        Everyone needs a perfect smile. One solution is to make their teeth whiter. A dentist can make someone's teeth whiter with veneer or bleaching. Bleaching is cheaper and faster than veneer but the result is not as permanent as a veneer. Then what needs to be done to make the white result more durable?

These are the things that need to be considered after finishing the bleaching treatment at the dentist.

  • Two weeks after teeth bleaching, shade can be brighter because oxidation still continue, better to avoid colored drinks such as (tea, coffee, wine, soft drinks, etc)
  • No smoking for 24 hours. In the first 24 hours it will stain your teeth.
  • Avoid colored toothpaste or gel, mouthwash, Chlorhexidine, or home fluoride treatments for 24 hours after bleaching.
  • After two weeks, to maintain the whitening result, if the patient wants to drink any colored beverages is better to use a straw and after consuming any colored food, the patient can rinse with more water and avoid smoking.

  • If your teeth become sensitive, your dentist will give fluoride gel or desensitizing agent
