How to keep your teeth white
Whitening treatments don't permanently whiten teeth.

If you expose your teeth to foods and beverages that cause staining you may see the whiteness start to fade in as little as 1 month after treatment.

Those who avoid foods and beverages that stain may be able to wait one year or longer before another whitening treatment.

In this article are presented some tips to help maintain your teeth white.

- Avoid the consumption of or exposure to products that stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine. If you do choose to consume beverages that stain, consider using a straw so that the liquid bypasses your front teeth.

- Brush or rinse immediately after consuming stain-causing beverages or foods.

- Follow good oral hygiene practices. Brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss at least once daily to remove plaque. Use whitening toothpaste (once or twice a week only) to remove surface stains and prevent yellowing. Use regular toothpaste the rest of the time.

- Consider touch-up treatments. Depending on the whitening method used, you may need a touch-up every 6 months or after a year or two. If you smoke or drink lots of stain-causing beverages, you may need a touch up more often.
