Drink Plenty of Water
Chase dark liquids such as black coffee or red wine with water. It takes 30 seconds for the pigment to penetrate, so drinking water alongside your coffee or wine will help to wash any would-be stains away. Shop our whitening kit here
Avoid Certain Foods
Believe it or not, dark, sticky foods (especially when hot) can deeply penetrate the teeth, making for more intense staining. A few foods that qualify: balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, tomato sauce, cranberry sauce, and chocolate syrup. And one of the worst offenders? Barbecue sauce. “It’s dark, hot, and sticky, so it’s a triple whammy,” he says.
Opt for a Straw
It sounds silly, but drinking highly pigmented beverages (think coffee, red wine, and soda) through a straw helps prevent from coming into contact with your teeth and mucking up any whitening work you’ve been doing. You could also swear off those drinks altogether … but that might be even tougher to keep up!. Book your 30-minute session.
