Professional or laser tooth whitening performed by a cosmetic dentist is a much faster and more effective treatment than any tooth whitening method that can be done at home. If you have opted for laser tooth whitening you will know the difference.

After undergoing a tooth whitening procedure most patients experience increased self confidence. You don’t want this effect to fade away, so it is very important to take good care of your whitened teeth.

There are certain guidelines which you should follow if you want to keep your teeth as white as they were on the day you had the tooth whitening procedure carried out. Firstly, cleaning your teeth regularly is a must. You must brush your teeth twice a day with the right sort of toothpaste.

It is also advisable to thoroughly rinse your teeth with mouthwash. Occasional flossing of the teeth is also helpful in maintaining your teeth’s whiteness.

Try to avoid drinks like coffee and tea as these drinks tend to stain your teeth. Finally, visit your dentist regularly so that any further problems can be taken care of at an early stage.
