8. Use an Electric Toothbrush
Electric toothbrushes are more effective at removing plaque than their manual counterparts. As a bonus, they’re quieter and more comfortable too. The caveat: electric toothbrushes can be pricey, with an average price of $50. But if you’re looking for a way to expedite your smile-perfecting process, an electric toothbrush is worth considering. We recommend Philips Sonicare brushes (around $35), which can be purchased at any pharmacy or drugstore.
7. Practice Good Oral Hygiene at Home and When You Travel
Brushing your teeth after every meal is a must. But don’t forget to floss, too; it gets rid of plaque buildup between teeth, which can lead to decay if left alone for too long. If you travel often, bring along a small dental kit that contains toothpaste, a brush, and floss. You could even use mini-flossers or an electric toothbrush while on the go.
