How to Keep the Teeth Clean After Teeth Whitening

The only approved way to brighten the smile and eliminate extrinsic dental stains is through teeth whitening treatment. Our dentist offers several different types of tooth whitening to our patients, to ensure they are confident in showing off their smile.

Our dentist will apply a liquid or gel directly to each tooth, and activated with a special light or laser. This will abrade the teeth in order to remove extrinsic stains. Some treatments offer results up to eight shades brighter, however some patients may return for another to get to the level of brightness they desire.

There are some ways that patients can ensure their smile stays white after their whitening appointment. Our dentist recommends avoiding certain foods and drinks that are highly pigmented. This includes berries, pasta sauce, hard candies, and chocolate, as well as tea, coffee, energy drinks, and dark sodas. Bad lifestyle habits will also be harmful to the look of the teeth, such as smoking tobacco. Naturally, cleaning the teeth by brushing and flossing is vital for removing left over food debris and bacteria.

For more information about how to keep the teeth bright, or recommendations on whitening products, talk to our dentist before or during your whitening appointment.
