Summer Smiles: Tips To Keep Your Smile Bright After Whitening

Ah, summer… time for backyard barbecues, poolside parties, sunny vacations, and more! As you get your family ready for summer adventures, don’t forget to schedule a teeth whitening to get your summer smile ready for all of the photos you’re about to take during your travels and activities!

 

While in-office whitening isn’t permanent, it does offer longer-lasting, better results than over-the-counter options. However, you can help keep those pearly whites whiter for a longer period of time by following a few simple post-whitening tips from Dr Olson:

 

  • Brush or rinse immediately after eating or drinking.
  • Drink plenty of water every day.
  • When drinking beverages that could stain, like wine, tea, or coffee, use a straw.
  • Regularly brush with a whitening toothpaste.
  • Floss daily to prevent plaque buildup.
  • Keep regular hygiene appointments! Professional cleaning and polishing can fight discoloration and help your results last longer.
