Having white teeth makes you look healthier and attractive when smiling. It also boosts up self confidence. There are two popular treatments here in Smileway which can do so, namely dental veneers and teeth whitening. This article will focus more on the after care of teeth whitening.

1. Use home kit whitening

This whitening process uses lower-strength whitening gel over several weeks. This results in a more permanent color change due to deeper penetration of gel into the teeth. It can be used as a maintenance product after teeth whitening in the dental clinic.

2. Use whitening toothpaste

Over-the-counter toothpastes help remove some surface stains. Many of these products contain mild abrasives, chemicals, or polishing agents. Unlike whitening gels, they cannot change the natural color of teeth. Therefore, whitening has to be done first, then whitening toothpaste as daily maintenance.

3. Avoid stain food and drinks especially for the first week

It’s so important to try to avoid staining teeth in the first place, especially after whitening. If you take care with foods and drinks that discolor teeth, the results of whitening may last up to one year.

4. Do not smoke

Smoking is one of the worst offenders when it comes to staining teeth. The longer you smoke, the more stubborn the stains become. Smoking also causes bad breath and gum disease.

5. Don’t Forget Daily Maintenance

To help maintain white teeth brush at least twice daily. Even better, brush after every meal and snack. Brushing helps prevent stains and yellow teeth, especially at the gum line. We also need to use floss daily and adjunctively antiseptic mouthwash.

These are some of the steps you can take to have a stronger and healthier tooth. After all, we all want to make sure we are problem free and we can enjoy our life and food for many years. In Smileway Dental Clinic Setapak and Smileway Dental Clinic USJ we take care of your smile because we believe in “Creating Smiles That Matters” in your life. Take care everyone

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
