Making Your Whitening Treatment as Successful as Possible

Posted in Teeth Whitening

If you’ve taken the time out of your busy schedule to whiten your teeth, then you want your treatment to give you the best results possible. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you want the whitest smile in the least amount of time:

Have Your Teeth Cleaned

A professional dental cleaning will remove superficial stain and tartar, making your teeth naturally whiter and removing particles that would otherwise interfere with the whitening gel’s contact on your teeth. 

Don’t Smoke or Use Tobacco Products

Tobacco products create some of the most severe dental stain. If you’ve never had a good enough reason to quit smoking or using dip tobacco, you’ll want to now. Otherwise you won’t enjoy teeth that are as white as they really could be. 

Avoid Dark Liquids

Tea, red wine and coffee may be a part of your daily routine, but they have dark tinted particles that will re-stain your teeth. If you’re in the middle of whitening, it’s important to avoid these liquids so that new stains don’t develop deep in the pores of your teeth. If you must have that cup of coffee, drink it through a straw (to limit tooth contact) and rinse thoroughly with water afterward.

Your dentist can offer you different types of whitening treatments depending on how quickly you want results. Both in-office and take home whitening options can be maintained regularly, giving you results that last for several years. By taking these few important steps, your whitening treatment will be as dramatic as you want it to be. Call your dentist for information and pricing on teeth whitening options.
