How to Keep Your Teeth White After Whitening

Availing of our teeth whitening service at Halo Dental will leave you with a bright and healthy-looking smile that you will love showing off. It has been scientifically proven that just the physical act of smiling, even when you don’t feel happy inside, can seriously boost your mood. So, getting your teeth whitened gives you a reason to show them off and will leave you feeling great both inside and out!

One of the common queries that comes up in relation to teeth whitening is the aftercare. When you have your appointment, your dentist will explain this to you, but if you are already curious let’s take a look at how to keep your teeth white after whitening.

The First 48 Hours

The first two days after the appointment are the most important for how to keep your teeth white after whitening. You will want to avoid any foods that will stain your teeth, sticking mostly to a diet of soft white foods and clear drinking. This is because your teeth might be slightly porous and sensitive immediately after the procedure and this is when they are most at risk of staining.

Reduce Dark Liquids

We all know the offenders when it comes to staining teeth. Tea, coffee, cola, and red wine are the worst. These will stain your teeth over time if you regularly drink them. If you do need a cup of coffee in the morning, consider using a straw so the liquid is not hitting off your teeth. If you are concerned about the environmental impact these have, there are lots of great reusable straw options on the market nowadays. Consider white wine instead of red, or only have a small glass and try to take gulps of water in between sips.

Quit Smoking

One of the easiest ways to keep your teeth white and healthy is to quit smoking. Cigarettes cause teeth to become yellow over time and will also leave you with bad breath. Obviously, these are cosmetic effects of smoking – aside from this you will find it can cause gums to rot and even mouth and throat cancer, not to mention how it can harm other areas of your body. Quit smoking and you will find that your teeth will remain gorgeous and gleaming after the whitening treatment.

Me and my family love coming to this dentist. We never feel uncomfortable. We have had many other dentists in the past but Halo is our favourite. We love the receptionist, Sukhi, she is very kind and always has a smile on her face. She greats everyone with the same kindness and makes them feel good. All around everyone I have met at Halo are kind and make sure you are the number 1 priority. We always feel like we are with family when we go to Halo. I would highly recommend coming to Halo Dental because they care about each and everyone of their clients. We will always continue to go to Halo Dental as long as we live.

My husband had his implants done at Halo and is extremely pleased and happy about them. I got my cleaning done and will recommend them to everyone.

Archana Harit

The best clinic I have been so far. I have been in Canada from last 29 years and could not find a good dentist. Just move to New Westminster two years ago and visited the Dentist in the community. Dr. Bajaj was very very professional and caring. I would recommend her to every one.
