Keeping your teeth white can be quite a hard feat. Why? This is because every day people eat foods that cause decay to the teeth and people can lose the sparkly whiteness that once existed. Most foods are really bad for teeth but there are some especially bad. Haribo for example is made up of gelatine and sugar and are some of the worst substances you can eat. However, when foods are bad they tend to be nice so one bag no and then is allowed!
It is not just food that is bad for the teeth. Drinks can also be very bad too. Coffee can cause discoloring and quickly and make them yellow. People in the UK tend to drink a lot of coffee as it is very important to stay active and alert so you are always on the ball for work. Alcohol too can damage teeth and people in the UK also tend to drink a lot of alcohol.
To counter the harmful substances people consume, people can brush their teeth regularly. People are suppose to brush twice a day, but in reality this doesn't always happen. Furthermore, people are also suppose to brush their teeth for three minutes but again this rarely happens. This is mainly because people do not know how long three minutes actually is. Instead they think two minutes may be three, or possibly even less. Realistically, the only way to brush your teeth for three minutes is to use a stopwatch or a clock with a second hand. This would ensure brushing for 3 whole minutes.
Brushing your teeth will keep your them looking fresh but they will not get the white back. The only way to do this is to use a teeth whitening service or laser teeth whitening. This is available in the UK and can really make your teeth sparkle. This is the only real way to keep your them looking white.
