Teeth whitening can dramatically enhance your smile and brighten your teeth by several shades. However, maintaining a white smile requires proactive dental care on your part.
Pro Tips for Keeping Your Teeth White
If you have just received GLO professional teeth whitening, there’s nothing you want more than to keep your smile as white as possible. To maintain a bright and healthy smile, we recommend brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice each day and flossing at least once daily.
Brushing and flossing help remove plaque and bacteria buildup on and around your teeth and gums. Not only does this preserve your oral health, but it also keeps your teeth clean and white.
To keep your teeth white, we recommend avoiding acidic and dark-pigmented foods such as chocolate cake, tomato sauce, and dark berries. It is also best to cut back on dark or sugary beverages such as teas, coffees, red wines, and colas.
These foods and drinks can all deposit stains on your enamel, which can be tough to remove. After eating, we suggest that you promptly clean your teeth to prevent any stains from settling.
