The holidays are a wonderful time of friends, family, food, and fun.They are a time of parties and fabulous outfits, and of course, smiles.If youre dreaming of more than a white Christmas this holiday season, follow these tips for a whiter, brighter smile.
1) While cookies, cupcakes, and sweets are fabulous, they are super sugary and can wear on the enamel of your teeth.Sticking to fruits and veggies will keep your teeth stronger and keep your body healthier. Also, foods that require you to chew a lot act as a natural exfoliate and can help keep your teeth fresh in between brushings.
2) Frosty the Snowman may have enjoyed a corncob pipe, but that doesnt mean you should. Skip out on the cigarettes and New Years cigars to prevent teeth from yellowing.
3) No matter how late you sleep in from a night of soirees, do not skip out on brushing your teeth!In the same way that you take your makeup off before going to bed, make sure you brush so your face and smile will be bright in the morning!
4) As fun as holiday parties are, take some time to detox. Use home remedies like brushing with baking soda or swishing with water and hydrogen peroxide or use a home whitening kit. Dont forget the floss and mouthwash!
Enjoy your holiday and ring in 2014 with a beautiful, white and healthy smile! Don't forget to be mindful of colored drinks and sugary treats!
