How to Keep Your Smile Beautiful After Your Teeth Whitening Treatment

Your smile is the very first thing others notice about you, so if you have just had your teeth whitened you may want to know how to keep them looking their best!

So you’ve had your teeth whitened? This will create an immediate effect on the appearance of y our smile, making you look more rejuvenated, refreshed and confident. Want to know how to make that last even longer? Have a look at some of our great hints and tips for keeping your smile looking beautiful after a tooth whitening treatment at our Brisbane dental practice.

Avoid foods and drinks that will stain your smile…

Foods and drinks such as red wine, caramel, coffee, tea, chocolate and cola can all greatly influence the colour of your smile, so it is best to avoid these or if necessary drink these beverages through a straw.

It may be an obvious recommendation, but sometimes those who have whitened their teeth feel they can now be slack about their oral health – this is simply not true! If anything you need to be even more diligent to help ensure your smile stays beautiful for longer.

Make small changes to your lifestyle

Some things you may not be able to change, such as certain medications that you must take (which can sometimes cause discolouration to the teeth). However there are some things that are within your control to change, and this includes smoking and your diet. Smoking is devastating to your oral health and your overall health, so it is always recommended to cease this habit if possible. Another thing to consider is eating more foods that are healthy and are also natural tooth cleaners, these include apples, strawberries, celery and carrots.

Chew sugar-free gum after eating

While gum with sugar can actually be bad for your smile (as it can accelerate tooth decay) chewing SUGAR-FREE gum after each meal can actually help you maintain the beauty of your smile. By doing so you can help remove food particles that would otherwise stay stuck between the teeth as well as stimulate saliva flow which is your mouth’s first defence against bacteria, effectively preventing or reducing the likelihood of dental staining.

Maintain good oral health

It may be an obvious recommendation, but sometimes those who have whitened their teeth feel they can now be slack about their oral health – this is simply not true! If anything you need to be even more diligent to help ensure your smile stays beautiful for longer.
