How to Keep Your Teeth Looking Their Best Following Whitening

Posted on 4/10/2018 by Office Manager
Tooth Whitening Spalding Dental AK 99503-2838When you go through and whiten your teeth, you want the effect to last. This can be done by being thoughtful when you care for your teeth.

You want to care for them gently, and also be mindful when you pick out the foods you eat and the drinks you consume. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your tooth whitening procedure.

Getting Your Tooth Whitening to Last as Long as Possible

The first thing you want to do when you want to keep the benefits of tooth whitening is to make sure you avoid things that you know stain your teeth.

This includes things like tea and coffee, curries, berries, and beets. All of these things will get in and stain your teeth if consumed right after your procedure.

The next thing you want to do is make sure that you always brush and floss like you are supposed to. Each morning and each night, take the time to brush with a whitening toothpaste. This will help keep the whitening effect even longer.

Finally, you want to make sure that you drink as much water as you can. Other drinks are more likely to cause the whitening to fade. Water, particularly tap water, fortifies your teeth with fluoride. This helps you prevent tooth decay and cavities, which helps to keep your teeth healthier.

Enjoy the effects of having whiter teeth for as long as possible. The more you care for your teeth now, the longer those effects will last.

Be mindful of the food and drink choices you make, and avoid anything that is going to harm the white effect you have. Plus, make sure to come back and see us for regular cleaning to help it last even longer.
