Having white teeth makes you look healthier and attractive when smiling. It also boosts up self confidence. There are two popular treatments here in Smileway which can do so, namely dental veneers and teeth whitening. This article will focus more on the after care of teeth whitening.
1. Use home kit whitening
This whitening process uses lower-strength whitening gel over several weeks. This results in a more permanent color change due to deeper penetration of gel into the teeth. It can be used as a maintenance product after teeth whitening in the dental clinic.
2. Use whitening toothpaste
Over-the-counter toothpastes help remove some surface stains. Many of these products contain mild abrasives, chemicals, or polishing agents. Unlike whitening gels, they cannot change the natural color of teeth. Therefore, whitening has to be done first, then whitening toothpaste as daily maintenance.
3. Avoid stain food and drinks especially for the first week
It’s so important to try to avoid staining teeth in the first place, especially after whitening. If you take care with foods and drinks that discolor teeth, the results of whitening may last up to one year.
4. Do not smoke
Smoking is one of the worst offenders when it comes to staining teeth. The longer you smoke, the more stubborn the stains become. Smoking also causes bad breath and gum disease.
5. Don’t Forget Daily Maintenance
To help maintain white teeth brush at least twice daily. Even better, brush after every meal and snack. Brushing helps prevent stains and yellow teeth, especially at the gum line. We also need to use floss daily and adjunctively antiseptic mouthwash.
These are some of the steps you can take to have a stronger and healthier tooth. After all, we all want to make sure we are problem free and we can enjoy our life and food for many years.
