Whitening and five things you need to know about getting a brighter smile.Teeth discoloration is a condition that affects several people from a very young age. A dentist can whiten teeth during a regular checkup. Home whitening remedies can also help whiten teeth. Regular teeth care: brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash can help maintain white teeth. Teeth discoloration is mainly caused by our foods or bad lifestyle choices like smoking. However, the condition is not rare as most people have discolored teeth. White teeth give one the confidence and courage to smile without insecurities.

How one can obtain a brighter and a better smile.

Using a blue-based lip color, a blue-based lip color that can be plump, pink, or red, can help rid the yellowish tones that give the teeth brighter and whiter teeth. The use of lemon and baking soda has qualities which are stain removing; when baking soda is mixed with lemon, the mixture can make a mixture that brightens the teeth and whitens the teeth giving one a sparkling smile. Using a chewing gum that contains xylitol gums reduces the plaque and tartar, which has buildup on the teeth. Using a banana peel is an inexpensive and easy way the peel is rubbed using its inner side and rinse the mouth thoroughly with water the results become visible after5-6 time.

The brightening teeth pen is available in various flavors like vanilla and mint .it is applied three times a day where the liquid stays on the teeth for 30-40 seconds. Increasing the water intake, some liquids like coffee and wine leaves stains on the teeth. This color pigment can take 30 seconds to penetrate the teeth; drinking water after taking the beverages removes stains that decolorize the teeth. They give one a brighter smile. Maintaining oral hygiene by brushing the teeth with the right amount of toothpaste helps remove plaque that has buildup on the teeth. Plaque can decolorize the teeth thus, maintaining proper oral hygiene helps one obtain a brilliant smile.

Limit sugars in the diet combined with the bacteria, which results in acid; the acid corrodes the teeth, making them smile less appealing. It is also essential to regularly visit the dentist for cleaning and fluoride treatments to help maintain the teeth.
