Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Hunter, agrees that everyone deserves to have a bright and white smile. In order to effective achieve your ideal smile Dr. Hunter encourages the following tips that ensure a rejuvenated smile:

  • Replace your tooth brush every three months– Over time the bristles on your toothbrush become dull and lose its effectiveness. Toothbrushes should also be replaced every three month because of the amount of bacteria that accumulates over time.
  • Brush after every meal– Brushing twice a day is not a sufficient amount of times if you want to achieve your ideal smile. For this reason, Dr. Hunter encourages his patients to brush after eating because it decreased the amount of bacteria buildup in the mouth.
  • Avoid sugary foods and drinks– Sugary foods and drinks not only increase the risk of tooth decay, but increase discoloration of teeth. For this reason, foods and drinks with high concentrations of sugar should be limited.
  • Floss regularly– Flossing is key in ensuring that plaque is removed from in between your teeth. If you are suffering from yellow teeth, flossing will make the difference because plaque is the number one cause of discolored teeth.
