Maintaining Your Newly Whitened Smile
To ensure that you maximize the benefits of your teeth whitening treatment, follow these guidelines:
Steer Clear of Staining Foods and Beverages: Minimize your consumption of darkly colored foods and beverages like berries and red wine, as they can potentially stain your teeth.
Rinse After Meals: After each meal, make it a habit to rinse your mouth with water to help wash away any residual food particles or substances that may contribute to tooth staining.
Brush Thoroughly Twice a Day: Brush your teeth at least twice a day for a minimum of two minutes each time. This regular brushing routine helps to remove surface stains and maintain the brightness of your smile.
Floss Daily: Don’t forget to floss at least once a day to clean between your teeth and along the gum line. This practice helps remove plaque and prevents the buildup of tartar, which can affect the appearance of your teeth.
Quit Smoking: Smoking can lead to significant tooth discoloration. By quitting smoking, you can preserve the whiteness of your teeth and improve your overall oral health.
Schedule Touch-Up Appointments: Visit Vancouver Harbour Dental for periodic touch-up appointments as recommended by your dentist. These appointments can help maintain the longevity of your whitened smile and address any potential staining or discoloration that may occur over time.
By adhering to these guidelines, you can take proactive steps to preserve and enjoy your newly enhanced smile for as long as possible.
