Hi there, fellow denture owner! My name is Dr Fixodent, it’s really nice to meet you! In today’s session, I’m going to share with you some handy tips about the many ways dentures can be whitened. Just like your teeth, it’s very important to take good care of your dentures, so that they remain sparkling white, and you can keep showing off that beautiful bright smile of yours! So, how can you whiten dentures?
Say Hello to Ideal Hygiene!
The first step in denture whitening is cleaning your dentures properly every night. You have to be careful and thorough. Before going to bed, take your dentures out and wash them in cold water. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush or a denture brush to remove food particles, plaque and bacteria. Be extra sure that you’ve cleaned under the pink base as well. By giving your dentures a daily clean, you can help ensure they have a long and pearly white life. Get Into a Routine
In addition to giving your dentures a good clean each day, your dentures will need a more thorough clean and whitening from time to time. This will help remove any visible signs that your coffee, tea and other yellowing habits might have imprinted on them. Handy methods of denture whitening include the use of hydrogen peroxide, white vinegar, baking soda, denture cleaning bleach and flossing. One of the simplest ways to whiten your dentures is to pour equal parts vinegar and cold water into a glass, and soak the dentures for 20-30 minutes. Then just rinse the dentures, it’s really that easy!
Things to Beware Of
When using household products (like vinegar and salt) to clean your dentures, it’s crucial that you steer clear of anything that might damage them in the process. Avoid scrubbing your dentures with grainy household cleaners (like toothpaste).
If you keep these tips and tricks in mind, your dentures will stay as white as they were on the day you got them! If you want even more confidence and comfort when you wear your dentures, use Fixodent’s denture adhesives every day. These adhesives are easy to apply and the product ensures your dentures stay in place, so it’s a quick and invisible solution that also stops food particles getting stuck between your gums and your dentures.
