How to Get the Most Out of Your Teeth Whitening
- Posted on: Sep 15 2018
Having a mouth full of yellow teeth is not exactly what anyone wants, but it’s, unfortunately, something that most people have. If you have always wanted whiter teeth but aren’t sure how to get them that white, then Dr. Lenny Slepchik can help. Here at our office, Dr. Slepchik uses an in-office whitening procedure called Zoom whitening which can get your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in just an hour. And although we will send you home with a visibly whiter smile, there are a few things that you can do to ensure that your teeth stay white for longer. Let’s take a closer look.
The longer that food, beverages, and just plaque in general, sits on your teeth for, the more likely they are going to stain your perfectly white teeth. To help keep your teeth looking whiter for longer, make sure that you are brushing them at least twice a day (preferably more) with an over-the-counter whitening toothpaste.
Do Touch Ups
When you leave our office, we will send you home with everything that you need to do touch-ups whenever you think that you need one. So, if you start to notice that your smile is looking a little bit dingy, then you can use some of the whitening gel and trays that we send you home with and they will help brighten up your smile right away.
Watch What You Drink
You should watch what food you eat, but most importantly, make sure to watch what beverages you drink. For instance, beverages like red wine and coffee are known to stain teeth which can leave you with a smile that looks a little less than white.
Having a white smile that lasts doesn’t have to be a lot of work. By using these three simple tips in this article, you can hopefully help your smile last for longer.
