Aftercare for Laser Teeth Whitening


Posted on 4/12/2021 by Dr. Dani Stansell
Aftercare for Laser Teeth WhiteningYou will definitely return home with a big, broad, and beautiful smile after your laser teeth whitening treatment. And why not? You now have the perfect reason to smile, grin, and laugh without covering your mouth. Your pearly-white, shiny teeth are ready to dazzle the world.

While it is okay to enjoy and celebrate your new-found glory, you must not forget that laser teeth whitening treatment is not a permanent solution for teeth whitening. Its effects are long-lasting (for up to 6 or 12 months) only if you take proper care of your teeth. Here are some things you must do if you're looking to maintain the effects of your laser teeth whitening treatment.

Avoid Drinking Tea and Coffee


Tea and coffee are the most common causes of stains on our teeth. People who drink black coffee every day are at a high risk of developing yellow-brown teeth. The high levels of caffeine and sugar in tea and coffee stain our teeth and gradually erode our enamel. Enamel erosion can also make the teeth appear yellow. After the laser teeth whitening treatment, your dentist will advise that you avoid drinking tea and coffee on a regular basis or at least reduce the number of cups per day.

Use Teeth Whitening Toothpaste


High-quality teeth whitening toothpaste contain bleaching agents and active ingredients like activated charcoal that help remove stains from your teeth. They are specially formulated to promote your oral health and keep your teeth white, healthy, shiny, and plaque-free.

Quit Smoking


Not only is smoking bad for the health, but it also stains and discolors your teeth. Chain smokers often have dirty, brown teeth. The tobacco in cigarettes stains the teeth and causes them to become black or brown. If you are a smoker, then it is high time to quit smoking because if you continue to smoke after laser teeth whitening treatment, there will be no reason to even go through this procedure. Your teeth will quickly get stained again.

Practice Healthy Eating


If you want to maintain this radiant white smile, then you must switch to a healthy diet. Processed foods and fast foods have high levels of sugar. This sugar will attract acid-producing bacteria on your teeth, and because of the acid, your teeth will quickly become yellow again. You should avoid drinking soft drinks, sugary beverages, alcohol, tea, and coffee and instead opt for fresh lemonade or water. Try to eat more dairy products so that the calcium in these foods can help restore your enamel.
