Maintaining Your Bright Smile Following Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening removes stains and improves the appearance of your smile. Your dentist can help you to maintain this look after your teeth whitening procedure.

Key takeaways:

  • Regular teeth cleaning appointments with your dentist removes stains which may discoulor your smile.
  • Drink beverages which can stain tooth enamel like coffee, tea and wine through a reusable straw.
  • When you drink water when enjoying tooth-staining food and drinks, it can help protect you from the staining compounds.

“When you skip your professional teeth cleanings, these stains can accumulate over time, leaving you with a dull or discolored smile. Seeing your dentist regularly for teeth cleanings is one of the best ways to protect your new white teeth!”
