Keep your teeth healthy and brite

It is important to have healthy teeth not only for your appearance but for your overall health as well. You can keep your teeth white by avoiding foods that stain your teeth and having a good cleaning routine including fluoride

If you want your pearly whites to shine like diamonds and be as strong as titanium, then follow these easy oral hygiene tips.

You Will Need

* Toothbrush and toothpaste
* Floss
* Fluoride rinse
* Good eating habits
* Water
* Dentist
* Baking soda (optional)
* Straws (optional)

Step 1: Clean your teeth

Keep your teeth clean by brushing and flossing at least twice a day. Brush for 2 minutes and use a fluoride rinse to finish your cleaning regimen.

Add baking soda to your toothpaste. Baking soda is a natural, gentle abrasive that can help remove plaque from teeth, keeping them clean and white.

Step 2: Eat right

Avoid sugars and starches that can cause tooth decay. Eat your vegetables. Some vegetables and fruits, such as apples and carrots, can help clean your teeth. Don't forget to eat dairy products. Products like yogurt, milk, and cheese can help neutralize acids and minimize cavities.

If you're a fan of fizzy, sugary, or caffeinated beverages, use a straw to reduce staining and sensitivity.

Step 3: Drink water

Drink lots of water. Drinking water after meals or other beverages can keep stains at bay and keep your breath fresh. Tap water is best because it contains helpful minerals like fluoride.

Step 4: Visit the dentist

Make regular visits to your dentist. This will ensure that your teeth are kept clean, white, and strong. Dentists can also catch problems early and recommend treatment options. A beautiful smile is your reward.
