Fluoride is a mineral that helps strengthen your teeth. Using it will also help you to prevent cavities.
Brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Ideally using a fluoride toothpaste.
Daily flossing also removes the leftover food and bacteria that is hidden within the crevices of the tooth.
Curbing your sweet-tooth will help tremendously. Food and drinks that are high in sugary content do major damage to your teeth over time. Especially if they aren’t managed well.

Sensitive teeth usually means that tooth decay is occurring and some of your enamel has worn away. There are also chances that sensitive teeth can have a different underlying problem.
Speak your dentist about sensitive teeth to get to the root of the problem.
Otherwise, toothpaste for sensitive teeth is available. Fluoride gel can help ease oral pain as well. Avoid brushing your teeth hard and acidic foods.
Whitening toothpastes work by attacking the stains on the surface of teeth. Although this seems like it may help, ignoring the underlying problem will only delay the issue. Teeth begin to change color once they are stained no only on the outside, but throughout the tooth.
Non-whitening toothpastes work by not only attacking the outside stain, but also by restoring the health of your teeth and mouth. Unless you already have very white teeth, whitening toothpaste will not show much of a result.
