Teeth whitening procedures can make your teeth shine and give you a brilliant smile to flaunt. Such treatments, however, are not permanent and you may have to get them done at regular intervals of a few months to keep your teeth sparkling white. But if you do not care for your teeth after such treatments, you will end up staining your teeth very quickly and will have to repeat the treatments more often.

Tips to care for your teeth after whitening treatments

It is important to take care of whitened teeth as they may be more sensitive and prone to staining and yellowing right after the treatment. Dentists at Cary Dental share a few tips on what you should be careful about after teeth whitening treatments.

  • Avoid consuming foods that can stain your teeth. These include coffee, red wine, blueberries and such other foods. If you consume any of these liquids, ensure to use a straw so they liquid does not come in contact with your teeth directly.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a gentle soft toothbrush for at least two minutes each.
  • Also, rinse your mouth with a mouthwash immediately after eating sugary and staining foods.
