Building a better smile begins with improving your oral health care. Not only should you be brushing and flossing on a daily basis, but you should be analyzing all aspects of your day-to-day life including your diet and everyday lifestyle habits to determine which activities and products should be eliminated from your life. At the very least, you should exercise caution with any potential risk factors to your smile.

Never chew on inedible products. This is because your teeth are only designed for eating and trying to chew on products such as pencils, pens, pen caps, or even your nails, can severely damage your teeth. Not only can it lead to microscopic fractures, but it can also cause extreme chipping and some cases even knock teeth out completely.

Are you aware of the risk factors associated with hazards in your diet in relation to stains and discolorations? Numerous products you consume, especially drinks, can easily stain your teeth. This includes coffee and red wine. Furthermore, products like red wine contain pigments called chromogen and tannins which allow the color of the wine to naturally stick to your teeth. If any staining should occur to your teeth, teeth whitening treatment systems administered by your dentist can be effective for eradicating them.
