If you have spent time and money whitening your teeth, you need to maintain the results. The best way is to avoid the following, especially for the first three weeks after whitening:
- Red Wine
- Some teas
- Other colored beverages
If you drink soda, coffee, or red wine very often, you will probably want to whiten every couple years to maintain results. Also, if you smoke or use chewing tobacco, whitening may be needed more often.
If you avoid these staining substances, your brighter smile will last much longer. If you need to “touch up” your whitening, you can visit your dentist for in-office whitening (like Zoom!® or Brite Smile®), use custom trays at home, or purchase whitening gel strips like Crest Whitestrips®.
