How to brush your teeth after whitening

We’re all born with white teeth, but because we don’t maintain its whiteness, they end up discolored. Discolorations are caused by several factors such as smoking and drinking coffee. As young kids, as long as we brush our teeth regularly, our teeth stay white. So, with the same principle, adults can maintain their white teeth the same way.

For people with discolored teeth, it is best to undergo teeth whitening. Maintaining your newly whitened teeth is not difficult but it does need discipline. You need to brush your teeth after every meal and using a whitening toothpaste can also help in maintaining the whiteness of your teeth. Make sure you brush your teeth after meal and not a few hours later. The effectiveness of brushing also depends on the length of time you leave your teeth stained by the foods you consume. If you wait for a couple of hours before brushing, your teeth had already been soaked with discoloring chemicals found on your food and if you keep up with this, you may still end up with the same discolored teeth you started out with. Also, use a mouthwash when you can so you would kill 99.9% of bacteria living in your mouth.
