Ahhh, that feeling of just-whitened, perfectly fresh pearly whites. It’s a look you’ll want people to notice, and a feeling you’ll want to hang on to, right?
When you’ve purchased your teeth whitening kit, you’ve committed to regular whitening sessions, and you’re lapping up the compliments that keep coming your way, you’ll probably want to find out how to maximise your whitening results. And, when it comes to results, there’s something you need to know, and if you’re really serious about keeping your teeth beautifully whitened, you don’t want to miss this advice. Seriously.
To prolong that whiteness for as long as possible, you need to have a strategy around certain consumables. To do that, you’ll want to make some adjustments. At first, it might seem like a big ask, but trust us, if you want to hang onto that glow, this is important.
Here it is: Be mindful of what makes contact with your teeth.
Where there are lots of things you could eat and drink that can potentially stain your teeth, there are some that are particularly keen on undoing your hard work: Here are the big trouble makers for just-whitened teeth:
- Red Wine
- Red/Purple fruit Juices
- Soy Sauce
- Caffeine/Tannin Based Drinks ( Tea, Coffee, Cola)
It’s important to point our that we are not -in any way- saying not to eat or drink these products again- but we are saying is, that if you whiten your teeth before dinner and drinks- red wine is probably not the recommended beverage a committed whitener would choose!
If you do, however, find that the temptation to sneak in a cheeky glass of red or enjoy a tart and refreshing cranberry juice with your beet salad is too much to resist, stay prepared, and pack a toothbrush (preferably one of our organic bamboo brushes!) and make sure you tend to your pearly whites post-dinner. It may take a little while getting used to, but it’s worth it, right?
Natural teeth whiteners you’ll love!
A great way to really maintain whitened teeth is to invest in a tub of our activated charcoal tooth powder. It’s a 100% natural, perfectly simple formula that really raises the roof on oral care. Activated charcoal is used in a number of clinical applications, to absorb and remove toxins from the body. With it’s capacity to grab bacteria and boot it out, deodorise the mouth and gently exfoliate the surface of the tooth enamel without causing damage, activated charcoal is the IDEAL alternative to toothpaste. Best results are seen using charcoal tooth powder once or twice a week.
