Hollywood may have made it trendy but white teeth have practically become a social symbol for dental health.
Dr Jeff Golub-Evans, dentist to some famous faces, tells the Capital Hometown Annapolis that its best to avoid brightly colored mouthwashes in order to try to keep teeth white.
"[T]hose are the most insidious," he says of the colored rinses, explaining to the news provider that "the colorant, just like red wine, is what's left on your teeth."
The American Association of Dentists recommends adults use in-office bleaching treatments with their dentist, consider in-home bleaching or select a whitening toothpaste. Most importantly, those who want to try whitening procedures should first speak with their dentists.
For more extreme cases, individuals can choose porcelain veneer caps to cover unsightly teeth or even implants for missing teeth as one dentist in Bergen County, New Jersey.
Rather than give his patients false teeth, Dr Sultan Sherzoy has chosen to use dental implants which both look and feel more natural than dentures.
