Want to look your best this holiday season? Are you concerned about the whiteness of your smile? You can brighten your smile in time for those holiday events when you see the dentist in Owensboro and Beaver Dam, KY. At Dr. Travis Wilson Family Dentistry, we help our patients achieve healthy teeth and gums. We also offer professional teeth whitening services for our patients. Here’s what to know.
Know Which Drinks and Foods Stain Teeth
Foods and drinks that stain your teeth include:
- Red and white wine
- Cranberries and cranberry sauce
- Tomato sauce
- Dark sauces and gravies
Avoiding these foods can help you maintain whiter teeth, but if you’ve been consuming them, be wait about an hour and then brush your teeth. This will help remove stains and will help keep your teeth whiter and brighter.
Maintain Good Oral Hygiene At Home
Brush your teeth twice daily, and floss once each day. Use an electric toothbrush, if possible. Your dentist can recommend a good electric toothbrush for your needs. Finally, remember to replace your toothbrush (or toothbrush head if you’re using an electric toothbrush) every three months.
See the Dentist, If It’s Time
Most dental professionals recommend their patients come back for a professional cleaning every six months. If you haven’t been to see the dentist for a cleaning in the last six months, make the appointment for your next cleaning as soon as possible. During the cleaning, the dentist will remove tartar, which can make your teeth look yellow or brownish.
Make an Appointment to Whiten Your Teeth
Professional teeth whitening is safe, effective, and can get your teeth several shades whiter. Make an appointment for professional whitening before the holiday season begins.
