How’s your smile? If it’s less than perfect and you don’t feel like showing your teeth in photographs, it could be that your teeth are in need of some tender love and care.
For beauty purposes, white teeth are essential. They look awesome, feel awesome, and make us feel awesome about ourselves. Pearly whites gives us the confidence to shine, to smile, and to be at our best all the time.
Unlike other fashions that come and go, glistening white teeth will never go out of fashion. In fact, they are arguably the most essential accessory if you want to sparkle and sport a winning smile that lights up rooms all the time.
We’ve rounded up some ace teeth whitening tips from dental experts, which are super easy to implement. Let’s take a look!
Apply The Right Shade Of Lipstick
You don’t have to go to your dentist and spend a small fortune in a bid to get whiter than white teeth. As it turns out, there are many simple tricks you can apply that whiten your teeth as though by magic.
For example, getting whiter teeth is sometimes just as easy as applying the right shade of lipstick!
What you might not have realised is that there are some lip colours that darken your teeth and some that whiten them. Knowing what dulls and what glows is essential to at least creating the illusion of whiter teeth.
It’s all about knowing what works for you. If you have greyish teeth, for example, you need to avoid red lipsticks.
Adopt A White Teeth Diet
Another one of great teeth whitening tips is to adopt a white teeth diet. If you’re sipping coffee all day long and drinking a glass of wine each night after work, you’re not doing your teeth any favours at all. It’s even worse if you smoke cigarettes, too. Instead of whitening them, you’ll be yellowing them. Which is so uncool!
There is in fact a lot of food and drink that can darken your teeth, including dark juices and beer, as well as gravy and colored soft drinks. Basically, if something is dark in colour, there is a very good chance that it’s going to darken your teeth.
If it’s light, it’s right, and it’s gonna make you white!
Naturally, it’s impossible to avoid all dark food, and I don’t expect you to be the one at the dinner table who refuses your friend’s offer to try their dinner on the account that it’s “too dark”. But each time you eat a meal containing dark food, brush straight afterwards.
