When teeth are stained or discolored, you may want to hide them when speaking, eating, or smiling in public. A consultation with your cosmetic dentist will demonstrate how teeth whitening can improve your appearance in one brief dental visit.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Your dentist may advise you to have your teeth cleaned to remove dental plaque before whitening. A dental exam will assure that you are a good candidate for the teeth whitening process.
If in office teeth whitening is selected, your teeth whitening specialist will begin by protecting all soft oral tissues; the whitening gel will be applied to exposed dentition; and a laser light will be used to expedite the whitening action. In many cases, you may require only one application to achieve desired results. However, your dental professional will help you determine if you may benefit from a second application during this same appointment. Teeth whitening results can take up to two weeks to achieve maximum brightness.
Maximize Teeth Whitening
Once you have invested in a teeth whitening program, you can maximize the benefit by understanding what causes dental stain and doing what you can to prevent recurrence.
Foods like many berries, tomato based sauces, dark sauces like balsamic and soy, and many other foods and seasonings are prone to stain dentition. Limit them or rinse/brush as soon as possible following consumption.
Coffee, tea, red wine, and cola are some of the beverages that contribute to dental stain. Use a straw so much of the beverage will bypass teeth.
Smoking and smokeless tobacco products contribute to dental stain in addition to being detrimental to overall health.
Make sure you brush and floss every day; see your dentist every six months for teeth cleaning and dental exam.
