After a teeth whitening treatment at Arena Family Dental in Worcester, most patients can't resist getting into their car and immediately checking out those pearly whites in the mirror. Teeth are miraculously transformed from dull to bright during one painless session at our clinic. Wanting to hang onto that bright, shiny smile forever is a common feeling but teeth whitening does not last forever. Thankfully with some maintenance and repeat whitening sessions in our office at Arena Dentistry in Worcester, you can keep your teeth looking bright and white forever.
Water, Water, Water!
Sometimes it isn't convenient to brush your teeth after eating or drinking but there is something you can do to ensure your teeth aren't losing their sparkle. Drink water! Water will rinse your teeth and hydrate your mouth which will increase the production of saliva. This will keep stains at bay until you have the opportunity to brush.
Use a Straw!
You can still drink coffee, red wine and cola without the fear of dulling your bright teeth. Use a straw! Using a straw keeps the beverages away from your teeth. This can prevent stains and even decay. It may take some getting used to but it will totally be worth it in the end.
Brushing your teeth twice per day and flossing once per day is a great habit to get into. Also take note of the food and beverages you are consuming. Coffee, tea, red wine, berries, and food with high acid content can cause staining. It's not realistic to deny yourself these items but limiting them, using a straw or rinsing with water immediately following will help reduce staining.
