There is nothing more attractive in a man than being well groomed. This also includes having white, strong teeth. Bleaching is not the best option; as everyone knows the process can be rather painful. Luckily, there are many things a man can do to have whiter teeth without breaking the bank or their enamel. Here are a number of tricks you can embrace to ban the yellow shade from your mouth. In the end it’s all about keeping your teeth clean and prevents plaque, which gives them the yellow discoloration and stains.

Switch to color-correcting toothpaste

You can begin your journey towards whiter teeth by changing your toothpaste with a color-correcting one. According to professionals from 505 Dental Associates clinic of dental medicine, these toothpastes are healthy, free of erosive agents which might damage your teeth. A purple toothpaste works on the same principle as purple shampoos for blonde hair: they add purple pigment on your teeth, to counteract the yellow shade. Color-correcting toothpaste can be a great alternative to bleaching, especially since it doesn’t damage your teeth. Just watch out to rinse your mouth really well, as your mouth can be stained temporarily. Also, the moment you stop using the toothpaste, the whitening effect fades out, because the purple deposits go away. Using color-correcting toothpaste gives you whiter teeth right after you brush: with everything you put in your mouth the shade turns back to your teeth shade. The good news about the color-correcting paste is that it doesn’t stain.

A better toothbrush

When it comes to brushing your teeth there are many elements which count, from the toothpaste to the toothbrush. Changing your regular toothbrush with a silicone one can work wonders on your teeth, when it comes to their health. A silicone brush is gentler on your gums, but harbors less bacteria, which means it’s more effective in cleaning the surface of your teeth. Most silicone brushes are electrical, which is an added bonus.

Floss, floss, floss

Dentists insist on flossing for a reason and you should listen to them. Clean teeth are whiter teeth and flossing helps you keep your mouth as clean as possible. There are many devices you can use, apart from regular flossing string. There are gadgets which use air or water to clean your teeth to perfection and there is always the option to visit the dentist for this job.

Add mouthwash

Mouthwash has the same effect as flossing: it cleans your mouth, killing all the bacteria (or as much as possible) and it gives you a fresh breathe. A complete oral hygiene routine is going to keep your teeth plaque free, which also means they will be whiter.

Baking soda

Apart from plaque, there are foods which can stain your teeth enamel. Brushing with the humble baking soda can remove the stains, making them whiter. Baking soda is a natural mild abrasive agent which can scrub away plaque, as well as killing bacteria. Mixing baking soda in your toothpaste can help you get whiter teeth in time, keeping your teeth stain-free.

All in one brush your teeth and make sure to pay attention to your dental hygiene routine in order to keep your teeth strong, healthy and sparkling white.
