Mask Off, Smile On
After nearly 2 years of covering your smile with a mask, your pearly whites might be lacking luster. Luckily for you, here are three tips to getting the best post-pandemic smile.
1: Get your dental hygiene back on track
Check in on your toothbrush, pull out your floss, and dial in the best toothpaste. Now is the time to get serious about your oral care routine.
The science is in, manual tooth brushes are out. For the healthiest gums, cleanest teeth, and brightest smile you need to be brushing at least twice a day with a sonic toothbrush. The powerful oscillations remove tartar, plaque, and stains before they become problems.
Flossing is key to cavity prevention. Floss at least once a day, get up around each tooth under the gums to prevent build up for healthy smile and overall health.
Your toothpaste should be working for you. Use a fluoride toothpaste with ingredients that benefit your teeth and oral hygiene goals.
2: Whitening strips.
After a year of coffee, wine, tea, and other top tooth staining foods, your chompers might need a bit of help in the whitening department. Earlier this year, we compiled a list of the top whitening solutions available [link whitening universe blog post]. We’re partial to Ollie white strips.
Whiten on your schedule.
3: Visit your dentist
If you, like millions of Americans avoided the dentist during 2020 and 2021, now is the time to go back. Find a good dentist and stop any dental issues in their tracks before they become lifelong health problems.
