Dr. Kristian Rapisarda, dentist in Camas, offers helpful tips to maintain bright smiles.
CAMAS, WA, October 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Professional teeth whitening services provide patients with pearly white smiles in less time than at-home products. For this reason, Dr. Rapisarda is pleased to offer the greater Camas area teeth whitening treatments. Dentist grade whitening products can make teeth five to ten shades lighter in just one session.
Unfortunately, teeth whitening treatments are not permanent. Teeth remain susceptible to staining and general wear. "Whitening treatments are just part of the journey to maintaining a healthy, bright smile," said Dr. Rapisarda, 98683 dentist. "Teeth need a little help. It's important for patients to remain diligent with their oral care." According to Dr. Rapisarda, the following tips help keep smiles shining their brightest.
Visit the dentist.
"For truly dull, discolored or stained teeth, nothing gets results faster than a trip to the dentist," said Dr. Rapisarda. "Routine cleanings are a part of this, not just teeth whitening treatments."
Maintaining a dedicated oral hygiene regimen keeps more than decay and cavities away. Brushing, flossing and gargling daily keeps superficial stains from becoming a more permanent problem. Toothpastes with peroxide or baking soda provide extra whitening power.
It is well-known that cigarettes and chewing tobacco carry their share of health risks. The undeniable affect tobacco products have on teeth is less publicized. Indulging in this vice turns teeth a buttery yellow.
Skip or cleanup morning lattes.
Coffee, tea and espresso drinkers are a committed bunch. Unfortunately, their love for these caffeinated beverages leads to stains and discoloration. "Try brushing your teeth after your morning cup instead of before," suggested Dr. Rapisarda. "If that is not an option, gargle with a cleansing mouthwash immediately after."
While acidic foods and drinks do not actively stain teeth like coffee or tobacco, they do break down enamel. When enamel wears, teeth become less vibrant and stains begin to form on dentin-the deeper layer.
