When you take the time, and spend the money to have your teeth whitened, you want that treatment to last a long time. Tooth whitening is not a permanent procedure, but you can do some simple things that will help to keep your newly whitened teeth looking great for quite a while. The following are some of the best ways to ensure you have a bright smile that lasts.
One of the most important things to do is to continue with great oral hygiene habits. Brush your teeth at least two to three times per day, and do not forget to floss. You should also make sure you are brushing right before you go to bed, and only have water to drink after brushing.
You should also reevaluate some of the habits you have and the foods and drinks that you consumer. Some of these things are causing the stains, and they will come back faster if you continue with them. Stop smoking, as this can cause some serious stains on your teeth. In addition, eliminate the drinks and food that stain, such as coffee, red wine, and tea. If you can’t give them up entirely, consider using a straw. Blueberries can stain too. If you eat them, be sure to brush your teeth right after.
You can also eat some foods that can help whiten teeth, such as nuts, strawberries, apples, and broccoli. Also, be sure to listen to the recommendations from the tooth whitening specialist for your newly whitened teeth.
