DIY Remedies

Schedule a Professional Clean: Superficial staining from food and drinks such as tea, coffee or red win can often be removed with a professional clean. The best treatment you can get is by a professional, so a book an appointment. The dentist will go through all your options and examine the health of your teeth.

Choose Teeth-Friendly Snacks: Eating crunchy fruits and vegetables such as carrots, apples and celery will stimulate the production of salvia, which in turn helps to wash away any plaque. Raw fruits and vegetables are a natural abrasive that can help to keep teeth clean. Coffee, tea, soda and red wine are all very acidic, which make your tooth enamel softer and more susceptible to staining. Berries and food with bright artificial colouring are also known to stain over time. Consume them in moderation and brush your teeth as soon as possible after consuming them, even if that means keeping a toothbrush and toothpaste at work.

Make Your Lipstick Your Friend: Choose a shade that works with your skin tone. Shades like cherry red, wine, berry, plum or rosy pink are your best bets. Blue and pink-based undertones will help hide yellow stains in your teeth and it’s best to stay away from something too dark or too red.

Professional Help

Teeth Whitening: It’s best to see a professional if you want to achieve the best results for your big day. However, don’t leave it too close to the date of your wedding. The whitening process generally takes at least two weeks, depending on your desired results, so it’s important not to try to cram it in!

Veneers: If you’re concerned with aesthetics of your teeth, more so than just the colour, you may want to consider porcelain veneers. They are thin porcelain facings for your teeth that can rejuvenate your entire smile.

Orthodontics: In the case of teeth crowding, the best solution is orthodontic treatment. With options such as Invisalign, gone are the days of having bulky, unsightly metal braces. Allow at least one year prior to the big day.
