Although we know that those foods that are colorful tend to stain more teeth, the ability to do so is quite limited. It is evident that the infusions, coffee and snuff are habits that most upset the color of teeth and, therefore, are those that should be avoided if you want to have white teeth.

The most effective way of having white teeth is having a perfect oral hygiene. So after each meal, you need to brush with a brush and toothpaste according to the Bass technique. This technique involves brushing with the brush bristles 45 degrees toward the apex of the tooth, in the bottom of the groove, producing a vibration in the direction of horizontal movement.

Moreover, at least once a day, you should clean the teeth with dental floss or interdental brushes.

Teeth whitening

Basically, there are two teeth whitening techniques:

  • Ambulatory is making splints perfectly reproduced teeth that serve as a vehicle to deposit the whitening gel. The hours are indicated by the specialist placed Dentistry. The concentration of whitening gel is much less than the time we need to get the effect.
  • Clinic: it is the realization of whitening in the dental chair. To do so requires the use of a high concentration of bleaching gel, along with a high intensity ultraviolet lamp. The combination of both allows us to achieve a whitening effect in a very short time.
