Tips for Keeping Teeth White After Professional Whitening

Woman Brushing Her Teeth

After your professional teeth whitening treatment, maintaining that bright smile is crucial. Of course, you want to enjoy your new pearly whites for as long as possible!

Here’s some simple, proven advice to help you keep your bright smile dazzling for as long as possible. .

Be Careful with Staining Foods

Be mindful of foods and drinks that can stain your teeth. Prime examples include:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Berries
  • Soy sauce

Using a straw can also help minimize contact with these staining culprits. Rinse your mouth after consuming and brush to limit the staining effects!

Quit Tobacco

Tobacco is a big cause of teeth staining. If you’ve recently had whitening done, consider quitting to improve your overall health and keep your teeth white. It’s certainly not an easy task, but the promise of whiter teeth is an extra motivating factor. 

Brush and Floss Daily

Good oral hygiene is key to maintaining a bright smile. Use a whitening toothpaste recommended to gently remove surface stains and prevent new ones. Flossing removes small food particles and helps prevent cavities as well. 

Regular Dental Check-ups

Schedule routine (at least twice yearly) dental check-ups to keep an eye on your oral health. Dr. Harry Suekert can provide touch-up treatments and offer guidance on keeping your smile radiant.

Consider Touch-Up Treatments

Over time, teeth can naturally experience some discoloration. Dr. Harry Suekert offers periodic touch-up treatments to refresh and maintain your whitened smile. Our dental team will also share customized advice for over-the-counter products that can help you maintain your smile’s brightness.
