You don’t have to rely on less-than-stellar store bought teeth whitening systems. Our team can offer a professional approach, one that you can use from the comfort of your own home to achieve stunning results. In today’s blog, your Astoria, NY, dentist looks at teeth whitening treatment.
When to Seek Professional Care
When you have stains on your teeth this could cause you to feel self-conscious. Don’t try to hide your smile from the world, instead just contact our team to schedule an appointment. We will take a close look at your smile to assess the factors behind your discoloration, and then choose the right treatment for you. A professional option offers results that are more dramatic and last longer than those most over-the-counter strips and toothpastes can provide. You’re also less likely to develop tooth sensitivity as well. While for permanent teeth stains, also known as intrinsic discoloration, we may mask stains with bonding or veneers, for most cases we offer major results with our Opalescence strips!
Whitening at Home
We will send you home with a set of strips, and detailed instructions for their use. Worn daily for a set amount of time, they help break up and remove discoloration, while protecting your smile from sensitivity. You could obtain teeth brightened by several layers, and the results will be able to last much longer.
Preserving Your New Results
Good oral hygiene habits could be the key to keeping your teeth bright for longer periods of time. For example, always brush in the morning and again at night or two minutes, and take time to floss every evening. These actions help limit the severity of plaque buildup, keeping teeth bright. You can also limit stains by cutting back on drinks with dark pigments, such as soda, red wine, coffee, and tea, or at least following them up with a glass of water to rinse the mouth. Try to consume fewer foods and snacks high in sugar and starch too, as this promotes plaque buildup. A visit every six months for a checkup and cleaning is helpful as well. We will keep a close eye on your smile and also remove all harmful plaque and tartar buildup before thoroughly polishing your teeth.
