Tips for Keeping Your Teeth White

How to Keep Your Teeth White After the Teeth Whitening Treatment

At Arbutante Dental in Spring Lake, we want to help you maintain a bright, white smile long after your teeth whitening treatment. Here are practical tips to keep your teeth looking their best:

1. Maintain a Consistent Oral Hygiene Routine

Brush your teeth at least twice a day using fluoride toothpaste. Brushing helps remove surface stains and plaque buildup that can dull your smile. Don’t forget to floss daily to clean between teeth where stains can accumulate.

2. Be Mindful of Staining Beverages and Foods

Certain foods and drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored sodas can stain your teeth. Limit your consumption of these beverages and foods, and when you do indulge, rinse your mouth with water afterward to minimize staining. 

Swish water around your mouth to help wash away acids and pigments. This simple habit can reduce the chances of stains setting into your teeth.

3. Quit Smoking & Tobacco Use

Smoking is a major contributor to teeth discoloration. The tar and nicotine in tobacco products can quickly yellow your teeth and diminish the effects of whitening treatments. Quitting smoking of course benefits your overall health, but it also helps maintain a bright smile.

4. Use Whitening Toothpaste Sparingly

Consider using a whitening toothpaste occasionally to help maintain your teeth’s brightness. These toothpastes contain mild abrasives or polishing agents that can lift surface stains without damaging enamel. However, avoid using them daily to prevent excessive wear on your teeth.

5. Schedule Regular Dental Cleanings

Professional dental cleanings keep your smile healthy and bright. During these visits, our dental team will remove plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to discoloration. Regular cleanings also allow us to monitor your oral health and recommend touch-up whitening treatments as needed.

6. Protect Your Teeth from Physical Damage

Avoid habits that can damage tooth enamel, such as chewing on hard objects or using your teeth as tools. Damaged enamel is more prone to staining and discoloration. Protect your teeth to maintain their natural whiteness.

7. Consider Touch-Up Whitening Treatments

Depending on your lifestyle, periodic touch-up whitening treatments may be beneficial. Talk to us about touch-up options that can help you maintain your desired level of whiteness between regular dental visits.

I have been a patient with Arbutante, DDS for nearly three years. They are excellent in an emergency (broken crown) and for going cleanings, fillings, etc. Their staff is knowledgeable, professional, and top of all, they are nice people. I highly recommend this group.

I received my first crown ever today. Dr. Joe and his assistant were very friendly and put me at ease. I was impressed with the amount of time spent on sizing my temporary crown. I’ll be back next week for my permanent one which seems fast. The receptionist is always very warm and nice at checkout.
