Undoubtedly, the best way to maintain white teeth is to have good habits as long as possible. For this it is necessary to avoid:

- The snuff in all its forms

- The dark colored drinks such as coffee, tea, colas ...

- Meals with highly saturated colors such as tomato sauce, saffron, soy sauce, squid ink and in general, fruits and vegetables that are brightly colored.

There dietary pigments that neutralize the bleaching effect. Also taking certain medications can cause our teeth to darken.

These notes mean we do not have to do a "white diet" for the rest of our days, everything must be done with common sense, and when the teeth resume a more yellowish color, go to the clinic for review (assuming that everything is in state of health). You will have a prophylaxis to remove surface stains and the state of the gums is controlled. That's when we make a bleaching or a full memory.

For clinical session will use the high concentration activated by a light bulb LED. Products are safe because they have a neutral pH and include desensitizing agents. The lamp is cold light pulpitis which prevents possible overheating of the tooth.

If times are not respected, the color will recur (return to original color) much sooner than it should.


Home remedies for teeth whitening
