Once you have invested your time and money on professional teeth whitening, you want to do what you can to protect your investment. We offer the following suggestions to our patients who have had professional teeth whitening at our Bondi Junction, NSW, dental clinic.

#1—Practise Good Oral Hygiene

Being diligent about brushing your teeth at least twice a day can help keep your teeth whiter and brighter. Brushing can help get rid of surface stains on tooth enamel. Ask your dentist about products you can use at home to help keep your teeth as white as possible.

It’s also important to keep up with twice-a-year dental check-ups and cleans. A dental clean alone will help get rid of stains on your teeth, leaving your smile bright and fresh.

#2—Change Your Lifestyle Habits

If you smoke or use tobacco products, this can have a significant impact on how white your smile is. Tobacco products will leave behind a dark yellow stain that is hard to remove from your teeth with just a toothbrush.

Taking care to avoid staining foods and beverages will also help keep your smile whiter. Drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine stain teeth over time, so if you do indulge, be sure to rinse your mouth with water afterwards.

#3—Use Take-Home Trays to Refresh Your Whitening

Out our Bondi Junction, NSW, dental clinic, we offer both in-house and take-home teeth whitening kits. Our take-home kits include custom whitening trays for maximum effectiveness of the whitening agent. As you notice your smile start to dull, refresh it by wearing the trays for an hour or so every day for about a week.

With professional teeth whitening, you can have a dazzling smile you love to show off. We invite you to contact our dental clinic today to book an appointment.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
