Can I Begin The New Year With Whiter Teeth?

Everyone wants to have a bright and beautiful smile. However, due to certain lifestyle and dietary habits, our teeth tend to become discolored over time. This is especially the case for those who smoke or have a habit of drinking dark beverages, such as coffee, tea, and red wine. Teeth whitening is an effective cosmetic procedure to rejuvenate your smile.

Teeth Whitening Options

There are many options for whitening your teeth, from over-the-counter products to professional in-office treatments. Before selecting a method, your dentist may recommend what will work best for your smile as well as make sure there are no issues that could affect your treatment or side effects you may experience. Your dentist may also discuss concerns you may have with whitening products, such as tooth sensitivity and enamel erosion.

Patients should consider visiting their dentist before starting any at-home whitening system to ensure their teeth are healthy and strong before beginning the process. Once teeth have been whitened, patients should ensure they maintain good oral hygiene practices by brushing and flossing at least twice a day following meals and avoiding food and drinks that could stain the teeth. This includes wine, coffee, tea, dark-colored sodas, sports drinks, berries, and more.

Professional-strength whitening products give great results in just one visit. Custom take-home trays can also be used after an in-office treatment to enhance results at home. These custom-fit trays are made from impressions of your mouth to ensure an even distribution of the whitening gel, making for a more comfortable process.

After receiving a professional treatment plan, patients should see their teeth lighten by several shades within a few weeks of treatment. If whitening results are minimal or not visible at all, patients may want to consider a different treatment option.

Benefits of Undergoing Professional Whitening Treatment

There are many benefits to professional teeth whitening, including the following:

  • A brighter smile
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Better oral health
  • Faster results than at-home treatments

At-home whitening kits allow for gradual improvements over time, while professional treatment at our office allows for visibly whiter teeth in just one visit. It also prevents the risk of tooth sensitivity and gum damage that can come from using store-bought whitening trays or strips.
