How to Maintain Your Professional Teeth Whitening Results

How to maintain your teeth whitening resultBecause professional teeth whitening is an investment, you want to protect that investment and extend your results for as long as possible.

Refresh your smile with a Philips Zoom in-chair treatment every year or two as needed. Plan to schedule a checkup every six months to polish away any new stains from the foods you eat.

Oral Hygiene Routine

Brush twice and floss once a day—and especially after eating and drinking teeth-staining foods and beverages. Did you know many toothpaste and mouthwash brands on the market contain dyes that can stain your teeth?

If you’re considering a whitening treatment, we recommend switching from coloured mouthwash and toothpaste to ones that are white or clear. Additionally, choosing brands that contain a whitening agent can help you maintain a bright smile.

Professional Checkups

Visit your dentist twice a year for checkups and cleans.

Avoid Tooth-Staining Foods & Drinks

Reduce your consumption of teeth-staining drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, and foods, including tomato sauce and blueberries. If you choose to indulge, simply rinse your mouth with water afterward.

Choose Tooth-Friendly Foods

Apples, celery, and cheese have proven benefits for the health of teeth.

Refrain From Smoking

Cigarettes and other tobacco products can instantly stain your pearly whites. Of course, kicking the habit is also good for your health. Ensuring your newly whitened teeth stay that way could be an effective motivation to quit.
