Follow advice from Bluewater Dentist to make sure your smile is bright for Valentine’s Day!

Watch What You Eat and Drink

The most common way teeth become stained is by eating and drinking. And so, in the run-up your special plans, make sure you avoid;

  • Tea and Coffee (especially black coffee)
  • Carbonated Drinks
  • Tomato based sauces
  • Blueberries
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Beetroot

Stick to fresh foods and drinking water if you are concerned about the effects food and drink have on teeth staining!

Quit Smoking

If you’re serious about improving the look and health of your teeth in time for the 14th of February, quit smoking! Tobacco easily absorbs into the pores of your teeth which causes discolouration. And e-cigarettes are no better! They also can easily stain your teeth. If you have been smoking for a number of years, the most effective way you can go about whitening your teeth is by seeking professional help. At Bluewater we offer Pola whitening treatment, which is a professional mostly at home whitening treatment.

Flossing and Brushing

Of course one of the most effective ways to keep teeth white is by flossing and brushing. Don’t underestimate the value and benefits of keeping up a regular and precise dental care routine! Whether you improve this in the run-up to Valentine’s Day or not, make sure you prioritise a good level of dental hygiene all year round.
