HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR WHITE SMILE WITH TIPS FROM OUR UPTOWN CHARLOTTE DENTIST

September 20, 2016 by belvederefd

Your teeth can stay visibly white for up to six months after a teeth whitening procedure, but only if you’re taking the very best care of your teeth after the procedure. How can you ensure that you maintain those white teeth that are smiling brightly back at you in the mirror for the longest period of time?

 

Eat Healthier

The foods that you eat do affect the whiteness of your teeth! Avoid sugary sweets, including drinks, which can cause discoloration as well as cavities. Coffee, soda, and tea also are known to stain the teeth. Water is always the best drink to reach for, and fruit to calm the sweet tooth. If you simply must drink coffee, tea, soda, etc. make sure that you brush your teeth afterward, if possible.

 

Watch Your Habits

Not only can the foods that you eat cause tooth discoloration, so can your habits! Smoking is one of the habits that causes tooth discoloration, not to mention horrible smoker’s breath!

 

Brush Your Teeth

Twice per day, two minutes each time. Brushing your teeth properly is the absolute best way to ensure that you get the most out of your whitening procedure and visit from the Charlotte dentist. Both the front and back of the teeth should be brushed for two to three minutes each brushing session. Don’t forget to brush to tongue, too! Be sure to floss to remove particles stuck between the teeth.

 

Choose Your Oral Health Products

The toothpaste and toothbrush that you’re using to care for your teeth is important. It is imperative that you own both quality toothpaste and toothbrush to thoroughly remove plaque from the teeth and for cavity prevention. It is worth paying a little more to obtain quality products and keep the white teeth that you want.

 

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Cosmetic dentistry is to thank for the awesome smile looking back at you, impressing everyone who sees that gorgeous smile. Make sure that you use cosmetic dentistry services for teeth whitening twice per year for a professional tooth whitening service. While the at-home kits provide some results, nothing can replace the outstanding results offered from the Charlotte dentist!
