Because many of these foods are high in acidity, consuming them after having a tooth whitening procedure may catalyze a discoloration effect on your teeth sooner than you’d like. Staining your teeth is a quick process, promoted by the foods in your diet. Foods that are dark should be kept to a minimum. If you do consume them, rinse with water or give your teeth a quick scrub with a toothbrush or some gum. Avoid staining your teeth after a tooth whitening procedure and be sure to take the necessary precautions to maintain a white smile. The longer you continue to keep your teeth white, the less often you need to worry about visiting the dentist.
