How to Extend the Results of Teeth Whitening

Nothing can improve your appearance quite like a dazzling smile full of bright, white teeth. At Dr. Azer VIP Dentistry in Newport Beach, California, Soheir Azer, DDS, is an expert in whitening teeth.

But, Dr. Azer wants to do more than just give you a bright smile at the office. She wants to help you keep your smile shining in the weeks and months to come. And that’s exactly what this blog is all about. Here are some tips to help you keep flashing those pearly whites day after day.

Use a whitening toothpaste

After Dr. Azer whitens your teeth with her professional-grade products, over-the-counter products can still play a role, namely toothpastes that have whitening agents in them. While it’s important to ensure, first and foremost, that your toothpaste tackles plaque and truly cleans your teeth, there are plenty of products that excel in both cleaning and whitening.

By using one of these toothpastes at least twice a day, you can help keep both harmful bacteria and stains away.

Watch what you drink

While there are numerous foods that can stain your teeth, what you drink often does more damage in terms of staining. From that cup of jo in the morning to that glass of red wine in the evening, these liquids can be powerful stainers.

If you’re drinking coffee, tea, wine, or sodas with artificial colors, you can help reduce staining by doing the following:

By taking these steps, you can still enjoy your beverages and help prevent staining at the same time.

Watch what you eat

If you eat anything that can stain your teeth, such as berries, foods with soy sauce, or pasta with red sauce, rinse your mouth with water afterward. Or, if you’re able, brush your teeth.

Quit using tobacco

The nicotine in tobacco products is a true enemy of white teeth. By stopping tobacco use, you can help keep your teeth white, and you can also improve your overall health.

Keep up with regular cleanings

Your daily, at-home care is important for maintaining white teeth, but you shouldn’t forget the power of those twice-annual cleanings with Dr. Azer. When Dr. Azer gives your teeth a professional clean and polish, she removes hard-to-reach plaque and tartar and tackles stubborn stains before they have a chance to take hold.

If you want your teeth whitened, or if you want more guidance on keeping your teeth white after a treatment, call 949-274-7233 or book an appointment online with Dr. Azer VIP Dentistry today.
