How to Maintain White Teeth After Professional Teeth Whitening

couple brush their teeth together to maintain professional whitening treatments.

Professional teeth whitening is so effective, your teeth can brighten up to eight whole shades in just one treatment. So how can you make your results last as long as possible?

Here are our top three tips to help make your professional teeth whitening treatment results last.

1. Brush & Floss Consistently

One of the best ways to maintain the results of your whitening treatment is to make sure you brush and floss your teeth twice a day. Brushing and flossing ensures you are keeping your teeth and gums free of plaque and bacteria, and can lift stains before they set in.

2. Avoid Certain Foods & Beverages

Some foods and beverages stain more than others, including coffee, tea, wine, dark berries, and tomato sauce. Opt for tooth-friendly foods and beverages, like crunchy fruits and vegetables, protein, and water to stretch out the results of your whitening treatment. If you do indulge in coffee every now and then, try to drink it with a straw to limit contact with your teeth.

3. Avoid Tobacco Products

Tobacco and smoking are very harmful to your overall health, and can be especially damaging to your teeth, giving them a yellow/grey appearance. You should avoid tobacco not just for your teeth, but for your overall health.

How Long Does Professional Teeth Whitening Last?

Your results should last you up to 1-2 years, especially if you stick to the tips above. The results of professional teeth whitening are often better than that of over-the-counter products, because they use stronger ingredients.
