One cosmetic dental treatment that offers excellent value is professional teeth whitening. Treatment is affordable, and you can choose an in-office treatment or at-home whitening to fit your busy schedule and lifestyle.
Get the Most out of Your Whitening
In either case, the result is a sparkling, bright smile that restores a more youthful appearance and gives your confidence a boost. The next question is, how can you extend the benefits of teeth whitening for as long as possible?
It's not difficult to keep your smile bright after whitening, but you may have to commit to making a few changes:
Maintain routine cleaning appointments - Your newly whitened smile can slowly take on a dull appearance as your teeth collect plaque and food debris. Professional dental cleanings every six months removes plaque, leaving you with a fresh, clean smile.
Avoid staining foods - Part of your commitment may involve cutting down on certain food and drinks that stain your teeth. You probably know that coffee and red wine are two culprits, but there's a long list of foods that stain your teeth that you may not be aware of. These include dark berries, tomato sauce, soy sauce, and curries. If you don't want to eliminate these foods from your diet, consider cutting back and be sure to brush or at least rinse your mouth after consuming them.
Use your touchup kit - If you choose take-home whitening, you can continue to use the provided tray and whitening gel to perform periodic touchups at home. If you opt for in-office treatment, talk to your dentist about a take-home kit for maintenance.
