Every day normal wear and tear as we age can take a toll on the whiteness of our teeth, unfortunately. However, there are ways to naturally keep your teeth white. Try implementing these 4 easy things into your daily routine and see how your teeth become whiter over time.


Practice Quality Daily Oral Hygiene

One of the best and easiest ways to practice quality oral hygiene daily is to brush your teeth a minimum of twice a day for two minutes each time. In addition to brushing twice daily, also be sure to floss your teeth and if you want to take it another level, incorporate some mouthwash as well. Doing all three of these things consistently will not only help aid in whiter teeth, but it can help with fresh breath as well.


Stay Clear of Stain-Causing Foods and Drinks

While you don’t have to completely avoid these foods and drinks, it is best to limit them to avoid the stain causing effects. Some stain-causing foods and beverages include coffee, berries, and dark wine to name a few as they can cause permanent staining due to their darkness. Basically with any dark and colorful foods it is best to brush your teeth after, or at least rinse your mouth thoroughly, to help limit the staining.


Eat More of These Foods

This may sound a little out there, but by incorporating more foods that increase your saliva production, your teeth will naturally be rinsed with the extra saliva. Some saliva creating foods would include apples, carrots, and cauliflower - anything that is more difficult to eat and takes more time to chew. Incorporate more of these to help keep the whiteness at your teeth top notch.


Protect Your Tooth Enamel

By protecting your tooth enamel, you are protecting your tooth underneath which in return can help protect the whiteness of your teeth. When the enamel is damaged, that leaves your teeth much more susceptible to staining. Be sure you are brushing gently and avoiding hard foods that could damage your enamel.


Then, if all else fails and you are still hoping for whiter teeth, simply set up an appointment with your dental provider to go over advanced teeth whitening options. 


Last but not least, be sure you are staying on top of your bi-annual dental cleanings so that your teeth can be professionally cleaned which in return will help with the overall whiteness and health of your teeth!
