You’ve invested a lot in attaining that beautifully white and radiant smile. Unfortunately, over time it will gradually darken due to many different factors. Professional teeth whitening systems like the Zoom! 2™ or GLO teeth whitening system used in our Hoboken office will provide the best results possible, both in brightening and longevity, but there are many steps you can take to maximize your results and get the most out of your investment.
When you choose to undergo teeth whitening, Dr. Frank will provide customized bleaching trays for your follow up home care. Using your home system is the best way to keep your whitening results lasting for the long term.
Maintaining great oral hygiene habits is the best thing you can do for your oral health, and it goes a long way to keeping your teeth looking their best as well. Brush and floss after meals using a whitening toothpaste. Using an oral rinse when you can’t brush right away is also recommended. Regular in-office cleanings are a crucial part of a quality oral hygiene routine as well.
One of the most effective ways to prevent stains from happening is to avoid substances that can cause them in the first place. Avoid staining foods and beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, or colas, and be sure to brush or rinse immediately afterward if you choose to consume them. Eating high-fiber foods can help remove build up while you chew. Avoid smoking or tobacco use.
