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.

If you have been regretting the fact that you never were able to have your teeth straightened when you were a teen, you should visit us at our dental practice, Tiba Dental. Our dentist, Dr. Abdelhamed Tamara, will be able to provide you with Invisalign invisible braces in Sunset Park, as well as an orthodontic evaluation to let you know what type of orthodontic treatment method will work best for you.

While some patients’ smiles cannot be straightened with Invisalign braces in Sunset Park, many smiles can be treated with this innovative tooth straightening system. Invisalign is often referred to as invisible braces because the clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn. This means that patients are able to attend work and social gatherings without needing to be embarrassed by wearing metal wires and brackets on their teeth. The clear plastic aligners are extremely comfortable to wear since there are no metal parts to irritate your mouth. Additionally, since the aligners are removed for meals, patients are able to eat just about anything they want during the entire treatment period. A patient’s individualized set of aligners is created using CAD/CAM computer technology. The set of aligners can have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it, based on the bite problem that is being corrected. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and will slowly move your teeth into the proper position for the next aligner in the series. When you have finished wearing the last aligner, you will have your beautiful new, straighten smiled. Since the aligners are also removed for you to thoroughly clean and floss your teeth, your teeth will be as beautiful at the end of the treatment process as they are at the beginning.
