Congratulations on your newly whitened smile! Zoom whitening was a great choice. Now the question is, how do you maintain your white smile? Keep reading to learn more about certain precautions you can take, and good habits you can implement into your daily routine, to extend the longevity of your whitening treatment and protect your investment.
Unfortunately, many of the things we love to eat and drink regularly can be some of the biggest contributors to stains and the loss of that white color you worked so hard to achieve – some of those being coffee, tea, soda, and red wine. Cutting these out completely and avoiding any other dark colored food or drinks is your best bet for keeping your smile white, but if you can’t live without them, try a few of our favorite, easy tricks below.
At Reimels we know this list of food and drinks to avoid is intimidating, and at the end of the day we’re here to help you be able to keep the things you love in your life. You can still enjoy them in a way that will not have as big of a negative impact on your teeth as they normally would!
If you fear your Zoom whitening results may be at risk for reversal, schedule an appointment with us today and we can help with more tips and tricks, or create a custom tray for take-home whitening touch-ups!
