Keeping Your Dentures White

Senior Couple Smiling Roswell GA

If you’ve lost a full arch of teeth, dentures are a life-saving solution. Modern dentures can replace missing teeth and replicate the smile you once had in terms of function, feel and appearance. Just like your natural teeth, however, dentures must be properly cared for to avoid structural damage as well as staining.

Fortunately, your prosthetic teeth won’t stain quite like your real teeth. However, that doesn’t mean that your dentures will retain their brilliant white regardless of what you put them through. It is important to learn the ways you can keep your dentures white so that your smile confidence isn’t jeopardized by yellow, dark or stained teeth.

Switch Your Toothbrush and Toothpaste
The toothbrushes and toothpastes you used for your natural teeth may be too abrasive for your dentures. This includes the any whitening toothpastes you may have used in the past. You’ll need to start using a toothpaste that is uniquely designed for dentures.

Know When to Clean Your Dentures
Berries, red wine, and coffee are common tooth-staining culprits that can also impact your dentures. While you don’t have to avoid these dark-colored foods and drinks, you should make an effort to clean your dentures immediately after consuming them. A simple rinse with water can help if you don’t have access to a toothbrush!

Remember to Floss Your Dentures Regularly
Yes, your dentures need flossing too. Food particles and dark liquids can get stuck between your prosthetic teeth. Flossing can be a critical task to keeping all surfaces of your dentures bright and clean.

Remove Your Dentures During Sleep
If you are in the habit of sleeping with your dentures, you are exposing your prosthetic teeth to large amounts of bacteria growth. In addition, your dentures are missing their valued hours of soaking. Dentures rely on your sleeping hours to be soaked and cleaned. Always talk to your dentist before you try a new cleaning tablet or soaking mixture, as there are certain ingredients (like lemon juice) that can damage your prosthetic teeth after a certain amount of time.

Talk to Your Dentist

If you are struggling to find confidence in the way your dentures feel or look, consult your denture provider. At Mitzi Morris DMD, we realize the notable investment you’ve made in your dentures and we want you to retain a brilliant and healthy smile going forward!

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
