrated and promotes a healthy saliva flow. When your mouth is dry, the bacteria within can multiply and form plaque at a faster rate, increasing the likelihood of stained teeth (and tooth decay and gum disease, to boot).
  • Eat crunchy fruits & vegetables—Apples, celery, carrots, and other crunchy fruits and veggies can help scrub your teeth clean with their slightly abrasive fibrous textures. Try replacing your snacks with these healthy alternatives to give your smile a helping hand against tooth stains.
