If you have recently whitened you’re smile, you’re probably wondering how to maintain those wonderful results. Everyone likes a white and bright smile, right? Well, our dentist, Dr. Amir Nikraz, would be happy to help you maintain those results as long as possible. To help you, he encourages you to do the following things:

-Avoid tooth-staining substances: Tooth-staining substances, like coffee, tea, red wine and cola, can all stain the tooth enamel and darken the smile. It’s best to avoid them as much as possible. But, if you have to drink a dark drink, it’s best to drink it through a straw so you limit its contact with the teeth.

-Avoid tobacco: Tobacco is a major cause of tooth discoloration. It also harms the smile and body immensely. So, it’s best to avoid tobacco use altogether.

-Use whitening toothpaste: Whitening toothpaste can help you maintain your white results because it can remove minor stains from the teeth before they get a chance to set in. This can help you have a whiter smile for a longer amount of time.
