Want a killer smile? Of course you do. So follow this pro advice.If you've gone to the dentist and walked out of their cavity-free, then you know what success tastes like. If you're on the other end of the spectrum and find yourself having issues with your pearly (possibly not-so-) whites (I've been there, you're not alone), then the advice below will be super helpful. Who knows? It might even change your (dental) life.
1. They see their dentist regularly for cleanings or checkups.
2. They own an electric toothbrush.
3. They floss daily.
Dr. Apa also recommends opting for a super-gentle, tape-like floss, like Glide, rather than a wax-coated string, which can shred and get stuck in your teeth as you're flossing.
4. They get orthodontia.
5. They wear their retainers.
6. They bleach their teeth every three months.
Instead, Dr. Apa recommends doing maintenance on your teeth every three months, whitening them with an at-home kit like the one he just came out with called Apa White Duo or by using Crest Whitestrips. Note: If you do decide to get an in-office bleaching first, you'll want to do maintenance every six months rather than every three.
