If you just received a professional teeth whitening treatment at Robert Madry, DDS, General and Cosmetic Dentistry, you’re probably wondering how to maintain that new, bright, white smile, right? Well, our dentist, Dr. Robert Madry, has some good news for you! There are things you can do to maintain the results for a longer amount of time, and he would be happy to tell you all about them.
The first thing you can do is use a whitening toothpaste. Whitening toothpaste can remove the new stains from your tooth enamel before they settle in and become more stubborn. It doesn’t matter which whitening toothpaste you use, but make sure it has been approved by the American Dental Association.
The second thing you can do is brush or rinse immediately after consuming something that can stain your teeth. This can help you wash away the stain-causing particles quickly and help you reduce your chances of having stains.
The third thing you can do is use a straw when you drink dark beverages. This can help you prevent staining because the beverage will pass your teeth and avoid touching them altogether. This is your best option if you can’t avoid these stain-causing beverages in the first place.
