Models are known for having pearly white teeth, but even models need some help sustaining this white-ness. Here at Luxe Models we would know.
The summer is a season for laughing in the sun with your friends, for gossiping whilst sat in the park and for most importantly smiling. As we get older no matter how much we look after our teeth they start to become darker in shade for numerous reasons. Follow these top three tips in order to keep your teeth in tip-top condition:
- Avoid certain foods and drinks. Obviously, avoiding sugary drinks are a given as they are already incredibly bad for your teeth. However, certain foods and drinks such as coffee, coke or foods with heavy staining properties such as soy sauce, are even worse for altering the shade of your teeth. If these food or drinks can’t be avoided, consume them in moderation and brush your teeth afterwards
- Don’t brush too hard. People seem to think brushing as hard as possible will remove all the plaque and do a better job at cleaning the teeth. However, plaque is actually really easy to remove due to it being soft, the only time it’s hard to remove is once it has turned hard, which will then require a professional dental cleaning to remove it.
- Use whitening tooth pastes. Although there are many people who are sceptical about whether these make any difference, you can pick them up for less than three pound so it’s worth giving them a go.
If none of the above tips help and you consider getting them professionally whitened make sure you seek the help of a registered dentist, dental hygienist or dental therapist.
