Tips for Keeping Your Smile Bright
You invested time and money into the teeth whitening process, so here are a few tips for getting the most out of your treatment.
Step Up Your Oral Hygiene Routine
Being proactive with your oral hygiene is essential all the time. But brushing twice a day and flossing once removes plaque that dulls dental enamel and food debris that cause staining.
Schedule Routine Dental Exams and Cleanings
Pairing your at-home hygiene efforts with professional dental cleanings ensures that your teeth are “deep-down” clean. As part of your cleaning appointment, our dental hygienist polishes your teeth, which also helps renew the brightness of your smile.
Avoid Tobacco and Staining Foods
You may already know that coffee, dark tea, and red wine are notorious for staining teeth and should be avoided. But you may not be aware that foods and drinks like blackberries, beets, tomato sauce, curries, and white wine can also stain and dull your smile.
Use Your Custom Kit for At-Home Touchups
When you choose professional at-home teeth whitening, you will receive prescription strength whitening gel and customized trays. After your two-week treatment, you can continue to perform monthly touchups at home to keep your smile bright.
