Keeping your teeth white after a professional whitening service in Moonee Ponds

Dr. Terry Rose, Smile In Style

You did it. You took the leap and scheduled a professional teeth whitening treatment with your dentist. Now, you love your results, and you’re confidently showing off your smile, but a small part of you might be worried about how long this dazzling smile can last.

It’s true. The results of your whitening treatment can be stunning, but they won’t last forever if you go back to your old habits. To keep your smile sparkling it’s important to remember these tips:

  • The same things that caused your teeth to discolour before will cause it again. In many cases, discoloration is caused by eating and drinking dark foods and beverages. If you’re still drinking several cups of coffee each morning, you’re likely to see your smile become dingy again. You can also try brushing your teeth after you consume dark foods and beverages to remove the particles immediately.
  • Brush and floss. Good dental hygiene is important for the health of your mouth. But it’s also important for the appearance of your smile. Brushing and flossing will remove food particles that could otherwise begin to cause discoloration. While many patients think they need to use whitening toothpaste, for most individuals regular toothpaste will work effectively. If you do use whitening toothpaste, limit it to one or two times per week and use regular toothpaste the rest of the time.
  • Stop smoking. If you smoke or use tobacco products, try to quit. These products are not only harmful to your health but can be hurting your smile as well.
  • Consider touch-ups and maintenance treatments using our Kör Whitening System. Even with the best dental habits, it’s hard to keep your smile white all the time. The Kör Home Whitening System allows you to keep your smile looking great all the time.

A bright smile can go a long way to helping you feel confident. To learn more about your teeth whitening options in Sunbury or Moonee Ponds, call the Smile in Style office today.
