Get the Most From Your Whitening | Lucio H. Kim, DDS

You finally went ahead and had a professional teeth whitening treatment at our Glendale dental office, and you’re absolutely THRILLED with the results! You’ve gotten everything you expected from your treatment and then some! 

Now you want to maintain that beautifully bright smile for as long as possible. It’s not complicated, but it does require a little effort and thought on your part. If you want to enjoy your new smile for as long as possible, we offer these three easy steps you can take to extend the life of your whitening treatment:

Make Your Bright Smile Last Longer

  1. Brush and floss diligently – You knew we would say that, didn’t you? Of course, this is something you should be doing anyway, every day, twice a day. But it’s especially important to follow a good oral hygiene routine when you’re trying to keep your teeth looking bright.
  2. Avoid teeth-staining foods and tobacco – You couldn’t live without that cup of black coffee you have every morning. While a cup a day isn’t a problem, drinking coffee all day long can stain your tooth enamel. Likewise with dark tea and especially red wine. Limit your intake or change to white wine instead! And tobacco? It’s the absolute worst for your teeth! Another good reason to quit!
  3. Keep up with scheduled dental cleanings – You can remove a lot of stain-producing food debris with conscientious oral hygiene. But there’s nothing like a professional cleaning to restore the whiteness of your smile!
