It would be safe to say that when you ask someone if they would prefer white teeth over stained teeth, they are going to tell you they want their teeth white. Having a white smile is a great thing that a lot of people strive for. It makes sense if you think about it. We are constantly being bombarded with advertisements and commercials about teeth whitening gum or toothpaste.
As you can see in the below graph from Smart Girl, http://www.smartgirl.org/reports/5193229.html, you can see there are a substantial number of people who are not comfortable with how they look. Part of this is why so many people do anything and everything they can in order to help make themselves look better.
One way that you can help to improve the way that you look and feel about yourself would be to have a whiter smile. There are some things that you can do in order to help whiten your teeth as well as help them to stay white for a longer period of time. The things you can do are:
Avoid drinks that can stain your teeth like coffee, tea, and red wine. You should even stay away from dark sodas. If you do insist on drinking these things, try to drink from a straw. The use of a straw will help the liquid to bypass your front teeth.
Brush and rinse often, especially if you just drank a dark beverage. This will help get the stains off of your teeth before they have time to sink in.
Partake in good oral hygiene practices. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and floss at least once a day to help remove plaque.
If you have kept trying to do everything that you can, but you are not getting the results you want, then you can go to your dentist to have a teeth whitening procedure done.
