Focusing On Your Whole Body Health

snow white teethWhen the first snowflakes fall, everything becomes blanketed under a snow-white covering. It’s only after time passes and the snow melts when plowed piles start to look grimy and muddy. Your teeth are no different. Over time, wear and tear causes discoloration and a drab smile. My Yorktown Heights dental office is here to give some practical words of advice to keep your smile bright!


Rethink Your Food and Drink

Some of our favorite foods and beverages are actually to blame for causing stains. Here’s a short list of food and beverage offenders:

  • Red wine
  • Soda
  • Berry juices
  • Coffee and black tea
  • Sauce and gravy

Try using a straw with stain-inducing drinks. Swallow foods quickly, leaving less time to linger, to minimize the stain power.


The Bright White Fight

Always check with your Yorktown Heights dentist before starting any whitening procedures. Making sure you’re brushing with a proper toothpaste is a good way to fight for a bright smile. Check the label for the American Dental Association seal of approval. Porcelain veneers are also another option for a snow-white smile.


Brushing is Always Best

Sometimes you may think your dental team sounds like a broken record, but we can’t stress enough how important it is to brush and floss regularly. This holds true for stain fighting too. Twice daily brushing, after you wake up in the morning and before you turn in at night, is key for excellent oral health and deterring stains.


No matter what kind of weather, we’re always ready to see your bright smile in my dental office in Yorktown Heights. Call or stop in to schedule a consultation. Together let’s ensure your smile is snow white in winter and beyond!

We’re always happy to welcome new neighbors and patients from Yorktown Heights, Putnam Valley, Mahopac, Cortland, Croton, and Somers.

"I can’t thank Dr. Lerner and his staff enough, notably his assistant Nicole for expertly handling my mercury filling removals.I had it done in 2 phases and they took very good care of me on both occasions. The whole office is very pleasant, so professional and I look forward to my visits. On this most recent cleaning appointment, Linda did my cleaning. She was gentle and thorough. Highly recommend."

"Excellent experience during my initial consultation. The most complete examination I have ever had by a dentist, including full body muscle testing. This testing uncovered major alignment issues with my jaw which has been causing a lifetime of misalignment throughout the rest of my body. Dr. Lerner and his staff are outside the box thinkers and I am very happy I have found them."
