Some people’s teeth are whiter than others, but it’s safe to say that most of us San Jose residents want our teeth to be pearly white! If you are one of those people, then Wesley P. Yemoto DDS can help you achieve that unforgettable smile you deserve.
Here are some tips on teeth whitening and what we can do for you!
Don’t Forget to Brush
The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many individuals still miss this practice. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent dental caries. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume (drinks, food, etc.) but when we brush our teeth, it decreases the damage.
After brushing teeth, another tip is using a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prohibits it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.
Sometimes the discoloration is too severe to be reversed by over-the-counter remedies. That’s why Wes Yemoto DDS offers professional teeth whitening. We provide in-office teeth whitening and take home teeth bleaching kits. Each of these techniques provide an effective solution. We also provide general dentistry.
