6 Things That Keep Your Teeth White

Do you wish y our teeth could be whiter? If so, you’re not alone. A bright, white smile is one of the few features that is universally attractive. Genetics of course play a role in the appearance of your teeth, but they aren’t the only factors. Your habits and lifestyle also come into play. As it turns out, there are some small but significant things you can do that can help prevent stains, and keep your smile from fading. A local Miami Beach, FL dentist lists some of them below.

B  rushing

No surprises here! Brushing is at the top of the list for a reason. It’s the single most effective way to keep your teeth clean and healthy, which in turn helps keep them white. We recommend brushing twice a day, for about two minutes at a time. It’s worth noting that many people miscalculate how long two minutes actually is, at least when it comes to brushing their teeth. Put a clock in your bathroom, or use a timer app on your phone. 

Good Eating/Drinking Habits

When it comes to staining, foods and beverages are definitely not all created equal. Red wine, coffee, and tea are some of the worst offenders here. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy these things: just rinse with water after. Using a straw can also help.

Don’t Smoke

Cigarette smoke isn’t just bad for your teeth. It’s also bad for the rest of your body, as well as your wallet. Quitting may not be easy, but it’s well worth it in the long run. Your future self and your future smile will both thank you!


Even if you brush diligently, you won’t get your teeth completely clean if you don’t floss. The good news is that once you get used to flossing, you’ll really feel a difference when you don’t.

Whitening Toothpastes

Whitening toothpastes aren’t strong enough to make your teeth blindingly white in and of themselves. However, they do help. Ask your dentist for specific advice.

Whitening Treatments

Last but certainly not least, whitening treatments really can make a dramatic difference. You can of course find over-the-counter products, but professional ones tend to be much more effective. Your dentist can discuss different options with you.
