If you would like to maintain your newly whitened smile, then our dentist, Dr. Alan Nix, is happy to help you. Now, it’s tough to maintain the results for a lifetime, especially if you tend to do things that discolor the smile, but you can maintain the results for a long period of time if desired. To help you do so, our dentist is happy to give you the tips you need. Those tips are to:

-Avoid tooth-staining substances: Some things that cause tooth stains include coffee, tea, cola, red wine, tomato sauce and other dark products you eat and drink. If you have to drink a dark drink, it’s best to do so through a straw so it limits the 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 because it can remove the stains from your teeth each day before they have a chance to set into the tooth enamel. You can talk to your dental team about which whitening toothpaste we recommend using.
