While advertisements often shout their praise for supermarket-based products such as whitening toothpaste or strips, there is only one piece of advice you should keep in mind: to have a sparkling white smile, you need to go to those who know teeth best – dentists.
Pitt Street Dental Centre is a well-known dental clinic in Sydney. Whether their clients are celebrities or people like you and me, they pride themselves on top-notch care, even offering services such as emergency dental and same day appointments for unexpected issues.
If you’re dreaming of whiter teeth, book in for a quick, safe and painless teeth whitening session in their Sydney clinic. Alternatively, they can provide you with what you require to do this at home safely, with superior results.
All of the materials used by the centre have been made in Australia too, so unlike many other dental surgeries, they’re not working with imported goods. Plus, the centre also ensures that each of their products are matched to perfectly suit their patients’ teeth – no noticeable and unsightly tooth fillings here!
The team have put together some tips to help you maintain your smile for longer after your appointment.
Strawberries: They contain malic acid which works to naturally remove surface tooth discolouration.
Water: It reduces the acidity in your mouth, resulting in less damage to your enamel. Swishing water around your mouth in between glasses of red wine, coffee or after eating dark berries may also work to prevent discolouration.
Milk and yoghurt: Often referred to as dairy superfoods, their high calcium content will strengthen your teeth and keep your enamel healthier and whiter.
Broccoli: Unlike other vegetables it won’t stay stuck to your teeth, resulting in less chance of surface stains. Plus, the florets work to give your teeth a little scrub.
Other fruit and vegetables such as carrots, celery, apples, and pears: They are high in water content which increases saliva production, disperses and washes away stain-causing bacteria.
Coffee: Coffee is one of the worst culprits when it comes to staining and darkening your teeth.
Black tea: While herbal teas are fairly safe for your teeth, unfortunately black tea, similarly to coffee, will cause unsightly stains on your teeth.
Dark berries such as blueberries and blackberries: Although healthy for you, the darker pigment of these berries does affect the whiteness of your teeth.
Red wine: Red wine is also another bad culprit when it comes to stained or lack-lustre teeth.
Chocolate: Even a much-loved chocolate bar can contribute to unsightly teeth stains over time.
When it comes to dentistry, Pitt Street Dental Centre really do have you covered.
Have you always wished your teeth were straighter? Another hugely popular cosmetic procedure at the clinic is Invisalign, a technology allowing you to have the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of braces.
A series of clear plastic aligners reposition your teeth into a straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile. The best bit? Unlike braces, the aligners can be removed when you want to eat or brush your teeth.
So if you’re in need of a whiter and brighter smile, or any of the other options listed in this post, I recommend that you take a look around the Pitt Street Dental Centre website for more information. You can also follow the centre on Facebook for updates.
