Your teeth are often the things that others notice first—but when it comes to grooming, for one reason or another—get taken care of last. Just think about how much money and time you dedicate to skincare, fragrance, and hair products, and compare the costs to your daily dental routine. Embarrassing, right?
Appearances can be deceiving.
White teeth aren’t necessarily healthy teeth, A lot of great over-the-counter products can actually mask real problems, and men just don’t go to the dentist enough. To prevent problems before they start, schedule routine visits to your dentist, and stay on top of them. If you miss an appointment, reschedule immediately. Any dentist will warn you that serious dental issues begin gradually, and by the time you notice some unpleasant side effects, reversing or repairing the damage will cost you both money and physical discomfort.
Watch (what you put in) your mouth.
As you may already know, many lifestyle and dietary choices can take a toll on your pearly whites. Some of the biggest culprits in staining your teeth are red wine, coffee, and cigarette smoke. But whatever your vices or pleasures, don’t stop living your life, just let your dentist take care of your teeth. If you’re looking for a less dulling alternative to red wine, white wine, champagne, and clear liquors are better options.
Brush smarter, not harder.
Invest in a quality sonic toothbrush, it provides error-proof brushing. Most guys don’t know how to properly brush their teeth, and electric toothbrushes make brushing a piece of cake, in addition to doing a much better job than manual brushing. For toothpaste, Colgate Optic White gives you an extreme minty-clean feeling white whitening your teeth as well, but if your teeth require an extra whitening boost, ask your dentist for an at-home bleaching system.
