What to Eat after you Whiten your Teeth

After you whiten your teeth, whether professionally at the dentist or at-home, it is best to avoid any foods that would stain a white shirt for 72 hours. This includes:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Cola
  • Red Wine
  • Tobacco Products
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Pesto Sauce
  • Soy Sauce
  • Blueberries, Blackberries, Cherries, Strawberries or other brightly colored fruit

So what can you have? Go for light colored beverages and foods such as white wine, lemonade, clear sodas, alfredo or olive oil sauces, green grapes, bananas and apples. And, of course, the best go to is always water.

If you can’t forego your morning cup of coffee or soda, drink them through a straw and take frequent sips of water in between to minimize the contact with your teeth.
