Brush Gently For A Brighter Smile

cosmetic dentistry Comstock Park

Everyone wants nice, pearly white teeth, and a common misconception is that, if you want to lighten them, you should scrub them really hard. As we explain in this post from Eric Hull DDS Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Comstock Park MI, you should always brush gently to maintain healthy gums!

If you brush too hard, you might be at risk for gum recession, which is when your gum line exposes more of your teeth. The best home remedy for dull teeth is to brush longer, not harder! The key, though, is to use a very light touch. Gently brush your teeth in a slow, circular motion for about five minutes.

Methodically go over each tooth surface. Don’t rush it and don’t scrub too hard. Use a toothpaste with fluoride. That way, you clean off all recent food particles and the fluoride helps your enamel re-harden.
