We all want to have white teeth because it’s aesthetically pleasing and makes us want to smile more. But as you know, it is not that easy. One of the most popular ways to whiten your teeth is by visiting your dentist for a whitening treatment. Your dentist can go over the whitening procedure as well as improving your oral health. But what do you need to do after the treatment?
Foods and beverages to avoid
You need to avoid foods and beverages that are difficult for your teeth and gums.
- Avoid coffee, tea, red wine, dark berries and any other food or beverage that stains the teeth.
- Brush your teeth after every meal with a fluoride toothpaste for two minutes each time.
- Floss once a day to remove plaque from between the teeth.
- Use mouthwash twice a day with fluoride in it.
Proper Oral Hygiene & Maintenance
Proper oral hygiene and maintenance is important not only for sparkling white teeth but also to avoid oral health issues such as gingivitis or gum disease. Your teeth may be whiter than ever, but they are still susceptible to decay and other oral health issues.
Lastly, it is important to visit your dentist at least once every six months for a professional cleaning. Your dentist will be able to remove any plaque or tartar buildup that you may not have been able to get with home care alone!
