Having a white and bright smile can be very beneficial. If you have recently whitened your smile, you most likely love your appearance more and you most likely experience a higher self-confidence. Our dentists, Drs. Niu, Yuen, Wong and Dang, always want you to love your smile. If you’re interested in maintaining the results of your whitening treatment for as long as possible, our dentist is happy to help you. You can do so by doing the following things:
-Avoid tooth-staining substances: Coffee, tea, cola, red wine and other dark beverages as well as dark foods can stain the tooth enamel. If you want to maintain white teeth, it’s best to avoid those tooth-staining things. If you absolutely have to drink a dark drink, it’s best to drink it through a straw so you limit the contact it has with the teeth.
-Avoid tobacco: Tobacco severely discolors the teeth. It also affects the oral health and body. It’s best to avoid tobacco use altogether so you can maintain a white smile as well as have a healthier body.
-Use whitening toothpaste: Whitening toothpaste can help you because it can remove the stains from your teeth each day before they have a chance to set into the tooth enamel. You can talk to your dental team about which whitening toothpaste we recommend using.
