Teeth’s whitening is everybody’s concern. In fact, a lot of people spend hundreds of dollars for tooth whitening products, services and procedures, but tooth whitening can be not that expensive. Yes.
Last week I visit my teeth whitening Makati dentist for a regular check-up and as the procedure goes on, he talks about Dos and Don’ts regarding whitening out teeth and that is what I want to share with you today! Let’s get started.
First, let’s talk about the 3 Don’ts.
Do not use baking soda!
This is what makes me listen to my dentist. When I heard “baking soda” my mind stops thinking and focusing only to the question, did I really hear baking soda? Why! A lot of blogs and websites say that baking soda is good. Why is it then a don’t?
According to a men’s magazine, baking soda is an abrasive, meaning it will help remove stains, but can also be harmful if use continuously. It can wear away enamel, which is the cause why your teeth will look darkened. Woosh!
Do not eat dark foods!
My dentist told me that I must stay away from dark foods. I said why, and he said that according to Dr. Debra Glassman’s (a dentist in Manhattan) “Do not Eat” list, foods that have very dark pigmentation like blueberries, marinara sauce and soy sauce, can cause teeth staining.
Check this out for a list of food that may cause food stains in your teeth.
Do not guzzle sports drinks
If you will read the link above, you now know that tea, coffee and red wine are the usual cause of teeth stains and in addition to that, you must stay away from sports drinks.
These beverages have acid that cause same effects as eating citrus fruits (like lemons and oranges), only your teeth are bathing in it. Using a straw while drinking these teeth stain-causing drinks can protect your little white friend.
Now let’s go for the 5 Dos
Do change your tooth brush regularly
A whiter teeth is as easy as replacing your old tooth brush regularly! According to dentists, toothbrushes have only a lifespan of three months and we must replace them afterwards. After three months, your toothbrush’s bristles begin to worn and bend, and with these, they are not cleaning your teeth properly anymore.
Do brush your tongue
Not all of us do tongue brushing. But brushing this swirly muscle in out mouth will not just produce fresh breath but it can also prevent stains and other mouth disease. The tongue can accumulate thousands of bacteria which can lead to teeth discoloration.
In brushing your tongue, you can use a soft toothbrush and long strokes starting at the very back of the tongue. Rinse your brush after each stroke so that the bacteria on your brush can be remove without re-depositing it in on your tongue.
Do rinse with apple cider vinegar
This may be not effective as the other commercialized whitening products, but it is a natural and organic way to maintain healthy teeth and smile. Dentists recommend rinsing with two-thirds water to one-third apple cider vinegar, and swishing the solution for around one minute then, you’ll ready to show the world your luxurious smile.
Do eat raw and crunchy fruits and vegetables
Eating the fruit of the land and other crunchy foods is good for your body and your teeth. Eating raw carrots, nuts, cauliflowers and apples can keep your teeth clean, according to dentists. These foods help in cleaning your mouth by removing surface stains and plaques that will lead to cavities and other oral health problems.

Do use gel strays rather than strips
There are debates about the effectiveness of whitening strips, because other dentists say that strips may not distribute the paste evenly. Teeth are normally darkest near the gum line, where the strips cannot reach. Instead, these dentists recommend the use of whitening gel trays. They tend to cover all parts of the teeth.
Steel fabrication companies nowadays are not just focused on steel fabrication and customized projects. There are lots of steel fabrication businesses that focused on special processes and for this article I will show you some of their special processes!
There are companies who are specialized in casting. It is a manufacturing process in which a liquid material is usually poured into a mold, which has a hollow cavity of the desired shape and then for some time will be solidify. The part that is solidified is also known as casting. Casting materials are usually metals or various cold setting materials that cure after mixing two or more components together. It is used most often for making complex shapes that would be otherwise difficult to produce by other methods.
It is a process used to create objects with a fixed cross-sectional profile. A material is pushed through a die of the intended cross-section. There are two main advantages of extrusion. First is its ability to create a very complex cross-sections and the second is to work materials that are brittle, because the material only encounters shear and comprehensive stresses. Extrusion can also form parts with an excellent surface finish.
It is a manufacturing process about metal shaping with the use of localized comprehensive forces. Using a hammer, the blows are delivered to the metal. It is often classified according to the temperature at which it was performed. The classifications are as follows; hot forging, warm forging and cold forging. For hot and warm forging, the metal is heated in a forge.
The parts of the forge can be ranged in weight from less than a kilogram to hundreds of metric tons. Some of the most commonly known products from this process are kitchenware, edged weapons, hardware, hand tools, and jewelry.
Powder coating is a type of coating which is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. What it differs from the conventional liquid pain and a powder coating is that it does not require any solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form.
Typically the coating is applied electrostatically and then under the heat was cured to allow it to flow and form a skin. The powder is a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer, which is usually used to create a hard finish which is tougher than the conventional paint.
Powder coating is used for coating of metals, like in household appliances, extrusions and automobile.
It is a fabrication process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering which do not melt the base metal.
It is the most economical and efficient way to join metals permanently.
This is just one of the many things a steel fabrication can be specialized with. Be sure that if you need a steel fabrication project, you are to deal with a specialized company.
