Smiling is a great way to show people confidence and alertness, so receiving the right dental care can be as important to maintaining one's appearance as getting a clean shave or picking the right makeup.
White smiles are said to be healthy smiles and there are various measures people can take to help their teeth keep shining. Most people already know that liquids such as coffee and red wine can stain teeth, but what few are aware of is that even white wine can leave its mark.
A study led by Cristina Dobrescu of the New York University College of Dentistry revealed that the acid content of white wine is what causes it to stain teeth. Certain teas can do the same too, according to Dobrescu's research.
To reverse the effects of the acids found in various beverages, people can use teeth whitening strips, which are sold at pharmacies all over the U.S.
The American Dental Association (ADA) says that tooth whitening is only one of several ways to renew a smile's appearance. The ADA does warn, however, that certain procedures such as tooth bonding and enamel shaping might come with fees.
