How to Make Your Whitening Treatment Last - Smiles by Jiveh

How to Make Your Whitening Treatment Last

Whether you’ve whitened your teeth using strips from your local pharmacy or you invested in a professional Zoom! Whitening treatment, once you have pearly whites, you probably want to keep them that way. However, if you don’t take the proper measures to maintain your white teeth, they can easily revert back to being yellow or otherwise discolored.

To make your whitening treatment last, here are some things you should do regularly.

Avoid Staining Foods

In the past, we’ve filled you in on a few foods that can stain your teeth. Foods like spinach, tomato sauce, and beets, and drinks like coffee and soda can leave unsightly stains on your teeth, so it’s a good idea to limit how often you eat or drink these items after having your teeth whitened.

Don’t Use Tobacco

This is easier said than done for some people, but if you want your whitening treatment to last, you need to give up tobacco. It can actually be difficult to get white teeth in the first place while you’re smoking or using chewing tobacco. Continuing to use tobacco products after your treatment can counteract your whitening efforts.

Use a Whitening Toothpaste

Get the “OK” from your dentist first to avoid sensitivity, but after you’ve achieved a whiter smile, use a whitening toothpaste to help your results last longer. It’s best to find a whitening toothpaste that also supports enamel health, so you’re killing two birds with one stone.

Schedule Regular Visits

The main reason teeth become discolored is because bacteria and other plaque cling to them, yellowing them or causing white calcium spots. Try as you might, regular brushing can’t get rid of all the plaque in your mouth. That’s why it’s essential to schedule cleanings every six months so your teeth can be completely plaque-free.
