Naturally our teeth colour varies from white to pale yellow. Everyone'll not hv pearly white teeth. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist n if your unhappy with your teeth colour later, I cn go for teeth bleaching.
Scalling will clean your teeth n reduce infection n hence bleeding gums. Maintain oral hygiene- brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with finger tips post brushing. Visit your dentist every 6 months for a check up.
Hi you need cleaning of teeth by a dentist. Bleeding from your gums is due to deposits (tartar) on your teeth. It can't be cleaning by regular brushing. So please visit a dentist and get professional cleaning (scaling) done.
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth.
- floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque.
- control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth.
- stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums.
- eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque.
- try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line.
- you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.
