How To Get The Most Out Of Teeth Whitening
Want to brighten your smile and make sure you get the best results? It’s always best to get professional whitening services carried out by a dentist rather than over-the-counter products as these compromise on quality in order to be safely carried out on any individual. What else can you do to make sure your teeth respond well to whitening products?
Schedule a scale and clean
In order for the whitening agent to work as efficiently as possible, there needs to be a clean surface to apply it to. By getting a scale and clean, this ensures that no buildup is in the way and the whitening agent can evenly reach all areas of your smile.
Use a straw
While it may sound a bit over the top, drinking through a straw can drastically limit the amount of contact stain-filled liquids, (like coffee, tea or soda), have with your teeth. This means your whitening results will last longer!
Avoid staining foods
Certain foods hold a higher risk of staining your tooth’s enamel. These include tomato sauce, curries, berries etc. We understand that it’s not possible to cut these foods out of your diet completely, but you can reduce and make sure to rinse your mouth out with water regularly after consuming these foods.
Discourage the buildup of new stains by using whitening toothpaste during the course of your treatment and after. Unsure of what toothpaste to use? Our dentist can help you figure it out during your appointment.
Unfortunately, as time passes by, it’s inevitable for your teeth to soak up stains. To tackle this, you’ll need to do regular touchups as directed by our dentist to keep your smile looking whiter for as long as possible.
