Teeth Whitening | Chagrin Family Dental Care

You finally took the plunge and got your teeth professionally whitened. Now you love to show off your new smile!

But what can you do to make sure it lasts as long as possible? What are the best ways to care for your teeth following whitening treatment?

If you have recently had teeth whitening treatment from your Chagrin Falls dentist, read on to find out the best route to self-care afterward.

Taking Care of Your Teeth after Teeth Whitening Treatment

After most people see the results of their teeth whitening treatment, they have one question: How do I make sure my teeth stay white for as long as possible?

One of the best ways to do that is to stay away from those habits that might have stained your teeth in the first place. If you are a smoker or use tobacco products, quitting those will not only help keep your teeth white but will also be a positive change that can affect your overall well-being.

If you are a coffee or tea drinker, you might want to rethink these two staining beverages. Red wine can have the same impact. If you do indulge in foods and beverages that have the potential to leave stains, be sure to brush immediately afterward.

Another way to keep your teeth white is to follow up in-office whitening treatment with at-home care. We offer a take-home system with custom whitening trays so you can do touch-up treatments to help keep your smile bright.

Stay current with visits to the dentist for twice annual examinations and cleanings.
