And they are very easy!
1. Clean, polish, polish
It goes without saying, but: a beautiful, healthy and white teeth begins with proper brushing and cleaning of your teeth. Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes. Preferably electric. It is especially important to brush your teeth before bedtime. (How tempting it is to dive right into your bed. #Guilty ) When you sleep you make less saliva, while saliva cleans your mouth. If you skip brushing in the evening, you create a breeding ground for all the bacteria of the day. Y ikes!
In addition, regularly use a mouthwash and try to floss as often as possible to remove any leftovers between your teeth. Hello white teeth !
