March Makeover: How To Get Whiter Teeth This Spring

Portrait,Of,Beautiful,Young,Woman,With,Perfect,Smile.,Isolated,On Are you looking for ways to whiten teeth easily? Your dental team at Aesthetic Dentistry can help you get a whiter, brighter smile this March! Get whiter teeth this spring with six easy suggestions!

Brush With Baking Soda

Baking soda is the active ingredient in many over-the-counter whitening products for one very good reason: it works! Baking soda contains a mild abrasive that can scrub away surface stains. It also creates a naturally alkaline environment that prevents the growth of stain-causing bacteria.

Use Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is also an active ingredient in over-the-counter whitening products because it is a natural bleaching agent. Before you brush, rinse with a solution of equal parts water and 3% hydrogen peroxide. You can also purchase whitening toothpaste that contains stronger concentrations of hydrogen peroxide.

Be careful not to overdo it, though, as strong concentrations of hydrogen peroxide can irritate your gums and cause tooth sensitivity.

Eat Fruits and Vegetables

Fresh fruits and vegetables begin to appear in your local grocery stores in March. Fill your basket with crunchy fruits and vegetables, as they can scrape away stain-causing plaque from the surface of your teeth. Some foods, such as strawberries and pineapple, may help whiten your teeth.

Prevent Food Stains Before They Happen

If you eat dark berries or drink coffee, soda, or red wine, try to limit the amount of time these stain-causing foods and beverages come into contact with your teeth. Use a straw to drink staining beverages, for example, and rinse your mouth with water after eating berries.

Brush and Floss Regularly

Bacteria and food particles can combine with saliva to create plaque, which is a sticky substance that can cover the surface of your teeth. Stains love to cling to dental plaque, so removing the plaque through brushing and flossing can help prevent stains.

Make an appointment with Aesthetic Dentistry for professional teeth whitening

Your dentist has access to the most powerful whitening agents available and can safely apply these whitening agents without the risk of complications. Even better, you can get your teeth as white as possible in just one day without using messy whitening toothpastes, strips, and rinses.
