Some people’s teeth are naturally whiter than others’. How’d they get so lucky? Most of us want our teeth to be pearly white. If you are one of them, Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City can help you get that brilliant smile with teeth whitening procedures.
There are things you can do on your own, too, to keep your smile bright.
Don’t Forget to Brush
This seems like a no-brainer, but many people are haphazard with this. We mean daily brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and cavity-free. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we eat and drink, but when we brush our teeth, it limits the damage.
After brushing, use a fluoride rinse to finish the job. Fluoride rinses get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prevents it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.
Sometimes the discoloration is too acute to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we offer other efficient procedures to lighten your smile. We provide an effective teeth whitening treatment that really upgrades your smile. Another cosmetic dentistry option is porcelain veneers.
