How to Boost Your Teeth Whitening Results

How to Boost Your Teeth Whitening Results

A radiant, white smile is a universal symbol of health and confidence. If you've recently had your teeth whitened, you want to maintain your amazing results. Fortunately, our SPA Dental Group team has several strategies for you to incorporate into your routine to boost the effectiveness of your teeth whitening efforts.

Here are six tips:

1. Maintain a consistent oral care routine

Before booking a professional teeth whitening appointment with our team, we recommend you have a solid foundation of oral care. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing at least once daily will remove surface stains and prevent new ones from forming. Maintaining your checkups with us every six months is another great way to ensure your oral health is optimal.

When your teeth are clean, our professional teeth whitening treatment can penetrate effectively, providing optimal results.

2. Choose a stain-removing toothpaste

While every toothpaste helps eliminate surface stains by using gentle abrasives to cleanse the teeth, look for whitening toothpastes with the ADA Seal of Acceptance for stain removal written on the packaging.

These toothpastes contain tooth-safe polishing agents that enhance stain removal efficacy. Unlike bleaching agents, ADA-Accepted products don’t alter tooth color because they solely target surface stains.

3. Watch your diet

What you eat and drink plays a significant role in maintaining a bright smile. Limit your consumption of highly pigmented foods and beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, and berries, as they can contribute to staining. If you indulge in these items, consider rinsing your mouth with water afterward or drinking from a straw to minimize dark liquids contacting your teeth.

4. Stay hydrated

Water isn’t only essential for overall health but also for maintaining a white smile. Drinking water washes away food particles and acids that can erode your enamel. Staying hydrated also promotes saliva production, which naturally cleanses and protects your teeth.

5. Continue professional whitening treatments

One professional whitening treatment can last you a while. However, you can maintain your results with regular professional teeth whitening treatments at our office. Our treatment uses strong formulations and advanced techniques that give you noticeable improvements quickly, which is an excellent maintenance option.

6. Protect your teeth

Invest in a high-quality toothpaste that removes stains and also strengthens enamel. Enamel shields your teeth from stains and decay, so keeping them strong can keep them white.

If you stay consistent with these tips, you can have long-lasting teeth whitening results while prioritizing the overall health of your teeth.

Whether you’re ready to book a professional teeth whitening or simply need a checkup or a professional teeth cleaning, make an appointment by calling our New York City or Washington, DC, office. You can also book online.
