At every appointment, your dentist will brush, floss, and polish your teeth. By removing the buildup of plaque and tartar, your smile is immediately lightened.

Beyond the basics, there are very simple doings that your can add to your overall routine to boost your general health! One such routine is washing that mouth out! A proper intake of water, not only keeps your body hydrated – which means your mouth too! – but it also rids it of harmful organisms. So, drink lots of water because it really does wash your mouth!

Next, take a look at what you are eating. Fresh fruits and vegetables can make all the difference. Fruits, such as strawberries, act as natural abrasives, making them perfect stain removers. As well, fruits and vegetables with a bit of crunch, such as apples and celery, get the mouth working and the increase saliva production to wash away bacteria.

There’s no need for difficult and drastic change. So, crunch away to a brighter smile!
