3 Ways to Make Teeth Whitening Last

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-tooth-comparison

After whitening your teeth, you may expect your pearly whites to stay bright for good. Sadly, you will quickly start seeing stains from darker foods and drinks. But you can help your teeth stay whiter longer with these simple tips for the best teeth whitening.

  1. Stay Away from Staining Foods and Beverages
    According to dentists, prevention provides the very best teeth whitening protection. So since darker foods and beverages can easily stain your smile, stay smart about consuming them by choosing lighter foods and using a straw when drinking darker beverages. If you do consume dark foods and drinks, be sure to brush your teeth or rinse your mouth afterwards. This can help remove any remnants of these staining substances.
  2. Keep Teeth Clean
    Dentists say that practicing proper dental care is one of the best teeth whitening methods for maintaining a whiter smile. Brush at least twice daily and floss at least once daily to remove plaque and stains before they build up. Consider occasionally using a whitening toothpaste, which has strong abrasives that can scrub away stains. But since these stronger teeth whitening pastes can easily damage tooth enamel, only use them once a week.
  3. Get Touch-Up Treatments
    While even the best teeth whitening method requires touch-up treatments, the frequency of these follow-ups is based on the way you whitened and how often teeth are exposed to stains from food, beverages, or smoking. It may be time for a touch-up every six months or every couple of years.
