How long does teeth whitening last?
You have the beautiful sparkling white smile you have always wanted after whitening your teeth. But how do you keep your smile looking its best? Some common sense caution – like quitting tobacco use and limiting coffee drinks will undoubtedly help, but if you want to maximize your results, a few simple steps can help.
We are here to help you extend your teeth whitening results in our Seattle dental office.
Rinse Your Mouth
If you eat colorful foods like berries, spinach, or pomegranates, simply rinse your teeth afterward with plain water. This small step will remove much of the staining residue before it has a chance to settle onto the teeth.
Better yet, brush your teeth after eating whenever possible.
Drink through a Straw
When you drink staining beverages, consume them through a straw. This will bypass your teeth and prevent staining.
Plan to Touch Up
Let's face it. Eventually, stains will begin to develop again. It could take weeks or months, depending on your diet and lifestyle. We offer touch-up kits to make it possible for patients to enjoy white, bright smiles for a lifetime.
