I Just Had a Cosmetic Treatment. What Food and Drinks Do I Need to Avoid?

If you want to improve the aspect of your teeth and you are not dealing with major oral problems, then cosmetic dentistry can be of great help. It can fix a wide variety of dental issues, such as stained teeth, minor cracks and chips, and even uneven teeth. 

But, if you want the effects of your cosmetic treatment to last for longer, you will have to follow certain instructions. Your dentist will most likely give you a set of recommendations that will ensure that the healing process goes smoothly and your smile remains bright and healthy for a long time. 

If you are wondering about the foods you should avoid after having a cosmetic dental treatment, then you should keep reading. 

Foods and Drinks You Should Avoid After Dental Cosmetic Treatment

If you want to make sure the treatment is successful, there are some foods you will need to avoid, at least for a while. You have just restored your teeth, so it’s important to make sure the results are the ones you look for. 

Make sure you avoid foods that are too hard to bite on or chew and beverages that stain.

Avoid hards foods such as:

  • Popcorn kernels
  • Almonds and other nuts
  • Ice 
  • Hard candy 
  • Steak 
  • Raw vegetables and hard fruits 

You should avoid any food that might have a negative impact and damage dental work. 

Sticky foods to avoid include:

  • Caramel
  • Taffy 
  • Gummy candy 

These foods are hard to chew and can get stuck to your new teeth. They can also increase the risk of breaking or losing your veneers as they can get stuck to them and make it difficult for you to chew. 

You should also limit the consumption of beverages such as:

  • Coffee 
  • Wine 
  • Cola

Not only will these beverages stain your teeth, but they can also damage them. If you cannot give up your morning coffee, use a straw and rinse your mouth afterward. 

Some foods can stain your teeth too, such as berries, so it's best to consume them in moderation.

Acidic foods can also affect your teeth and it's best to avoid them after cosmetic treatment. We're talking here about foods like lemons, tomato sauce, and curries.
