How can I keep my teeth whiter?

professional teeth whitening | new orleans laTeeth Whitening in New Orleans

At Downtown Dental, our patients often ask us how they can improve their at-home dental care and keep their teeth whiter. All of our teeth will naturally darken as we age, but there is still plenty we can do to help keep them as white as possible. 

If you are struggling to keep your pearly whites white, one of the easiest adjustments you can make is to minimize or avoid your intake of the following:

  • Tobacco products
  • Dark fruits such as berries
  • Deep-colored sauces like soy sauce and red pasta sauce
  • Coffee
  • Wine
  • Dark sodas like cola and root beer
  • Beets

If you do regularly consume these products, make sure to drink plenty of water. You can also try eating leafy greens like spinach and kale immediately before or crispy root vegetables like carrots immediately after consuming these foods to help protect your teeth from staining. 

It is also important to brush and floss regularly to keep your teeth white. Daily brushing and flossing, especially 30 to 60 minutes after meals, can help protect your teeth by washing away bacteria and preventing stains before they happen.
