HOW TO: GET HEALTHY WHITE TEETH! MY DENTAL HYGIENE ROUTINE AND TEETH FAQ!

Hey girls,
I often get asked questions about my teeth so I thought I would share with you all my dental hygiene routine as well as answer some frequently asked teeth questions.
STEP 1
BRUSH
I use Pearl Drops, Beauty Pearls Toothpaste to brush my teeth. This is a gradual brightening toothpaste that I use to help maintain white teeth. I brush with a soft bristle toothbrush because I find that it is most gentle on my teeth. 

STEP 2
ORABRUSH
An important step in my dental routine is cleaning my tongue with the Orabrush and tongue foam. This is one of those hyped products which are actually effective in what they aim they do! I feel so much cleaner after completing this step.  

STEP 3
FLOSS  
I use White Glo Dental Floss Toothpicks to floss in between my teeth, removing food that wasn't already removed through brushing and plague. Sometimes I'm lazy and skip this step but it is really important so I try to force myself most of the time.  

AVOID
MOUTH WASH
Listerine not only tastes bad for you but it is! The alcohols contained in Listerine cause a horrible drying effect in the mouth that causes cells to die and increases the probability of oral cancer. 
STAINING
Drinks like coffee, alcohol and red wine can all ruin pearly whites and apart from all of the other detrimental health effects smoking has...your teeth are also seriously being put at risk if that's something you like to do.

Have you had braces?
Nope, never had braces. 
 
Have you had your teeth whitened?
I haven't but I do use a whitening toothpaste. 

What lipsticks can make your teeth look whiter?
Any dark colours so a rich scarlet, deep pink or bright crimson can really brighten up your smile.

What do you do when you go to the dentist?
I just have a clean and check up. I have never had a filling or my tonsils or a tooth out. If you brush and floss everyday your teeth should be fine. 

Thanks for reading, I hope this answered a question if you were wondering and helped you in creating your own Dental Hygiene Routine.

I really want natural looking white teeth, some of the products make your teeth seem too white!

Congratulations! I follow a similar regimen and have never had a cavity or filling in my adult teeth.

But good dental habits may not get all the credit. I'm not sure what's become of this, but a few years ago it made the news that researchers found that some people have a substantially reduced risk of tooth decay simply because certain types of bacteria are not present in their mouths.

Thanks for the tips, Jordy! I must say, you have a wonderful smile. Well, I don’t think there’s a secret in having a perfect set of teeth. All one has to do is follow the basic oral regimen while using reliable and effective products, and going to their dentist for regular dental checkups. Doing so will definitely keep their pearly whites looking healthy and bright. Have a nice day!
