It’s true; teeth whitening has the power to transform your self-esteem.

But what do you do when the results start to fade?

Keep Your Smile Bright

There are many reasons that teeth start to take on a discoloured hue. Drinking red wine, coffee and tea, eating staining foods like curries or berries, tobacco usage, certain medications—though some may be an everyday part of your life, it’s important to recognise that they may take a toll on your oral health.

There are a few easy steps you can take to keep your teeth bright:

  • Brush teeth after having a staining food or drink
  • Be sure to brush twice a day and floss once a day
  • Get your regular checkups

Why Are Regular Checkups Important?

You might not make the connection between the whiteness of your smile and a checkup and clean at first. Think about what it involves, though: the removal of buildup on your teeth is a part of the cleaning our team will perform for you. When this buildup is removed, you’ll notice your teeth feel smooth and look shiny. With no buildup left, you might be shocked at how much whiter your teeth already look!

Touch Up Your Results

Once you’ve had your teeth whitened, you can repeat the procedure at regular intervals. When you notice that your results begin to fade, it’s time to give us a call again. We’ll set you up with a consultation so we can determine if it’s time to embark on a subsequent whitening procedure, letting you love showing off your smile again.
