Ways to maintain white teeth after teeth whitening
You will need to spend at least $450-$900 whether teeth whitening at home or teeth whitening In-office. You want to make sure your investment doesn’t fade back to yellow before you have time to enjoy your pearly whites.
- Important :
For a minimum of 60 – 72 hours after teeth whitening treatment avoid consuming coffee, tea, dark coloured soda, red wine, berries, candy, red sauces, beets, chocolate or any other foods that have a propensity to stain your teeth. A good guideline is, if it stains a white shirt, it will stain your teeth.
- Rinse mouth or brush teeth after taking meals.
Rinse your mouth with anti-bacterial mouthwash or brush your teeth each and every time you finish taking your meals. Many foods can stain teeth and allowing food particles to remain on your teeth can lead to discoloration.
- Refrain from smoking
Smoking is a major cause of discolouration and continuing the habit quickly stains your whitened teeth. Avoid cigarette smoking for at least 1 month.
- Use a straw to drink coffee or tea
The straw will protect your teeth from stain and discolouration.
