teeth whiteningOnce you’ve completed a teeth whitening treatment, there are a few steps you can take to maintain your whiter smile.

Avoid stain-causing foods and beverages – coffee, tea, wine, sports drinks, hard candy, berries and tomato sauce are all foods that can cause tooth discoloration.

Use a straw – when drinking beverages, use a straw to keep stain-causing dyes away from your teeth.

Quit smoking – smoking tobacco can cause teeth to become discolored. Eliminating tobacco can help keep your teeth bright.

Treating Sensitive Teeth After TEETH WHITENING

Sometimes after whitening treatments, teeth can be sensitive. If this occurs you have options to reduce the pain.

Use a sensitivity toothpaste – sensitive toothpastes are formulated with ingredients such as potassium nitrate to relive the pain associated with tooth sensitivity

Chew gum – scientists have found that more saliva is produced when chewing gum. And the act of chewing may distract people from the pain.

Avoid whitening for a while – give your teeth a break and stop using whitening products.
