Getting top dollar from the tooth fairy

That tooth fairy is a very particular lady – your teeth have to be just right in order to get top dollar these days. Your smile is valuable real estate though, so if you learn how to properly take care of it, it'll be worth quite a lot! 

Check out our tips on how to get teeth that will earn you the big bucks – it's time to make that tooth fairy pay!

Engage in basic tooth care 

Good dental hygiene is easy, but not everyone is so quick to play by the rules. First, and foremost, be sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day. This will help keep them in mint condition – and speaking of mint, that's a good toothpaste flavour that will leave you with nice, fresh breath! If you're eating particularly sticky foods, be sure to brush or floss after, so food particles don't stick around too long.

That said, you can't forget to floss! We recommend that you floss every day, aiming to get in between your teeth and gums to ensure food particles aren't lingering around. Otherwise, they'll devalue your teeth by creating cavities – or worse, root canals.

Avoid staining your smile 

You know stains instantly drive the value down of anything – teeth are no exception. So, you need to avoid staining them. This is just a simple matter of knowing what everyday foods are dulling your smile. You can always get your teeth professionally whitened, but helping prevent them from getting stained in the first place will seriously up your tooth value. Here's a list of foods that you need to be weary of:

  • Coffee
  • Pasta sauce
  • Red wine
  • Curry
  • Balsamic vinegar

At the end of the day, you want those pearly whites looking good not just for the tooth fairy, but for impressing everyone else you encounter in life.
