How can I make my teeth whitening treatment last?

Professional teeth whitening at Meadow Creek Family Dentistry can make a dramatic difference to your smile and overall appearance. Being able to smile with confidence again is a pleasure! Of course, you want that great feeling to last as long as possible, so here are a few tips that will help extend the results of your whitening treatment:

Avoid stain-producing foods: This sounds obvious, but you may not even be aware that you’re consuming food and drink that can quickly negate the effects of a professional teeth whitening treatment. Some that you need to be aware of – coffee, tea, red wine, grape juice, soy sauce, tomato sauce, and dark berries. Basically, if it can stain your clothes, it will probably stain your teeth.

Stop using tobacco products: Smoking and chewing tobacco are dangerous to your health and can ruin a beautiful smile faster than anything else, so please consider quitting.

Maintain your treatment with a professional take-home kit: Forget about whitening kits you buy at the store. No matter how much they claim to whiten your teeth, they will never achieve the same results as Opalescence teeth whitening kits available at our Inman, SC dental office.

Practice good oral hygiene: Regular brushing and flossing can do a lot to maintain your bright, white smile. Regular professional cleanings are essential to your oral health and can also clean debris from your teeth that dull your smile.

We want you to enjoy your beautiful, bright smile for as long as possible. Follow these simple guidelines, and you can easily maintain the life of your teeth whitening treatment.
