Tips to maintain teeth whitening results?

  • 7 years ago

Just had teeth whitening. I love my new white smile. The dentist offered some tips for keeping the teeth white but none seemed that innovative. Anyone who's had laser whitening found something that keeps the teeth looking white for long periods of time. Don't have the money to do this every year!

There are some simple tips that you can follow to maintain that perfect white teeth of yours. Rinse your mouth or brush your teeth each and every time you finish taking your meals. Use toothpaste that has whitening properties. Now comes the difficult part. It is obvious that you have spent a handsome sum for the procedure of teeth whitening. So take some efforts to maintain that. Stop drinking coffee, if you cannot I and simply cannot get rid of the habit, drink with a straw. If possible avoid using lipstick as certain types of lipstick can stain your teeth and cause discoloration. DO NOT SMOKE.Smoking is a major cause of discoloration and continuing the habit quickly stains your whitened teeth.

I have recently done a smile makeover procedure from Dr. Stephen Phelan of Oakville, three months before I have attended a teeth whitening procedure too. But I was no so satisfied with the procedure as it made my tooth more yellowish. May be the tooth care products I used affected me in reverse.

I'm using Listerine whitening and crest tooth paste... my teeth look good even if it passed like 6 months. Also, you should not drink colored drinks like Pepsi, Fanta and co, coffee, not smoking.

Some teeth whitening solutions only cost around $40 and the gel can last for 2 years, $20 a year isn't bad...

sammiefield - curious why you'd recommend this kit. It's not really free

If you really want your laser whitening effects to stay profound for a long time- then consider your teeth like a white t-shirt. Anything that you wouldn't want staining a white t-shirt don't subject your teeth too. Also, make sure you're having a cleaning at least 2x per year and this will help as well.

Well you could always try out some of the new products out there. I came across a teeth-whitening kit free trial just the other day and it worked great, both for causing whiteness and for maintaining it.

Here's the site where I applied, not sure if it's still available, but go give it a try: www.illumi-brite.com/

I recommend the following to maintain your new BriteSmile: Brush your teeth three to four times daily, or after each meal; floss daily. Use a whitening toothpaste and a soft bristle toothbrush. Visit your dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups (recommendation: every 6 months) ---------------- Aaren

I have never had "laser" whitening. I use the whitening gel by Dr. Collins, and I maintain my white teeth with Dr. Collins "All White" toothpaste. I got it as a freebie when I ordered the gel a long time ago, and fell in love with it. I drink alot of coffee and tea, this works well for me. My teeth are super white :) Hope this helps!

After whitening treatments specifically in-office treatments the teeth are more susceptible to taking on stain within 48 hours after the procedure. During this time I recommend that our patient do not eat or drink anything that may stain a white t-shirt. As far as maintenance goes I like the ampoules in addition to the whitening trays which can be use to touch up after the procedure. With any of the procedures at-home or professional it is very important to be supervised by a dentist, there is a point of saturation in which teeth will no longer whiten and your dentist can determine if you are at that point.

Hi, For anyone who would like to try something unique to help keep your teeth whiter you might try BriteShots. It is not a whitener, but is a peppermint teeth rinse to help prevent teeth stains. I use it after coffee, tea, etc.

The best thing is Gosmile which is what most movie stars use. You'll want the daily ampoules and brush on one ampoule daily and it will keep your teeth white.

Isn' that a bit expensive? If you mean the B1 Whitening System that costs at least 50 dollars for 10 days,it means you'll need about 150 dollars for a month?? You'de better do a tray gel once in a while.
