If you’ve recently done a teeth-whitening treatment, congratulations! We hope that you like the bright new appearance of your smile, and we hope the treatment lasts for a long time. Here are a few pointers about how you can retain the fresh look of your newly whitened pearly whites.

– Brush twice daily with whitening toothpaste to preserve that bright look. If you’re debating between two or more brands, trust the ones that don the ADA seal of approval.

– Look out for foods that can dim your chompers. Foods like red wine, tea, raspberries, blueberries and heavily colored drinks can lead to discolored chompers.

– Use a straw when drinking drinks that stain so that you can keep your teeth free from dyes that stain chompers. If you don’t have a straw, be cautious!

– Give up smoking, dipping and/or chewing tobacco products. The tar and nicotine in tobacco products such as cigarettes convert chompers to shades of yellow. Scale back your use and your chompers will say thanks!

– Checkup your dentist regularly for cleanings and perhaps whitening. The team at Art & Science Family Dentistry in Woodbury, Minnesota, are authorities in teeth cleaning. Let them help you keep your smile bright.
