Neighbourhood Health Desk: As we age, our teeth lose their whiteness. Apparently, the light can’t pass through our teeth the way it once could, and as a result, it causes yellow-looking teeth.

But there had to be something that could be done, and with a little help from
books, and the Net in general, we found a few tricks that can help you keep
your teeth the whitest they can be. Unless you want to visit the dentist for a
bleaching treatment, there are a few tricks you can do at home.

  • Choose lipsticks that contain blue tones instead of yellow (for obvious
    reasons).
  • Watch the foods and beverages that you eat and drink. They will stain
    your teeth. Apparently, if you can drink your beverages with a straw,
    less staining can take place. So you know what to do with that next
    glass of drink.
  • Visit your dentist for regular cleaning and polishing. Your teeth do look
    nicer after a visit, so don’t put it off.
  • Get into the habit of using floss every day. It is more important than
    you might realize. As a matter of fact, it might be a good idea to have
    floss packs in different rooms so that they are handy where ever you
    are.
  • Toss your toothbrush the minute it looks frayed.
  • If you are unsure about the right toothpaste for you, ask your dentist
    for a recommendation. He will be very happy to suggest something.
  • Home whitening.. don’t use baking soda for stain removal more than
    once a week. Using more often could remove the enamel from your
    teeth.
