You decided to have your teeth professionally whitened, and you couldn’t be happier with the results!
A beautiful bright smile is like a calling card that gets you noticed and helps you interact confidently with others. Your self-esteem gets a boost because you know that you look and feel your best.
Maintaining Your Bright New Smile
Your goal now is to maintain the brilliant results, so you get the most enjoyment out of your whitening treatment. If you want to extend the longevity of your bright new smile, here are three tips for taking care of your teeth after whitening:
- Practice good oral hygiene – You have to brush anyway to keep your teeth healthy and avoid decay. Now you have another reason to continue or even step up your brushing and flossing habits. Nothing can mar your bright smile faster than skimping on your oral hygiene!
- Avoid staining food and drinks – If you have had your teeth whitened, you may already know that coffee and red wine are two enemies of a bright smile. But there are lots of other foods that can stain your teeth - dark berries, curries, tomato sauce, soy sauce, and even balsamic vinegar, are just a few. Avoid these foods for the brightest smile.
- Keep scheduled appointments – Having a thorough professional cleaning every six months does wonders for your oral health AND your beautiful, bright smile. Seeing you routinely also helps us find and treat any conditions that can affect the appearance of your smile.
