One of the most appealing things about your favorite stars on the big screen is their smiles: beautiful, straight pearly whites that seem to be completely effortless and natural. We know the work that goes into achieving a smile like that and we also know that anyone can work towards a celebrity smile of their very own by paying careful attention to daily dental hygiene. Here are some things to remember if you want to smile like the stars.
The more often you get your teeth cared for professionally, the less likely you will be to experience a serious buildup of plaque and bacteria, which is what leads to discoloration. Schedule twice yearly cleanings at your dentist, or more if your teeth are in need of special care or procedures.
Make it your personal goal to brush at least twice a day, floss once a day and rinse with mouthwash after all meals, drinks and snacks. These good habits will prevent your teeth from accumulating bacteria after each time you eat.
Certain foods and drinks have the ability to improve your oral health and whiten your teeth over time, such as strawberries, watermelon and some hard cheeses. However, substances like chocolate, alcohol, coffee and other dark liquids can stain your teeth if you consume them on a regular basis.
