Teeth Whitening Aftercare

Everyone dreams of a bright smile with pearly white teeth. The color of your teeth shows how well you take care of yourself and your oral hygiene. Anytime you talk or smile, whiter teeth make you more confident and look younger. This is why teeth whitening by an expert dentist is recommended to remove stains and discoloration. 

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic procedure to remove stains from the tooth surface and restore the natural color of the teeth. With the advent of the modern art of dental technology, advanced whitening treatment procedures can give you reliable and long-lasting results. 

Teeth are prone to discoloration due to some lifestyle habits such as consumption of tea or coffee, smoking, tobacco use, medications, and aging. Hence, it is essential to go for teeth whitening to give you a bright smile and an instant confidence boost. To get the full benefits of the procedure, good oral hygiene, and a dentist’s aftercare advice ensure brighter teeth for longer.

How to Keep Your Teeth Whitened After the Treatment

Professional teeth whitening makes your smile bright with the removal of stains on the teeth. However, the color of your teeth may change back if you stick to old habits. Proper care after a teeth whitening procedure ensures that the whitening effects last longer. Follow these aftercare instructions strictly during the first one to two days after teeth whitening.

  • Avoid dyed beverages such as coffee, red wine, fruit juice, dark sodas, beer, and black tea.
  • Avoid smoking and tobacco.
  • Use toothpaste that helps with sensitivity.
  • Avoid chewy foods.
  • Brush gently.
  • Schedule regular dental visits.
  • Avoid acid-based food such as soda, pickles, and citrus fruits like oranges and lemons.
  • Use straws while drinking, as the liquid will not pass directly through the teeth. 
  • Consider touch-up treatments to restore the whitening effect.
  • Rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash to remove debris.

Regular teeth cleaning from the dentist enhances the results of professional teeth whitening procedures. The dentist can check for the presence of plaque, tartar, and other food debris and professional cleaning helps to remove them with precision. Thus, it results in uniform whitening of the teeth and even color tone.
