Why would you consider whitening your teeth?
As we age and go through life, our teeth begin to show signs of wear and tear. Even if you are consistent with brushing your teeth twice daily you can still see some stains after years of different foods, drinks and lifestyles. In some cases, professional teeth whitening may be an ideal choice to restore the brilliance of your smile.
Even after you've had your teeth professionally whitened you will need to keep up with a good oral hygiene routine in order to help protect yourself from serious dental diseases and decay.
How safe is the whitening process for my teeth?
No matter which tooth whitening option you go with you shouldn't whiten your teeth any more than once a year. If you whiten your teeth too frequently, they will likely become translucent and more sensitive.
Once a year teeth whitening can help you maintain a white, natural-looking smile while minimizing sensitivity.
Are the results of my teeth whitening permanent?
In order to have your teeth whitening be as successful as possible you should follow the instructions very carefully. This will not only help you achieve a bright smile but also minimize the chance of sensitivity. You need to quit smoking right away if you do. Use whitening toothpaste and refrain from drinking anything dark to keep your smile bright. Your dentist will be able to help you decide which option works best for your lifestyle and needs.
Along with taking the steps listed above, you should also ensure that you visit your dentist once a year in order to help keep your smile looking bright.
