4 Ways to keep your smile bright

September 14, 2018 | Blog

If you’re looking for ways to get a brighter smile, taking small steps is the way to start. Like the old saying goes, you’ve got to start somewhere. Here are a couple of tried and true methods for healthier teeth and gums – and a brighter smile.

Floss daily

Every dentist’s favorite line is that “you need to floss more.” But it’s probably true. According to Colgate, only 4 out of 10 Americans floss at least once a day, and almost 20% never floss. Be part of the 80% that floss and part of the 40% that floss daily. By flossing, you’re keeping up with your gum health. And if your gums are healthy, your teeth are healthy.

Brush two times a day

Brushing your teeth in the morning and at night is part of healthy dental care. Try brushing with a whitening toothpaste each. A whitening toothpaste can be a good place to start while you’re on a path to whiter teeth.

Maybe you’ve tried those two methods, but your smile is still lacking. If you’re looking into something more extensive for quicker results, here are a few options.

Teeth Whitening

The most common way to whiten teeth has always been the bleaching method. Teeth bleaching trays mold to your teeth to ensure that they reach all the way around and in between each tooth. Using the trays, people have seen results in as little as one use, although it may take a few more uses for some. For more information on tray whitening, go to gcdentalcare.com.


If you’re looking for a less generic approach to teeth whitening, try ZOOM! This is an in-office whitening treatment at Gulf Coast Dental that uses a light-activated gel on your teeth in just about an hour. What makes ZOOM! even better? You’ll get a take-home gel, plus instructions, to keep up your pearly white smile.

A smile says a lot about a person. Keep yours bright and don’t let it dull. Let Gulf Coast Dental help! Give us a call at (228) 832-3231 to set up your next appointment.
