• Teeth Whitening Aftercare

teeth whitening aftercareWhen it comes to cosmetic dentistry procedures, everyone loves teeth whitening. With few exceptions, tooth whitening can improve almost anyone’s smile with just a single visit to your dentists in Leesburg or with a few prescribed at-home treatments. However, a lot of people hesitate to get their teeth whitened because they assume that the treatment will just fade away quickly and that they’ll have the same stains and discoloring once again. With proper teeth whitening aftercare, though, you can enjoy the effects of a brighter smile for a lot longer.

Caring for Your Newly Whitened Teeth

For the first two to three days after your teeth whitening, you’ll want to avoid foods and beverages that can stain your teeth. So, for just a couple of days, you should say no to coffee, red wine, dark soft drinks, berries, dark chocolate, and other dark foods and beverages.

After the first couple of days, you should be able to go back to your normal diet, but try to be aware when you eat and drink things that can stain your teeth. One of the best things you can do for your teeth whitening aftercare is to drink a lot of water and brush your teeth after you eat or drink staining foods and beverages.

Even if you cannot brush your teeth every time you eat, be sure to floss and brush them thoroughly right before bed, as well as in the morning or at some other time during the day.
