If you have some discoloration schedule and appointment for a tooth whitening session. CDA offers two types of whitening. We offer in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening kits. Both options are very effective ways to whiten your teeth.
  • Freshen Up. Brushing and flossing are the key ingredients for good dental health. Try to always brush your teeth for at least two minutes and angle your toothbrush about 45 degrees to effectively remove plaque. Brushing your tongue will also help keep your breath nice and fresh.
  • Go sugar free. Reduce your intake of snacks and drinks with high sugar content. Constant snacking and sipping on soda, sports drinks and energy drinks can significantly raise your risk for cavities. A mouth full of untreated cavities can lead to more serious problems and a lot of pain.
  • Watch your mouth. Dry mouth increases plaque buildup. Chewing sugar-free gum and rinsing with an alcohol-free mouth wash helps increase saliva flow and reduce plaque build up. Schedule and appointment to determine what might be causing your dry mouth.
