You can’t stop smiling! You finally went ahead with professional teeth whitening treatment at your Chesterfield, MO dentist. You love your new smile and you enjoy being able to show it off.

Now that you’ve had this affordable, popular cosmetic dental treatment done, you want to make sure your investment lasts as long as possible.

Here’s what you can do to make sure your teeth stay as white as possible for as long as possible.

Don’t Revert to Bad Habits

Think about what caused your smile to become less-than-white in the first place. If you are a coffee and tea drinker, those can both cause your teeth to become stained. Wine—particularly red wine—is another culprit. There are also foods that can cause staining, such as curries and berries. If you do indulge in any of these, rinse your mouth after imbibing, then brush your teeth about a half-hour or so afterward.

If you are a smoker, you probably know this can stain your teeth. Consider quitting—and not only for the sake of your smile. Your overall health will thank you as well.

If your smile was a result of natural yellowing that comes with age, the best way around that is to use the at-home kit to maintain your results.

Follow Up with At-Home Whitening Treatments

We also recommend that you follow up your in-office professional teeth whitening treatment with our at-home kit. We will give you custom trays and a whitening gel that you can use on a regular basis at home, at your convenience. You’ll be pleased to see your smile will stay white and bright!
