No one likes teeth with discoloration, neither you nor your opponents. Learn the 6 most important tips for whiter teeth in this blog post.
But before we start talking tips, I want to tell you that I have gathered my knowledge on this subject from various dentists, experts and articles.
1. LET'S START WITH NUTRITION AGAIN.
We know that coffee and cigarettes are not good for your health!
These two components are main responsible for unattractive teeth! We don't want to tell you that you have to quit your friendship with coffee, tea, wine & cigarette, no, that would be too much to expect! All you should do is brush your teeth or chew chewing gum afterwards.
2. THE PROPER CLEANING OF THE TEETH
Dental care should be a well-known concept to everyone. Because no or insufficient dental care makes your teeth simply not white! Here are a few facts about proper dental care:
- Brush your teeth 2-3 times a day.
- Do not press the toothbrush too hard on the teeth.
- Use Bass method (move toothbrush back and forwards at a 45 degree angle, then brush away from gums).
- Wait at least 30 minutes after eating for the PH level to return to normal.
- Floss daily.
- Change toothbrush at least every 3 months.
3. ON THE SUBJECT OF DENTAL FLOSS
A difficult subject, I know! But these things are really helpful, if not essential! I want to tell you now why, even if your dentist has probably already explained it to you a few times :D... Through the food residues in your mouth or between your teeth tartar is formed! And what is tartar? Exactly... Ugly! It puts shadows on your teeth and looks just unattractive! So from now on, floss about 2 times a day, then don't forget to rinse your mouth - and you'll be that much closer to a dazzling smile!
4. THE RIGHT TOOTHBRUSH
Is there such a thing as the right toothbrush? You can't say that across the board. What I can tell you is that there is one wrong toothbrush. The toothbrush with hard bristles. With hard bristles you quickly get the feeling that it cleans better and more. This can be true under certain circumstances, but it can also damage or wound the gums. Here I can only give everyone the advice: use soft or medium-hard bristles. They are more gentle and achieve the same results.
5. THE VISIT TO THE DENTIST
Feared by many, loved by few! Yes, the upcoming visit to the dentist always brings such a bland aftertaste. However, the visit to the Doc to check our teeth at least 2 times a year, is mandatory! Our beloved dentist, not only looks whether everything is still in order with our teeth, he usually removes plaque and polishes your teeth. My tip: treat yourself to a professional dental cleaning 2 times a year. This will cost between 50 - 120 € and is usually not covered by health insurance. But it is worth it. And it certainly doesn't hurt!
6. EXTRA TIP FOR WHITE TEETH
The COCOBAE team has additionally come up with something for dental care: The COCOBAE tooth whitening powder or the COCOBAE 3-IN-1 Charcoal Toothpaste. It is very easy to handle, when brushing your teeth every day, without extra effort or time. It consists of the purest coconut shell charcoal and is 100% natural & vegan.
I hope you enjoyed and learned from this post.
