3 Crucial Steps That Will Improve The Condition Of Your Teeth

Dentist Blog

In order to feel confident about your looks, you need to have teeth that are in good condition. This is possible when you take these steps.

Whiten Teeth Naturally

Drinking coffee and tea may taste great, but if you do it a lot, your teeth may stain. Fortunately, you can take away these stains when you decide to whiten your teeth naturally. One of the best ways of doing this is to use baking soda and lemon juice. Mix these two things together, which will create an acidic solution.

Brush your teeth with this acidic solution for several minutes, and then immediately after, rinse your mouth out with water. Doing this helps prevent the acidic solution from breaking down your tooth enamel. Repeat these steps every day until you see your teeth become whiter. 

Get Porcelain Veneers

As you get older, your teeth may start to break down. Instead of keeping your teeth like this, you can invest in porcelain veneers. These veneers are essentially thin shells, which are attached to the front surfaces of teeth by a dentist.

Thanks to porcelain veneers by a professional like Aaron G Birch, DDS PC, the shape, size and color of your damaged teeth can be improved. As a result, you can smile and talk with confidence. You will even be able to eat normally thanks to these teeth modifications. Veneers are individually sculpted, which gives them an authentic look. No one will be able to distinguish between the veneer and the natural teeth in your mouth.

And, porcelain veneers are resistant to coffee and tea stains, so keeping them looking great will not be a difficult task at all. 

Eat the Right Foods

Perhaps one of the best steps to take in order to have healthy, great looking teeth is to simply eat the right types of foods. Surprisingly, eating cheese is great for your teeth because cheese enhances the production of saliva. The saliva then helps clean your teeth, preventing them from staining.

Nuts and meats are also beneficial for your teeth, as they provide ample amounts of calcium and phosphorous to help remineralize your teeth. It's best to avoid sugary foods, as they can break down your tooth enamel over time. Eating strawberries is very beneficial, as this fruit contains malic acid. This acid will help eat away at the stains on your teeth. 

The way your teeth look can affect the way you feel about yourself. In order to feel confident about your teeth and overall look, the steps above can be taken.

Take Your Health Into Your Own Hands

My name is Katie Langer. For a long time, I was bed ridden and I felt like I had no control over my life. I simply went along with what was instructed by my doctor and I didn't ask questions. It wasn't that my doctor wasn't willing to work with me, but I preferred to simply not think about the illness I was suffering from. I didn't realize that some of the symptoms I was suffering from were side effects of my medication and were not normal. After communicating more with my doctor, I was able to alleviate my symptoms. Since then, I've taken an interest in patient-doctor relationships and how to improve them.
