A healthy smile has to do with a lot more than having bright, white teeth. It has more to do with having teeth that are strong and functional.


When it comes to your health, prevention is always better than cure, but it is important to keep in mind that a healthy smile doesn't simply happen. In fact, it takes a lot of effort and consistency to achieve a healthy smile. Here's a cheat sheet of 9 easy and effective ways you can achieve a brighter, whiter and healthier smile.

9 Tips To Maintaining A Healthy And Beautiful Smile

  1. Make sure you are using an effective, ADA-approved toothbrush that will get you the results you need.
  2. Brush your teeth two times a day for a minimum of 2 minutes each time.
  3. Flossing after each meal is just as important as brushing daily. It prevents the formation of plaque, which can't be done by brushing alone.
  4. Protect your teeth from damage during high impact activities.
  5. Avoid smoking.
  6. Avoid having food and beverages that contain a lot of starch and sugar.
  7. Steer away from piercings that put you at risk of getting a chipped tooth, infection or nerve damage. These include: cheek, tongue lip or teeth piercings
  8. Reduce your intake of foods that discolour the teeth - coffee, wine etc.
  9. Lastly, visit your dentist regularly for a routine exam and teeth cleaning to make sure you get ahead of any dental issue you may have.
