Tips for Keeping Your Teeth White

Woman brushing teethBrush your teeth after every meal and snack. This remains the most effective way to prevent tooth staining. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush and quality toothpaste, brush your teeth in all directions for at least two minutes if you are using a manual toothbrush, one for electric, to remove surface stains before they have time to set.

Is Activated Charcoal Safe for Teeth?

You may have recently seen popular YouTubers and DIY “health experts” demonstrating the amazing tooth whitening power of activated charcoal. The instructions are simple: place activated charcoal on a toothbrush and brush in small circles before rinsing. It works, too. In some instances, teeth can become visibly whiter after just one treatment.

Here’s the rub: activated charcoal is not actually safe for your teeth. In fact, it’s downright unsafe.

Holiday Teeth Whitening

If your teeth look dingy, yellowed, or stained, they can make you feel self-conscious, less confident, and unwilling to smile. Fortunately, these issues can easily be dealt with long before this year’s holiday parties. All they require is a call to NYC Smile Design to schedule a teeth whitening treatment.
