Hooray! What a wonderful sight it is when you see your very white smile in your reflection or in a photograph. No more staining, yellowing, or dimming that makes you cringe when you see this facial feature. Instead, you just see a grin that glows! So, what’s next, now that you’ve reached your main goal? Well, for many patients, figuring out how to take care of their smile so that it doesn’t lose its luster is paramount. Not to worry: Your Temecula dentist can help.

Don’t Assume It’s Permanent

First, don’t just assume that the results of your teeth whitening are permanent. Since your teeth are porous, they can stain again. Your Temecula dentist reminds you that discoloration is possible, so give a second thought to a day-long coffee fest, etc., if you’d like to side step stains.

Don’t Forget Your Brushing And Flossing

The main factor in preventing discoloration from happening again is maintaining a clean smile. Every single day of the year, this is something you can achieve with your suggested brushing and flossing. Keep it up and you keep discoloration away.

Keep In Mind: Professional Care Must Remain Consistent!

It’s still true, once you’ve whitened your smile, that your efforts with brushing and flossing will only get you so far in the fight against oral health problems and staining, reminds your Temecula dentist. Keep taking your professional cleanings seriously, so your teeth really remain clean and white.

Hint: You Can Whiten Again

You can always whiten again, receive bonding, or receive veneers. Don’t worry that this was your one and only chance. Do, however, try your best to protect the results you’re so happy with.
