How can I make teeth whitening last longer?
We know that it is important to our patients that their teeth that are not only healthy, but also beautiful. Many of our patients decide that the quickest way to a bright beautiful smile is by having a professional teeth-whitening treatment done in our office. Of course, having your teeth whitened at our Summit dental office requires you to invest both time and money, and you want to make sure that the results last as long as possible.
One of the best ways you can make your beautiful white teeth stay that way is to avoid certain foods and lifestyle habits that cause your teeth to become stained in the first place. For instance, nothing stains your teeth as severely as using tobacco. If you smoke, you already know the damage it does to your health. This alone is enough reason to stop smoking, and keeping your teeth bright and white is just another.
There is no reason for you to completely avoid food and beverages that stain your teeth. Some of these are red wine, tea, coffee, and cola drinks. If you want to go ahead and enjoy these foods, just remember that you can help avoid staining by brushing your teeth immediately afterwards.
Of course, oral hygiene has a tremendous impact on the whiteness of your teeth, so be sure to maintain good habits like brushing, flossing, and returning to our Summit dental office for regular professional cleanings.
