Quick Fixes for Your Smile
You probably already use whitening toothpaste, or your teeth would look far worse than they do. If you haven't quit smoking do that now. Aside from the fact that you will smell better, you won’t continuously stain your teeth. Nicotine stains are one of the hardest to get out of your teeth. Watch how much coffee and red wine you drink too. These also stain your teeth.
The next thing you should do is schedule a teeth cleaning. Yes, you brush regularly, but your dentist has tools that can remove plaque and tartar that your toothbrush can’t get to. And if you think it will take up too much time forget about it. Teeth cleaning takes less than an hour, and you will be surprised at the difference it makes.
The last quick fix is to come in for a teeth whitening session. Having your teeth whitened by the dentist is far more effective than the over-the-counter kits you can buy. Aside from the fact that the dentist can use more powerful whiteners than the kits, the kits can take several weeks before you see a noticeable difference. Your dentist can do that in one visit.
