4 Tips To Maintain Your Teeth Whitening Results

At our Calgary dental clinic, our in-office teeth whitening treatment is a minimally invasive, fast, and very reliable way of instantly brightening your teeth. It also provides you with more dramatic and long-lasting results as compared to over-the-counter bleaching products.

However, once you have had your treatment, it’s important to take care of your gums, teeth, and smile, in order to maintain your excellent results. Here are 4 tips to help you maintain the outcome of your teeth whitening procedure:

 

1. Be Careful of What You Eat and Drink

Even the healthiest enamel can absorb color from certain foods and drinks, which can take a toll on the appearance of your teeth and smile. If you want your teeth whitening results to last, then you should take care when consuming certain foods, such as:

  • Red wine
  • Tea and coffee
  • Sports drinks
  • Sodas and dark juices
  • Condiments such as tomato sauce, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar

Tip: A healthy diet and change of habits can prevent tooth stains and preserve your great teeth whitening results. So enjoy your favorite foods, but use caution. Moderation is key when it comes to the foods and drinks that can stain your teeth.

 

2. Follow a Good Oral Care Regimen

If you have invested your time and money in a teeth whitening procedure, then you want to make sure that you make the most of your results. This means taking good care of your teeth at home and brushing at least twice a day.

Flossing is also a key part of any good dental hygiene routine. To keep your smile looking its brightest and best, make sure to floss at least once a day.

 

3. Eat Foods That Can Help Protect Your Teeth

Just like some foods can stain your teeth, others can actually protect them by cleaning them and encouraging your mouth to produce more saliva. In fact, chewing foods such as apples and celery can help scrape tartar off your teeth, while the excess saliva will neutralize any acids that may break down your enamel and leave your teeth vulnerable to stains.

 

4. Quit Smoking

One of the BEST and healthiest things you can do for your oral health and smile is quitting smoking. Nicotine and tar can stain your teeth yellow in just a few months and after several years, heavy smoking can even turn your teeth a brownish color.

It’s Not Just Cosmetic

However, there are more serious consequences of smoking. This habit will significantly increase your risk of:

  • Gum infections
  • Oral and throat cancer
  • Halitosis (bad breath)
  • Leukoplakia
  • Tooth loss

Remember, smoking can lead to many overall issues, not just oral health, so quitting the habit is an important step towards living a healthier and happier life.
