If you’ve had any sort of whitening treatment done – from over-the-counter solutions to in-office procedures with Dr. David Goldschein – you still need to make sure you’re doing everything you can to maintain that level of brightness in your smile. If you don’t, you’ll quickly end up with a discolored smile once more.

So let’s look at some tips from our team here at Generations Cosmetic and Family Dentistry which you can use to help keep your smile white and beautiful.

Once your teeth have been professionally whitened, you can maintain their bright luster by brushing with a whitening toothpaste formulated with hydrogen peroxide. This is a great way to prevent minor surface stains from setting in.

However, if you do develop moderate to deep stains on your teeth, the mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide whitening agents will not be strong enough to remedy the problem. So, consistent use is essential for maintaining your new white smile.

When you’re shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This logo can only be printed on oral hygiene products that have met the ADA’s rigorous guidelines for safe and effective use in a daily oral hygiene routine.

Keeping your smile white is easy, it just takes time and patience. If you need your smile whitened, or you have questions about whitening solutions, call us today at 813-251-5740.
