Do you have coffee or wine stains on your teeth you wish would magically disappear? Well, we have something better than magic! With professional teeth whitening, you can achieve a white smile that makes even the brightest diamond blush. 

Professional teeth whitening in Woodland Hills is long-lasting and effective, but it’s not permanent. Keeping your teeth white and blemish-free takes dedication, even after whitening sessions with your cosmetic dentist. 

Here are five tips for keeping your pearly whites radiant after getting professional teeth whitening. 

1. Brush and Floss Daily 

Brushing twice daily and flossing at least once daily helps control plaque and stain-causing substances from settling on your teeth. 

2. Drink Plenty of Water 

Water washes away leftover food particles and residue, neutralizing cavity-causing bacteria and controlling stain-producing substances.

3. Don’t Smoke or Use Tobacco

Our teeth have microscopic pores that absorb substances that stain our teeth. The nicotine and tar in tobacco products seep through the teeth’s pores and turn them yellow or brown, resulting in a dull and worn appearance. 

4. Avoid Certain Foods and Drinks

Certain foods and drinks can stain teeth, such as wine, coffee, tea, dark carbonated drinks, curry, tomatoes, and citrus. You can keep your teeth stain-free by limiting these foods and drinks in your diet, or by rinsing and brushing your teeth immediately after consuming them. 

5. Get Regular Dental Cleanings and Exams

Regular professional cleanings keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean. Your dentist clears away surface stains, helping you avoid discoloration. Your dentist also offers personalized recommendations for your oral hygiene routine and maintaining your sparkling grin.
