What Should I Eat After Teeth Whitening?

FTER TEETH WHITENING

Whether to remove stains, blend implants with your original teeth, or touch up an already stunning smile, teeth whitening treatments bring full brightness and excellence to your mouth. Such treatments provide comprehensive color changes that can last for years, but only if you take proper care of your teeth after the procedure. By keeping to the following dietary tips for the first two days, you can preserve the color and health of your teeth, keeping them beautiful for the long stretch.

The process of teeth whitening keeps going longer than only a couple of seconds since the bleaching material is still working after the treatment. Because of this reason, after teeth whitening, Signature Smile recommends to avoid certain foods for 10-14 days and keep a “white eating routine”.

Although our dental specialists at Signature Smile,River Oaks give our patients precise data about these tasks, we collected our tips on a virtual paper, so our patients can check at any time what it is advisable to eat and what is not.

HOW LONG DO YOU HAVE TO WATCH WHAT YOU EAT AFTER A TEETH WHITENING? 

One of the first questions we get after a teeth whitening procedure is how long do you have to watch what you eat? As a rule,  you must be cautious about what you eat during the initial 48 hours after whitening, as your teeth are especially porous during this period, making them vulnerable to damage and discoloration. Kindly try to talk with your dentist for a more nitty-gritty timetable for after your teeth whitening.

What does White Diet mean?

It is quite simple as its name shows, it is allowed to consume mainly white foods, like chicken, turkey, fish, rice, eggs, baked goods. The point is that we shouldn’t eat foods with strong colored pigments as long as the whitening material is still in progress – as they could change the (wished) color.

There is nothing to worry about as it is not a classic diet, so you can eat almost everything as white chocolate and wine exist!

OTHER PIECES OF ADVICE:

Besides sticking to plain, room temperature foods and evading strong pigments, you ought to likewise know about the accompanying:

 

Gather CALCIUM 

Calcium strengthens your teeth, helping them to recover from the mild irritation they experience during whitening. Because milk and most cheeses are light in color, they should not have any negative impact on appearance.

 

TAKE CARE WITH TOOTHPASTE

Use only white toothpaste after whitening, and do not use mouthwash.

 

AVOID SMOKING 

Although this can not be considered as a consumer product, though it is important to mention as smoking can yellow your teeth
