Tips for Keeping Teeth White After Teeth Whitening | Overland Park Family Dentist

Teeth whitening is a simple and popular process. In fact, it’s one of the most requested cosmetic dentistry procedures in the United States. And why not? It’s quick, safe, and painless, and it can be done either in your Overland Park dentist’s office or at home with a convenient kit. What’s not to love? While teeth whitening can help make your teeth look great, though, it’s not a one-and-done solution. You may have to make some changes to keep your smile looking its brightest. Fortunately, we’ve got some handy suggestions that’ll help.

Watch out for staining foods and drinks. You probably already know that coffee, tea, and red wine can stain your teeth, but did you know that some foods can, too? Tomato sauce is an obvious example, but any food or drink that’s likely to stain your shirt might also stain your teeth. Fortunately, you don’t have to go as far as the “white foods diet” you may have heard about on social media, which probably isn’t exactly balanced or healthy, anyway. Just be aware of what you’re eating and always brush after.

Bump up your oral hygiene game. As your Overland Park dentist, we’re always telling you to brush at least twice a day (and preferably after each meal) and floss once a day, but there’s a reason we come back to it time and again: A good brushing-and-flossing routine is one of the best ways you can protect your teeth. And that doesn’t just mean your oral health; it’s also a great way to protect that newly-whitened smile.

Invest in an electric toothbrush. No matter how well you brush, your hand simply can’t move the same way that an electric toothbrush does. The scrubbing action of a good electric toothbrush can be especially helpful in maintaining the whiteness of your teeth. Plus, most of them have built-in timers that let you know when you’ve been brushing for two minutes.

Drink more water. Water helps to keep your whole body hydrated and helps to stimulate saliva production in your mouth, which is your teeth’s first line of defense. Plus, when you can’t brush after eating, sipping on water throughout the day can help to rinse your mouth clear of debris, bacteria, and anything else that might discolor or damage your smile.

Buy some reusable straws. Sure, they’re good for the environment, but did you know that they’re also good for your oral health, too? Sipping directly from a cup or mug exposes your teeth more directly to whatever you’re drinking, which, in the case of potentially staining beverages, can be harmful for those newly whitened teeth.

Don’t smoke or use tobacco products. There are plenty of compelling health reasons to give the old heave-ho to smoking or any other tobacco products, but if those reasons aren’t enough, just know that tobacco use can also wreck that beautiful new smile.

Consider touch-up treatments. Some teeth-whitening procedures may need to be touched up annually or even every six months. Before you embark on a whitening procedure, talk to your dentist about what the best way to maintain it will be, and stick to whatever plan the two of you work up.

Keep your bi-annual dental cleaning appointments. Aside from brushing and flossing every day, the best thing that you can do for your smile is to come see your Overland Park dentist regularly. If your newly-whitened smile looks the way you’ve always dreamed, that’s all the more reason to take good care of it by coming to see us often!
Whether you’re looking to schedule a teeth whitening procedure, just want to learn more about the process, or need to schedule that appointment we just mentioned, you can do all that and lots more by calling Watts Family Dental at (913) 338-3384 today!

  1. Thank you for warning me about things like tobacco products and other food and drink you should avoid after teeth whitening. The holidays have done a number to my teeth and I want to fix these stains as soon as possible before I return to work. Once I visit a dentist and ask them to help me with whitening, I’ll make sure to avoid these things you told me.

  5. I had no idea that the teeth’s first line of defense is the saliva which can be more productive when you drink more water. My teeth have been kinda yellow for a while because I liked to drink tea every morning, but I want my teeth to look nicer. I might make an appointment with a professional that will be able to help me whiten my teeth.

  6. Get your ex husband/wife back Quickly & Permanently.
    My name is Shannon Mattingly from USA. My husband left me for another woman. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..

  18. I TESTED POSITIVE FOR HSV-2 A FEW MONTHS AGO.
    At first, Yes, I was devastated thinking I have an incurable STD for life. After doing hours of research I quickly realized genital herpes is a filthy parasite that just likes to hide in your body. Yes, There’s no “medical cure” but that doesn’t mean your body can’t get rid of it. I literally flush it out of my system with the help of Doctor Azuka, A natural herbal medicine which I ordered after doing some research. And now I’m HSV-2 negative, I never believed it until my doctor finally gave me the test results and behold I was HSV-2 free. I’m so glad that I found you, Doctor Azuka. Thanks so much for your goodness I’m grateful. You can also get your help from him through his
