When you ask people about what they would like to see in their smiles, most will reply that they want whiter teeth. Strangers can see your teeth and tell you how to care for yourself. It can be difficult to keep your teeth white for red wine, coffee, and chocolate lovers.

If you eat certain foods or habits, they can stain your teeth. This can be caused by smoking and drinking darkly colored foods and beverages. Your oral hygiene habits, regular dental visits, and genetics can cause your teeth to turn a sad yellow, brown, or grey hue.

Teeth Whitening Treatments

There are many options for teeth whitening treatment intensity. They vary in cost and effectiveness. These include:

  • Stain removal toothpaste is the most affordable option, but it offers the best results.
  • While they work better than toothpaste, over-the-counter whitening pastes and strips are not as effective as professional treatments.
  • A dentist will usually perform at-home treatment, which can take several visits.
  • In-office bleaching is the best option and takes only one visit.

Teeth whitening is achieved by applying bleach to the surface of the teeth (either hydrogen or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches target stains, breaking them down into smaller pieces to make the color of your teeth more prominent. As a result, your teeth will appear brighter and whiter.

How to keep your teeth white after the treatment

How long the results last depends on what you do right away after teeth whitening. It is especially important to care for your teeth within the first 24 hours following treatment. These are some guidelines for post-treatment care that you should follow in addition to what your dentist recommends.

  • Drinks that leave dark stains, such as red wine, orange juice, beer, and dark sodas, should be avoided
  • Avoid dark-colored foods such as soy sauce and cured meats.
  • Smoking is prohibited, but e-cigarettes are allowed in limited quantities.
  • Avoid using colored toothpaste and mouthwashes such as red or blue.

These guidelines can be summarized as “if it would stain a white shirt it will stain a white tooth.” After a tooth whitening treatment, you should have light-colored lips and a soft, nonacidic texture. These foods would be great choices after treatment and fall within this category:

  • Cauliflower
  • Milk
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • White cream sauces
  • Eggs
  • Whitefish
  • White cheese
  • Chicken Breast
  • Tofu
  • Peeled potatoes
  • White yogurt
  • Clear coconut water
  • Clear alcohol mixed with light mixers such as vodka soda or gin and tonic.

Avoid eating foods that stain teeth for at least twenty-four hours. This will impact the longevity of your treatment. You’ll see a decrease in the whitening of your teeth if you go back to your regular teeth-staining routine after three months. Your teeth whitening will last for at least a year if you maintain your good habits.

Here are some tips to help you with your ongoing care:

  • After eating or drinking any staining food or drink, brush your teeth immediately with water or white toothpaste
  • Keep your mouth clean by brushing, flossing, using mouthwash each morning and night, and following a healthy oral hygiene routine.
  • If you smoke, drink lots of dark drinks, or if you have a lot of dark foods, it is worth having whitening touch-ups at least every six months.

Are Whitening Treatments Bad for Your Teeth?

Professional teeth whitening doesn’t damage enamel so you don’t need to worry about damaging your teeth. Excessive at-home treatments can have a negative effect on your teeth. After a while, it will be obvious that your whiter teeth are the result of cosmetic enhancements. It can be unnerving to see your teeth if they are too white for their natural color.

Because dental whitening isn’t usually covered by insurance, it’s best to learn how to preserve your results as long as you can. This is especially true if you work in an area where white teeth can be an asset such as sales or acting.

A whiter smile can boost confidence, no matter if you are a professional or not. A yellow, dull smile can make you look older and expose any unhealthy habits.

Teeth whitening can be done quickly, effectively, comfortably, and at a reasonable price. Contact our dental clinic if you are unhappy with your smile or would like to improve your confidence.
