At our dental practice, Tiba Dental, many patients come to see us to receive tooth whitening from our dentist, Dr Abdelhamed Tamara. However, after teeth whitening Brooklyn, you will want to make sure that you avoid certain foods so that your teeth will stay as beautiful and as white as they can, for as long as possible.
Once you have had your teeth whitening Brooklyn, you will probably want to become particularly careful about what you eat in terms of avoiding foods that can cause your teeth to once again develop tooth stains. There are certain foods and habits that are well known to cause tooth stains, and which you will want to avoid to keep your teeth looking as white and as bright as the day they have been whitened. To begin with, cigarette smoking is a strong cause of tooth yellowing and staining. There are also many different foods and beverages you may want to avoid. Both coffee and tea are associated with tooth staining. You may want to limit the amount of coffee or tea that you drink. Tea is usually associated more strongly with tooth staining, so if you feel you want to drink one of these beverages, coffee may be the better way to go. You will also want to avoid drinking brightly-colored sports drinks or colas. These drinks are strongly associated with tooth staining. Even though brightly colored berries, such as strawberries and blueberries, are very healthful, you will want to avoid eating them in large quantities, as well. You will also want to avoid eating brightly-colored candies that contain food dyes, as they too will cause your teeth to become stained. Of course, there will be times when you want to have these food or drinks. When this occurs, you should try to brush your teeth shortly afterwards to minimize any staining effect.
