4 Ways to Simultaneously Strengthen and Whiten Your Teeth

Posted in Teeth Whitening

A sparkling white smile really seems like something. But it’s nothing if it’s not healthy. Here are four things you can do that will work to reinforce your teeth while keeping them ultra-bright:

  1. Eat dairy

If your diet lifestyle allows you to have dairy products, then make sure to get plenty.

Dairy naturally contains lots of calcium, which teeth need in order to stay strong. Cheese is an especially great source since it helps balance the pH of saliva, promote healthy saliva flow, and even aids in fighting off bacteria which cause decay and stain.

  1. Use MI Paste™

MI (Minimal Intervention) Paste is a product that contains lots of calcium phosphate to aid in remineralizing enamel. Using this paste as a dentist directs can help you even out white spots and reduce decay and stain, keeping your teeth strong and bright.

Ask your dentist whether MI Paste™ is right for you.

  1. Make a Water-Only Resolution

It’s hard to give up coffee, diet soda, red wine, or whatever else your weakness is. But just see the difference it’ll make in your smile if you try to drink only water! Water is vital for a healthy and clean oral environment and limits the impact of stain.

  1. Brush and Floss

Go back to basics for your most vital weapon in fighting tooth decay and stain. No other method can substitute for the power of a great oral hygiene routine.

Remember that your dentist is your best resource for getting a healthy and beautiful smile. Schedule a visit to your local dental office to learn more about teeth whitening and options for strengthening your teeth.
