Teeth whitening advices. How to get stains off your teeth? Over-the-counter toothpastes, gels, and rinses help remove some surface stains. Many of these products contain mild abrasives, chemicals, or polishing agents. Unlike bleaches, they don’t change the natural color of teeth. Some people still prefer the age-old home remedy of baking soda and a toothbrush to gently whiten teeth at home. Also, some foods such as celery, apples, pears, and carrots trigger lots of saliva, which helps wash away food debris on your teeth. Chewing sugarless gum is a tooth-cleansing action and also triggers saliva. A bonus from all that saliva: It neutralizes the acid that causes tooth decay. With teeth, more saliva is better all around.
Baking Soda & Lemon: Mix a tablespoon of toothpaste, a pinch of salt, a bit of baking soda, and 4-5 drops of lemon juice in a bowl. Brush your teeth with this mixture for 4-5 minutes. You’ll see the difference after just one use. Use this method every other week.
If your teeth are grayish, rather than yellow, bleaching won’t do much. You’ll need to seek out methods to correct the graying, which may include restorations on cavities. For graying you can’t fix otherwise, you may want to invest in bonded teeth or veneers. One common side effect of teeth whitening is sensitive teeth in the 24 hours after your teeth have been exposed to whitening gel. You can take a pain reliever like ibuprofen if the sensitivity is too much to bear.
Teeth that are damaged or decayed will need to be restored. Your ability to chew properly will be compromised if the problem is not addressed. In some cases, a filling can protect against further decay, but this option may not provide the necessary protection your case needs. It is also possible the tooth is still relatively healthy, which means a full dental crown is not required. At 75 Harley Street, we provide patients a number of options to restore teeth that look natural whilst providing strength and stability. Inlays and onlays, also known as partial dental crowns, are usually made from a strong ceramic material. The result is an almost invisible restoration that can last for many years.
