Did you just receive a professional whitening treatment from our dentist, Dr. Nattiv? If so, you’re probably wondering how to maintain the results for as long as possible. Fortunately, there are things you can do to maintain your new white smile, and our dental team is happy to tell you how!

First, use a whitening toothpaste to remove the surfaces stains from your teeth regularly. The whitening toothpaste will remove the stains before they have a chance to seep into your chompers and create more stubborn stains.

Second, rinse your mouth with water right after you consume something that can stain your chompers. Usually, anything that can stain fabric can also stain your smile. Don’t brush your teeth right after eating, because your mouth might be acidic and your teeth can wear down faster during this period.

Third, use a straw when you drink a beverage that can stain your teeth, like coffee, tea, soda, and red wine. If you use a straw, the beverage will avoid your teeth altogether, which can lessen your chances of getting a stain or two.
