How to Keep Your Teeth White After the Teeth Whitening Treatment

Teeth whitening is a popular way to increase the brightness of your smile. B&G Family Dentistry offers dentists in your area that can whiten your teeth so that your smile dazzles. You can get treatment either in your home or in the office – either way your smile will look amazing.

After getting treatment with our dentist, there are a few ways you should preservice your smile and keep teeth sparkling white. We’ve outlined some of these things so that your smile can look beautiful for a lifetime.

Foods to Avoid After Teeth Whitening Treatment

Certain foods can stain the enamel of teeth, so you should watch the things you eat as well as what you drink. This is especially crucial during the first 48 hours after treatment has been completed. Some of the foods you should be careful of, or avoid completely, are:

  • Coffees and teas, as they can stain the surface of teeth in an instant
  • Dark sauces, such as red pasta sauce, barbecue sauce, or soy sauce
  • Juices made with fruits
  • Dark chocolates due to the presence of caffeine
  • Acidic foods, including lemons and other citrus fruits that are sour or acidic

Teeth Whitening Aftercare: Observe Proper Oral Hygiene

After getting your teeth whitened, your oral care is extremely important. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day so that plaque doesn’t accumulate. Rinse with mouthwash and consider adding a whitening toothpaste to your regimen once a week or so.

Consider Touch-Up Treatments

Depending on the treatment you get as well as your lifestyle and diet, your whitening results will not last forever. Consider getting touch up treatments biannually at home or in our dental office to preserve the brightness of your teeth.

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

One of the most effective ways to ensure your teeth stay white is to visit the dentist for aftercare and check ups to make sure your teeth are healthy and shiny. B&G Family Dentistry is dedicated to making sure your smile is beautiful, so stop in anytime.
