There is a huge craze over white teeth. Everyone wants to whiten their teeth and have a perfect smile. We can whiten your teeth for you or you can use whitening strips. But there comes a point when you need to lay off the whitening strips. If used too much they can strip the enamel off your teeth and do damage to your roots. There is an easier way to whiten that we recommend to all of our patients. Brush your teeth. You can whiten your teeth on your own in just a few months.

Start by brushing your teeth after you eat. If you brush your teeth for a few seconds after eating you can break off plaque and food that is left over on your teeth. This will prevent cavities and help whiten your teeth. The longer you wait to brush your teeth after you eat the yellower your smile will be.

Brush twice a day for 2 minutes. If you brush your teeth for 2 minutes twice a day you will have a whiter smile. We guarantee it.

Use a toothpaste that contains baking soda. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide have been shown to whiten teeth. Simply switching your toothpastes can whiten your smile.
