It's World Smile Day today, so I wanted to help you celebrate it with a smile and healthy, gleaming teeth!
On a recent lunch break, I experienced my first ever Teeth Whitening Treatment, courtesy of the ever brilliant, leading teeth whitening product brand, Diamond Whites which I was luckily enough to test run myself, with fantastic results!
After less than 45mins, I left the Diamond Whites event with beamingly white teeth which I was more than happy to show off on social media, including Snapchat, hence the screenshot images in this post.
Shortly after my blinding treatment, I decided to look up the after care of how to keep teeth brilliantly white. Here's the catch!
To make your new smile last as long as possible, you must take care of your teeth following your treatment, to ensure you provide the best environment for it to flourish.
Here's how, in 7 not so easy steps!
1. Follow a strict ‘white diet’ following your in order to avoid any potential for staining or discolouration of your teeth. As the stain removal procedure opens the pores of your teeth, it is recommended that you follow the white diet for 48 hours immediately after your treatment in order to give your teeth time to readjust.
The white diet means you can only consume white or clear food stuffs to minimise any possibility of staining. You should also avoid items with a high acidity level such as oranges and lemons, very hot or very cold food, dairy products (other than skimmed milk), food containing wheat (bread and pasta) and anything that you might think would leave a stain on clothing such as bolognese.
Meat/fish: turkey, chicken, white fish, Quorn
Fruit/vegetables: bananas, cauliflower, white beans, potatoes but not chips
Carbs: white pitta bread, white rice
Cereal: rice crispies
Sweets: white chewing gum
Dairy: skimmed milk
Soft drinks: still or sparkling water, tonic water, lemonade
Alcohol: vodka, gin, white wine, white rum
Only brush your teeth with white toothpaste, do not use coloured toothpaste.
Do not use mouthwash or smoke for at least 24hrs
