Helping Your Teeth Whitening Results Last
Drink plenty of water, especially after eating - Dark foods and drinks contain staining compounds. The outer layer of your enamel is porous, and vulnerable to these stains. The dark particles enter your enamel and yellow your smile. By rinsing with water after having your coffee, red sauce, or red wine, you can help wash things away before the stains set.
- Snack on fruit, vegetables, and dairy - Snacks are key causes of problems because you don’t produce as much saliva when eating them as you do during a full meal. This allows bacteria and acids to remain in the mouth longer. Try choosing healthy snacks to limit their negative effects on your teeth.
- Protect your teeth - Enamel is the outermost layer of your teeth, and is typically light in color. It covers the dentin, which is yellower and can darken your smile if the enamel thins. Conserving your enamel will help you keep your teeth looking young, full, and bright. If you think you might be grinding your teeth at night, consider a mouth guard to preserve your enamel - and never use your teeth as tools!
- Perform whitening touch-ups at home - Ask Dr. Lee or your hygienist about a home whitening kit. Performing regular touch-ups every few months will help your dramatic in-office results last longer.
