4 Ways To Brighten Your Smile

Try teeth whitening. Dr. Blaylock uses ZOOM, a high-quality teeth whitening system that can brighten your teeth at least six to ten shades. Dr. Blaylock also offers at home teeth whitening kits for your convenience. For at home teeth whitening kits, patients will still need to visit or Durham dentist office to get properly fitted for their whitening trays.At your consultation, Dr. Blaylock will perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth to determine which system is best for you.

Quit smoking. Smoking can have detrimental effects on your teeth and your overall health. Tobacco has been linked to staining teeth and causing bad breath. Try taking the necessary steps to quit smoking and get your oral health back on track.

Brush and floss at least twice a day. You would be surprised at the number of patients who only brush and floss once a day. Developing a proper oral hygiene routine can help keep your teeth healthy and prevent future dental issues like cavities and tooth decay. If you aren’t sure if you’re using the right products or you’re not sure if your brushing or flossing correctly, feel free to ask Dr. Blaylock. Dr. Blaylock is a dedicated dentist committed to helping you improve your smile.

Try to avoid food and drinks that are bad for your teeth.
Certain kinds of food and drinks stain or weaken the tooth enamel over time. Tea, red wine, citrus fruits, and sugary foods are known to stain your teeth over time. Certain stains are harder to whiten than other, so it is important to talk to an experienced dentist like Dr. Blaylock to help develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
