Aftercare Tips to Maintain a Brighter Smile After Teeth Whitening

25 Feb, 2023 | By nitersnaidoo

At Pearl, we offer professional teeth whitening in Vancouver. A bright, shiny smile isn’t just beautiful; it’s a great way to elevate your confidence and mood. To maintain your teeth whitening investment, we have some tips to keep your smile bright for as long as possible.

1) Watch out for staining

The biggest reason people seek out teeth whitening in Vancouver is to brighten discolouration from food and beverage staining. Over time, heavily pigmented food and beverages like black coffee, red wine, tomato sauce and curry will gradually stain teeth. Avoid heavily pigmented foods and drinks for about 48 hours after professional whitening. Then try to enjoy these foods in moderation, rinsing with mouthwash when you’re done.

2) Use at-home teeth whitening treatments

At-home solutions don’t work as well as LED Teeth Whitening—at Pearl, we get your teeth 2-10 shades brighter in about an hour. However, whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, strips, and even the Wicked White Pen can be fantastic for maintenance after a teeth whitening session. Keep your smile bright and shiny with these handy back-ups.

3) Maintain good dental hygiene

A white smile is a healthy smile. Practicing good hygiene is vital to maintaining great results. That means brushing at least twice a day and flossing once. At Pearl, we can bundle up dental cleaning and teeth whitening so teeth are beautiful and healthy. Visit our promotions page to see how we make dental cleaning and whitening more affordable. Don’t forget—we accept dental insurance for hygiene services.

4) Skip the Citrus

Newly whitening teeth are vulnerable to acidic foods and drinks. Like pigmented foods, try to minimize citrus intake for a few days after teeth whitening to maintain best results.

5) Schedule Touch-Ups 

We suggest follow-ups for dental cleaning and whitening touch-ups every six months to maintain an optimally white smile. Our hygienists also use this as an opportunity to check your health and screen for signs of ailments such as oral cancer, which have been on the rise.
