In these changing times, you never know when a lockdown might come. You never know from one day to the next what measures will be implemented to keep you safe. It may not be feasible to visit the dentist or the doctor in person based on sudden spikes in cases. Today it is safe, but what about tomorrow or next week?
Your dentist in Humble, TX wants you to be safe! When public health allows, we want to see you in our dental office. If the situation changes, we want you to be armed with the best information to keep your smile bright.
What to Avoid for a Brighter Smile
It may be tempting to sip wine in the evenings, but red wine is a big culprit when it comes to tooth stains. If you decide to indulge, we recommend brushing and rinsing afterward.
For many of us, coffee and tea are the go-to throughout the day, especially in the morning. Unfortunately, coffee is another tooth-staining beverage. Try limiting your intake or adding an additional brushing and rinsing session to your at-home routine.
When it comes to darkening the shade of your teeth, bright or red sauces are another offender.
Smoking is yet another tooth-staining habit, but smoking does more than darken your teeth. This habit has also been linked to lung disease, heart disease, and several types of cancer, including oral cancer. It also puts you at an increased risk for periodontal disease, which can lead to tooth loss and other systemic health problems. When it comes to smoking and your health, vaping is not a safer alternative!
