3 Ways to Keep Your Teeth White

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. A friendly smile can brighten anyone’s day, whether it’s a familiar face at the grocery store or a stranger passing by on the street. Yet, many people struggle with the confidence in their smile because of discoloration. Thankfully, your dental professionals from Dobson Ranch Dental Care are here to help! Our mission is to help you feel radiant and confident when cracking a smile by offering teeth whitening services. Plus, here are our top three tips for keeping your teeth white. 


3 Ways to Keep Your Teeth White

1. Use Baking Soda

You’ve probably seen other articles on keeping your teeth white, and you’ve probably noticed that they all mention baking soda. That’s because it works! This trick has been around for decades, and it is an ingredient in many toothpaste brands. While it doesn’t hurt to get toothpaste with baking soda incorporated into it, you’ll probably notice more of a change if you use baking soda directly. The gritty texture alone is enough to scrub away years of stains, while also killing bad breath germs. Still, this isn’t a one-and-done solution, and you’ll have to use this method regularly to keep your teeth the shade of white you desire.


2. Try At-Home Whitening Strips

If you’re a DIY person, then you’ll probably enjoy trying some at-home whitening strip solutions. Most major toothpaste brands make whitening strips, which are thought to be a more cost-effective solution for people wanting that pearly-white glow. If you’re looking for something that you don’t have to regularly use, like baking soda, this may be a trick that’s right for you. However, note that most people’s teeth will return to a yellowish color after a year if they don’t continue to use the treatments regularly. If your teeth are heavily stained, you may not even notice a dramatic change, which can be frustrating for some people.


3. Professional Whitening

Here at Dobson Dental, our team believes in using non-abrasive whitening techniques. Our Boost Whitening System is a one-session treatment that takes less than two hours. Many people ask if our whitening methods are safe and effective, to which we say yes! One of the perks of using the Boost Whitening System is that you’ll experience a pleasant, pain-free teeth whitening session. The results are long-lasting, so you don’t have to worry about touch-ups or to come back for another treatment. Generally, people leave with a smile that is six to eight shades whiter than when they arrived.
