Dentist Deer Park Tips: 6 Teeth Whitening Tricks That Actually Work

6 Teeth Whitening Tricks That Actually Work

Everyone wants a beautiful, shiny, white smile. For most people, that is very possible if they know about and practice these dental tricks.

Brushing twice and flossing once a day are the first step. This practice keeps teeth clean from food particles that can form plaque and degrade tooth enamel.

Be sure to use a soft brush (so as to not damage gums) with a normal, fluoride enhanced toothpaste. Fluoride hardens tooth surfaces making them more robust against staining and decay. Fluoride mouthwash supplements the effects of fluoride toothpastes.

Reasons You Might Need Dentures

Tooth Loss

Tooth loss affects a significant part of the Australian population. Whether you’ve lost teeth to decay, periodontal disease or an accident, having missing teeth can be embarrassing, inconvenient and uncomfortable.

Luckily, missing teeth can be easily replaced using the most advanced restorative dental solutions. The most common of these options are dentures.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are a set of false teeth that fit over the gums (full dentures) or clip into place on existing teeth (partial dentures). Dentures can be used on your upper teeth, lower teeth, or both. Dentures have a gum-colored acrylic base that your Smart Smiles dentist will match to the color of your gums to make your mouth look natural.
