How to Maintain Your Teeth Whitening Results
Fortunately, maintaining teeth whitening results is relatively easy. In many cases, it doesn’t even require much adjustment to routines you already have in place. You can work towards keeping your teeth bright and beautiful by:
- Not smoking, chewing, or otherwise using products with nicotine
- Reducing your intake of coffee, tea, and red wine
- Drinking sodas and sports drinks through a straw
- Reducing your intake of dark foods like berries and sauces
- Washing away stain causers with foods that stimulate saliva production such as apples, strawberries, celery, carrots and pears
- Swishing water in your mouth after eating or drinking so that stain causers don’t sit on your teeth
In addition to these steps, you can help keep your teeth white by brushing after every meal and snack with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a slightly abrasive toothpaste. Remember, some types of toothpaste can scratch and damage dental restorations. We can discuss these steps with you during your teeth whitening consultation.
Proper dental hygiene can go a long way in keeping your teeth stain-free. Good teeth cleaning habits will fight the presence of cavity causing bacteria and the food debris that leads to yellowing. Part of a solid oral hygiene routine is twice-yearly visits to our Perth or Kingsway clinic for professional cleanings and examinations. During these visits, we will help you maintain your tooth whitening results by removing surface stains and gently polishing your teeth. If it has been more than six months since your last cleaning, call us today to schedule your next appointment.
