Whitening your teeth can give you instant results, but you want to maintain these results for as long as possible. No matter how you whiten your teeth, there are ways to keep your teeth white after whitening. Read on to learn more.
After you have whitened your teeth, you want to keep your teeth clean. One way to do so is rinsing your mouth right after eating or drinking anything. This can remove any food or drink that may stick to your teeth after consumption. Removing this food and drink can help your smile stay white. Not only should you rinse with water after eating and drinking, but you should also drink plenty of water throughout the day. Using tobacco or smoking is bad for your oral health and stains your teeth, so avoid these habits if possible. Other substances that easily stain teeth are drinking wine, coffee, and tea. If drinking an acidic beverage, use a straw. Finally, opt for foods like leafy greens, celery, strawberries, and apples, as these are good for your teeth.
Maintaining your oral health is a promising way to keep your teeth white. Be sure to brush at least twice a day, once in the morning and once at night before bed. If possible, you should also brush after meals. If you're eating on the go, bring a toothbrush and toothpaste with you so you can brush on the go. Flossing on a daily basis can additionally prevent plaque from building up.
