How To Maintain Your Teeth After Teeth Whitening

It is possible to acquire much brighter teeth with the assistance of team of professionals at Langleys Dental in as little as one office visit or even in your own home for a period of only two weeks. However, one issue that most of our patients have in the days following their treatment is how to keep their teeth as white as possible.

Here are some suggestions that will really assist you in maintaining that radiant grin.


Brush your teeth

Constantly brushing your teeth is perhaps the most effective trick you can use to keep your teeth whiter for longer periods of time. The use of anti-bacterial toothpaste with whitening characteristics after each meal is essential, and it should be done every time. Food is frequently the source of gradual darkening of your teeth, so it is advisable to avoid it from remaining in your mouth for an extended period of time by brushing your teeth more frequently.


Cut down coffee intake

Avoiding coffee would be beneficial because caffeine can flow through your teeth and darken them in the process of doing so. Drinking coffee, soda, or any other caffeinated beverage through a straw will prevent the chemical from colouring your teeth if it is nearly difficult for you to do. It is also recommended that you refrain from drinking these beverages, as well as eating foods that could stain your teeth, for at least 24 hours after having your teeth whitened.


It is an investment

Even if there are some teeth whitening treatments that are reasonably priced, they are by no means inexpensive. Consider it an investment in your future. Similarly, if you fail to properly care for your teeth and end up staining them again, you will be required to undergo another procedure. This would just consume your valuable time and resources. If there is anything you can do to avoid this happening, do so. It’s not going to hurt to brush and floss your teeth on a regular basis.
