After you undergo a tooth whitening treatment at your cosmetic dentist, there are certain foods that you can eat—and others that you should avoid—to help maintain your results. Use the following tips to learn how you can change your diet to keep your teeth looking great.
You should only drink water for the first few hours after your treatment to keep your teeth clean. Avoid drinks like tea, coffee, and soda that might stain your teeth. Try not to eat a lot of foods with high sugar or acid contents. Crunchy fruits and vegetables can help you keep your teeth clean. You should also be sure to include plenty of calcium, healthy fats, and lean proteins in your diet.

Dental implants help patients with missing teeth restore the look and function of their smiles. If you are missing one or more teeth, ask your dentist if dental implants might be right for you. This tooth replacement procedure can offer you the following benefits:
Since dental implants are embedded into the jawbone to serve as a new tooth root, they offer the same level of function as natural teeth. Once replacement teeth are affixed to the dental implants, you can enjoy restored function to your mouth that helps you bite, chew, and talk just as you did with your natural teeth.
Even one missing tooth negatively affects the aesthetic appeal of your entire smile. When your dentist places dental implants, though, you can restore the original look of your smile. The replacement teeth can be made to match the color of your natural teeth so you get a bright, beautiful smile you can be proud of.
Decreased Risk of Bone Loss
When you lose teeth, the bone that surrounded those teeth may begin to be resorbed by your body. In addition, the surrounding teeth may shift out of their correct locations. Without proper treatment, this could lead to further bone loss that might negatively affect some of your other teeth in the future. If you get dental implants, you can prevent further bone loss and help preserve your future oral health.
If you take good care of your dental implants, you can expect them to last a lifetime. You should brush and floss your teeth as you normally would to keep food and bacteria from building up and causing infections that could lead to other oral health issues in the future. Be sure to continue to schedule regular appointments with your dentist to get deeper cleanings and checkups.

Studies have shown that people with missing teeth eat fewer fruits and more processed foods. Fruits and vegetables have a lot of vitamins and minerals that help to prevent cancer and heart disease, while processed foods can contribute to a person’s risk of developing these diseases. People with dentures might find it more difficult to chew healthy foods, which is why they often prefer softer, processed foods. Check out this video to learn more about how your teeth can affect your overall health.
