Use the information gathered here in this article to keep your teeth white. Buy a tooth whitening
product that contains about 15% of the whitening agent. Too little of the whitening chemicals and the
product will be ineffective. Too much, and your mouth may become irritated by the harshness of the
chemical. Try out a mid-range product; if you tolerate it well and you aren’t getting good results, then
move to a higher concentration.

A great way to naturally whiten your teeth without resorting to harsh chemicals is to use a baking soda
and salt mixture. This is a method that has been used by many people for a long time, that is both safe
and cost effective. There are plenty of toothpaste products that use baking soda in them.

Make sure that you do not become obsessed with keeping your teeth white. This is important because
over-whitening your teeth can damage your gums and teeth, and lead to an unnatural looking smile.
Seek the advice of professionals when concerned about your teeth or any treatment. Stick closely to the
guidelines issued with any product or treatment.

For whiter teeth, avoid smoking or drinking coffee, because these practices can cause receding gums or
yellow teeth. Brush your teeth three times a day, and floss! If you want to get quick results, whitening
strips can help lighten your teeth, but you must maintain healthy practices to ensure your teeth stay
white.

Before you commit to a certain over-the-counter teeth whitener, you may want to check online reviews
or ask your friends for their experience with it. Many times, people pay ridiculous amounts for a product
that promises to whiten their teeth, when in reality, it does absolutely nothing to help or makes teeth
color worse.

Avoid using mouthwashes that contain alcohol or have coloring added to them. These colorings are
known to have a staining effect on your teeth. The chemicals that they use are also not good for you.
One well known mouthwash has been known to stain your teeth a brownish color.

Find a teeth whitening program that fits into your life and schedule. Some require long periods of time
with a gel or other device on your teeth. If you have a busy schedule with little down time, this may not
work for you. Other programs require several treatments in the course of a day. Find one that works for
you.

If you feel as though your teeth are well beyond using products like whitening toothpastes, whitening
strips, and various other at home treatments, you may consider making an appointment with your
dental hygienist to discuss more intense teeth whitening methods done at the dentist’s office.

When using whitening strips or gels, make sure to follow the directions carefully. Products that are left
on too long or used more often than recommended can cause burning or irritation of the gums. Use the
products exactly as stated in the directions to avoid short or long-term consequences.

For many years people have sworn that baking soda works quite well for teeth whitening. There are now
many types of toothpaste that have baking soda right in them so you do not have to mess with making
up the paste yourself. The paste is made up with a bit of salt and baking soda and then brushed onto
your teeth.

Make sure you are cutting back on things like soda, cigarettes, wine, etc. that cause discoloration in your
teeth. It is amazing how effective this can be as you employ other teeth whitening strategies. Not only
will this strategy help whiten your teeth, but it will be very effective in keeping them white.

Get on a regular schedule to visit your dentist, at least 2 times a year. Regular professional teeth
cleanings will help keep your teeth white. Set up appointments in advance. Also, you should have them
call to remind you about appointments so you don’t forget to go.

Use whitening strips. Depending on how badly your teeth are stained, they usually don’t immediately
work. Over time, you will notice your teeth getting whiter. You should use these strips regularly, but not
too much. These strips are easy and convenient to use and keep you from visiting the dentist.

There are a variety of home ingredients that you can use to get your smile looking a little whiter. You
can try using lemon juice or baking soda to help get a cleaner smile. Many home ingredients have been
proven to give you a whiter smile with little effort.

If you want to make your teeth white, it is important to know how to properly brush your teeth.
Scrubbing too hard and brushing too fast can wear away the enamel of your teeth. Instead, go in slower,
circular motions and make sure you are spending enough time on each teeth.

To summarize, you want to be sure that your teeth are as white as can be. As alluded to at the beginning
of this article, some of the best tips and tricks have been provided. Go out and try them yourself or
share with a friend and feel great with a new smile.
