We know that our Ardmore-area patients want to get the most out of their teeth whitening treatments. We certainly understand that if you've undergone professional teeth whitening at The Office of Doctor Bellisario, you want those bright, white, photogenic teeth to last as long as possible.
Unfortunately, no dental work is permanent, and the results will eventually fade. But you can push that day back and keep your teeth looking as brilliant as possible by taking a few simple steps and exercising some basic vigilance.
Here are a few tips for prolonging your teeth whitening results:
- Above all else, practice good dental hygiene. If you don't, your teeth will eventually show the effects of your apathy. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss on a daily basis and come to our office at least twice a year for cleanings and examinations.
- Limit your consumption of certain foods and drinks that can stain your teeth. We know you won't fully eliminate coffee, tea, fruit juices, sodas and red wine from your diet, but if you cut down on them, your teeth (and the photographs you take) will thank you.
- If you do consume these staining foods and beverages, immediately rinse your mouth with a glass of water. This will wash away much of the material left behind after a meal, thus protecting your teeth as much as possible.
The teeth whitening treatments offered at our office provide you a much more reliable and uniform whitening experience than over-the-counter products. This means you can count on our whitening services to provide you with a shining look you'll love. And you can protect that look by following the tips listed above.
