Get More Mileage from Your Teeth Whitening

Do you have a special event like a wedding or class reunion coming up soon and want to look your best? 

Professional teeth whitening in Fort Collins, CO is an affordable cosmetic dental treatment that delivers excellent value. Whether you choose in-office power whitening or a customized take-home kit, teeth whitening is affordable and provides stunning results in a short time.

Get the Most out of Teeth Whitening

You’ll love the fresh, bright look of your newly whitened smile! You will feel confident about your appearance, and your whole outlook can change. So go out and show off your beautiful smile, but keep these tips in mind to maintain the results for as long as possible.

  • Avoid foods that stain your teeth – Keep your smile bright by avoiding foods that are known to stains your teeth. Coffee and red wine are notorious culprits, but there are many others; dark berries, beets, balsamic vinegar, tomato sauce, and some curries are a few to avoid. You don’t necessarily have to eliminate these foods from your diet completely. But if you do consume them, rinse your mouth or brush afterward to minimize their staining effects.
  • Stop using tobacco products – Smoking is bad for your general health, and it’s terrible for your oral health. It’s almost impossible to maintain a white smile if you smoke or chew tobacco. These habits cause brown staining and yellow teeth and can quickly undo the results of your teeth whitening treatment. 
  • Schedule teeth cleanings every six months – Plaque and food debris build up on your teeth over time and will dull your newly whitened smile. Brushing twice a day and flossing once removes a lot of this buildup, so commit yourself to excellent oral hygiene. Then, back up your at-home efforts with teeth cleanings every six months that remove what your toothbrush can’t and leave you with a sparkling, fresh smile.
