Whether you feel self-conscious about your smile, or you simply want to take a proactive approach to keeping your teeth as white and bright as possible—you might be searching for a few tips. While there are lots of whitening products out there, you can brush your way to a whiter and brighter smile.
Why Do Teeth Yellow?
There are many factors that contribute to discoloration, many of which you can control. Our teeth are protected by enamel, which overtime begins to wear down. Some of this wear and tear is simply part of the aging process, however, much of it is under our control. As our enamel wears down, it develops microscopic crevices—in which debris gets trapped, slowly discoloring your teeth. Some of the largest contributing factors to gradually yellowing includes:
- Prescription medications
- Poor oral hygiene
- Overbrushing, and wearing down your enamel
- Dietary choices—particularly coffee, herbal tea, dark soda, wine, and highly acidic foods
Can Brushing Really Whiten Your Teeth?
Between professional whitening at your dentist’s office, over-the-counter whitening strips, and whitening toothpaste—it is easy to assume that there isn’t much you can do to reverse or slow the yellowing. If your teeth have severely yellowed, you may require professional whitening. However, if your teeth are only a few shades darker, or you want to take a proactive approach to keeping them white and bright—brushing is essential.
Begin by perfecting your daily oral hygiene routine. If you only brush your teeth in the morning, commit to brushing twice daily—and you should see a noticeable difference in a matter of weeks.
