Maintenance Is Key: How to Maintain Your White Smile This Holiday Season
- Posted on: Dec 15 2016
Whether it’s for your family holiday card or to prepare you for your big holiday party, nothing will make you look more put together than having a white and bright smile this season. If you have had your teeth professionally whitened by Dr. Paul Peterson but want to make sure that they stay white and bright all season long, there are a few easy and simple tips that you can try. From trying a whitening pen to drinking more water, this article will discuss a few of the ways that you can maintain your white smile far past the holidays.
1.Try a Whitening Pen
After you have your teeth professionally whitened by Dr. Paul Peterson, you will receive a whitening pen that you will be encouraged to use. However, as one of those things that many patients simply forget to use, a whitening pen won’t do you any good if you never use it. As a great way to protect your teeth against surface stains caused by food, smoking, and beverages, a whitening pen is a lifesaver. In order to use it effectively, simply apply it directly to your teeth after every meal or if you drink a beverage other than water.
2. Try Whitening Toothpaste
Another great way to keep your white teeth white through the holiday season and beyond is to try replacing your normal toothpaste with an over-the-counter whitening toothpaste. Containing hydrogen peroxide and fluoride, over-the-counter whitening toothpastes are a great way to remove surface stains that have built up on your teeth throughout the day.
3. Drink More Water
Water is not only great for the entire health of your body, but water is also great for your teeth as well. By helping you to create more saliva (which protects your teeth from germs and bacteria accumulating), water washes away food and beverages that may lead to teeth staining.
Nothing will help you to show off your personality quite like a picture of you with a big, white and wide grin on your face. And, in order to maintain your professionally whitened smile all season long, you can try using the tips listed above.
