With National Smile Month kicking off from 20 May to 20 June, there are many things you can do to make your smile better. You can get porcelain veneers to get that perfect smile if you want, but there are a few simple things you can do to make your teeth look their best. Now is a great time to be thinking of ways to make your smile look whiter. Of course there is always the option to go to the dentist for a teeth cleaning or for teeth bleaching, but if you can avoid that by doing a few simple things, you can save yourself the time and money of going to the dentist. Here are a couple of tips to help those pearly whites look their whitest. 1. Swish with water after drinking a dark liquid When you drink a dark liquid, take a little time to swish your mouth with water. Water can prevent your teeth from looking dingy which can happen over time when a person repeatedly drinks dark liquids. If you are a big fan of dark liquids like soda, dark juices, coffee, or even wine, make sure to take this extra step to decrease the appearance of darkening of the teeth. 2. Wear lipstick that has a hint of blue Ladies, if you want to use a makeup trick to make your teeth look whiter, use a lipstick that has just a hint of blue in it. This will make your teeth look whiter by offsetting any yellow colouration of the teeth. These are just a couple of things you can do to help your teeth look whiter not only for National Smile Month, but anytime. You might be surprised at the difference these tips can make for your smile.
