Tips To Brighten Your Smile

Everyone wants a brighter smile. Bright, healthy smiles are one of the signs of great oral health, so it is important to find ways to maintain your smile. We have compiled a few tips to help achieve a brighter, healthier smile.

Tip #1: Try a whitening treatment. Whitening treatments are a great way to whiten your teeth in a short amount of time. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Mulkey and Dr. Hildreth are well versed in providing in-office whitening treatments. For patients who choose opt out of the in-office whitening treatments, we also offer at home whitening treatments for your continue.

Tip #2: Floss your teeth. Flossing removes debris and food stuck between the teeth. Flossing helps prevent debris stuck between your teeth from turning into plaque. Plaque can leave your teeth more vulnerable to stains from drinks and food.Not flossing regularly can even lead to complex dental issues like gum disease. If you don’t know how to floss or aren’t sure if you are flossing correctly, feel free to ask general dentists, Dr. Mulkey or Dr. Hildreth.

Tip #3: There are certain food and beverages that have been proven to weaken the enamel over time or stain the teeth. Some dentist would recommend avoiding soda, red wine, tea, coffee, sugary foods, and hard, sticky candies. Even citrus based foods can possibly weaken the tooth enamel and leave your teeth susceptible to tooth decay.

Following these tips can get you one step closer to the bright smile you’ve always wanted. Take control of your oral health and develop a plan that is right for you.
