Teeth whitening at home

It is a whitening that we can carry out at home thanks to some splints that we will place in our mouth. We will have to let the splints act for the time that the dentist has prescribed. This method is very comfortable and can also be combined with in-clinic whitening by photoactivation to achieve even better results.

Tips to keep your teeth white

The effect of teeth whitening by photoactivation usually lasts a average of two years, but it will also depend on your habits and how you take care of your teeth. The following tips can be applied to any of the aforementioned whitening.

After having teeth whitening, our teeth are going to be very susceptible to capturing the pigments of the food or drink that we take. For this reason, we must try to avoid, as far as possible, the intake of some types of food and drinks in the next 48 hours.

  • Foods with dark colors such as beets, spinach, or blueberries.
  • Dark colored drinks like coffee, tea or red wine and all that drink that has dyes.

It is also recommended avoid tobacco: Nicotine is an agent that causes a great coloration in the teeth. Especially if we have just had a whitening.

In addition to being careful with the food we eat, we must not forget to maintain a correct Oral hygiene. Accompanying our brushing after meals with dental floss and mouthwashes. And go to the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
