A treatment which has become extremely popular over the last few decades is teeth whitening. There are many different procedures and products that you can use to get your teeth back to shining white. However, if you want them to remain this way, you need to follow a few rules that will help to prevent staining. Especially for the 48 hours after you receive the treatment.

Below is some advice to follow, which will help to keep your smile sparkling white for a long time to come.

Consult Your Dentist

There are many over the counter treatments available, but for the best results, you should consult your dentist who will be able to offer professional ones such as Zoom teeth whitening. They will be able to explain the pros and cons of each treatment, as well as give you advice on how you can keep your teeth white by avoiding food and drinks that may stain them.

The First 48 Hours

Once you had your treatment, you should limit the intake of certain foods and drinks for the first 48 hours. As these can stain and dull the whiteness. Beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, and fruit juice should be avoided for a couple of days to maximize the whiteness after treatment. You will also want to avoid acidic foods such as citrus fruits, and sauces can also stain your teeth such as barbecue sauce, red pasta sauce, or soy sauce. You will also need to avoid dark chocolate for a few days as the caffeine in it can also stain your teeth. As well as being careful with your diet, you will also need to clean your teeth correctly. Also adopt the correct oral hygiene regime.

Clean After Every Meal

In an ideal world, you will clean your teeth thoroughly after every meal anyway, but it is sometimes hard to keep up with this habit leading the busy lives that we do. It is vital though that in the first few days after your treatment that you give your teeth a clean every time you eat something, which will help to prevent food particles building up and plaque-forming which will attack the teeth. Ensure that you floss your teeth once a day to remove any particles between the teeth, and you can also use mouthwash to help keep your mouth feeling fresh and clean. If you find that you have eaten something, but you are not able to brush your teeth, then you can rinse your mouth out thoroughly with water which will also help to remove any food particles that remain after eating.

Go For A Touch-Up

Even though you may look after your teeth diligently and avoid as many foods and drinks that stain them as you can, it is natural for teeth to dull over time. However, you can go for a touch-up treatment with your local dentist every six to twelve months, which when combined with an excellent oral hygiene regime will help to keep your teeth shining white for a long time to come.
