Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to enhance your smile. That’s why our dental team often recommends it as the first cosmetic dental treatment to try.
To get the most value from teeth bleaching, we offer several tips for patients to maintain their shiny smiles.
Here are some ways to keep your smile as white as possible for as long as possible.
Watch Out for Staining Foods
One of the biggest culprits for dental staining is something we need: food. Certain foods and drinks stain teeth more than others. Consuming them often will cause your teeth to yellow fast. A few examples include:
- Dark tea
- Dark soda
While avoiding these all together may be hard, we recommend at least using a straw to reduce their contact with your teeth. Rinse your mouth after consuming and brush 30 minutes later to help battle surface stains.
Oral tobacco products have an immense yellowing effect. For your oral health and overall wellness, cut back or completely stop using them.
Diligent Dental Hygiene
Brushing and flossing sound simple, but they are truly the best ways to keep your teeth white. Removing plaque and surface stains helps your smile stay radiant. Brush at least twice daily and floss once a day. Use a recommended whitening toothpaste as well.
Regular Dental Cleanings
Dental cleanings also help keep your smile plaque-free and whiter. They go a step further than at-home hygiene. Our team scrubs and polishes every surface of every tooth to help keep your smile looking its best. We can also monitor tooth yellowing and provide personalized advice to help you keep your smile whiter.
