Here are 5 Safe Teeth Whitening Tips 

We’ve prepared a list of five things you can do at home.

Few people have naturally white teeth, as teeth tend to yellow with age. However, maintaining excellent oral hygiene and having regular dental checkups can help to keep teeth bright.

1. Refrain from high-colored foods and drinks.

Sorry, coffee lovers, but it’s one of the worst culprits for teeth staining. It’s best to avoid drinks such as coffee, sodas or sports drinks rich in color.

Acidic foods and drinks can also affect your teeth. High-colored foods and drinks can erode enamel, setting the stage for stains.

3. Get plenty of calcium in your diet

Some tooth discoloration is caused by enamel eroding and exposing the dentin underneath, which is yellow. Therefore, anything you do to strengthen the enamel of your teeth will help keep your teeth pearly white.

2. Use teeth whitening toothpaste and mouthwashes

Teeth whitening toothpaste and mouthwash can be used as routine maintenance to remove stains. 

4. Maintaining excellent oral hygiene

Regular brushing and flossing protects the enamel, prevents gum decay, and removes stains.
