How to Get a Whiter Smile

Avoid Foods and Drinks That Stain

While this won’t help your smile get whiter, it will help further staining or yellowing of teeth. Aim to avoid food and drinks that dull your smile. The worst foods and drinks include:

  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Black tea
  • Dark berries
  • Fruit juices
  • Sugary sodas and sports drinks
  • Tomato based sauces
  • Soy sauce
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Candy
Brushing Twice a Day

There are many ADA approved dental toothpastes that can be purchased that include ingredients to help whiten your smile. Check your toothpaste for the ADA seal and brush your way to a brighter whiter smile.

Don’t Smoke or Use Smokeless Tobacco Products

Smoking is the quickest way to a yellow smile and numerous other serious health issues. Do yourself and your smile a favor and don’t smoke or use other smokeless tobacco products.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits

Many at-home teeth whitening kits can be purchased over the counter. However, these at-home kits do present some safety concerns if not properly used. Always consult your dentist first and fully read all of the instructions before using.
