White-TKeeping Teeth White and Healthy: Few Things to Know : Having a perfect set of pearly whites requires a lot of care and attention. For many people, visiting the dentist every six months means taking good care of one’s health.  However, oral care means much more than visiting the dentist after every six months. You should be actively involved in keeping your teeth healthy and glowing at all times.

White-TeethWatch Your Drinks: Anything that stains a white shirt — like coffee, tea, or cola — can also stain your teeth. If you drink gallons of the stuff every day, try to cut back. And, rinse your mouth with water when you’re finished drinking. Do you like wine? Red wine can stain your teeth, but white wine can wear away enamel, causing long-term damage. Between every sip or two, swish water in your mouth for a few seconds.

White-teeth Makeup Tips for Whiter Teeth: Brighten your smile with easy makeup tips. Slick on a lipstick or gloss in a shade like cherry red, wine, berry, plum, or rosy pink. The blue-based or pink-based undertones will minimize any yellowish tones in your teeth. Try a lip-plumping formula for a fuller pout. Ingredients like cinnamon and mint boost blood flow to the lips. A self-tanner will make the whites of your teeth pop, and heighten the whites of your eyes, too!
White-TeethDo-It-Yourself Whitening Recipe: You can whip up some whitener with this do-it-yourself recipe. Mix one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of baking soda. Add just enough water to make a paste. Use this instead of your toothpaste once or twice a week. It won’t get rid of dark stains or work like a dental whitening experience, but it may add a little gleam to teeth that are losing their luster.

White-TeethThe Emotional Upside of Smiling: The benefits of smiling are enough to make you, well, smile. Seeing a smile can give people the same feel-good boost of eating 2,000 chocolate bars. Turn the corners of your mouth up into a grin when you’re stressed and you’ll feel calmer. Smiling lowers blood pressure and releases the body’s natural painkillers. When you smile, people like and trust you more. They also think you’re younger than you are.

White-TeethThe Whiter-Teeth Diet: Want a better smile? Start in the kitchen. Crunchy fruits and vegetables like celery, carrots, and apples are natural teeth whiteners. They trigger your mouth to make saliva, which washes away food particles so they can’t stain teeth. Strawberries have an enzyme that acts like natural bleach. Broccoli has minerals that form a film on teeth so pigments from other foods won’t stain them.

White-TeethAntioxidants are disease-fighting compounds. Scientists believe these compounds help prevent and repair oxidation damage that happens during normal cell activity. Apples are also full of a fibre called pectin—a medium-sized apple contains about 4 grams of fibre. Pectin is classed as a soluble, fermentable and viscous fibre, a combination that gives it a huge list of health benefits.

AppleYou may have heard that eating apples can help you cut back on calories. According to one study, participants who chomped on this crispy fruit 15 minutes before a meal consumed almost 200 fewer calories than those who didn’t. Since I often go straight home for dinner after my post-work gym session, I’ve started eating an apple as my post-workout snack. It’s a healthy food — one medium apple delivers 10 percent of your daily fiber intake — that satisfies my immediate after-exercise craving and ensures I’m not starving by the time I sit down for supper. Just be sure to keep the skin on for even more nutrients. What’s your post-workout, pre-dinner snack?
