So, you just went through a teeth whitening procedure, and are in love with your new smile! If you would like to keep it that way, there are a few suggestions Cline Dental has for you:
- Wine- stay away from white and red wine after a teeth whitening procedure. Wines contain staining agents that put your white smile at risk of discoloration.
- Tea- According to professionals, teas can stain more than black coffee. For this reason, Dr. Hunter recommends avoiding teas after receiving a teeth whitening procedure.
- Sodas and Sports Drinks- Sodas and sports drinks are high in sugars and acidity, which causes the tooth enamel to discolor. Frequent consumption of these drinks can also wear away the tooth enamel, causing teeth to become weak.
- Candies- Candies and any type of chewing gum can get stuck between teeth, causing the buildup of bacteria and plaque. Plaque and bacteria can not only lead to yellow, discolored teeth, but dental problems such as gum disease.
You and your dentist want to see you with long lasting, beautifully white smile, and following these tips will get you there! Avoid putting your smile at risk of discoloration and contact Cline Dental for more information about teeth whitening.
