One of the fastest and easiest ways to increase your confidence is through an at-home teeth whitening system. Having a brighter smile will encourage you to smile bigger and more often. While many grocery stores and drug stores offer over-the-counter teeth whitening systems, it is best to purchase one from a cosmetic dentist whom you trust.
Always follow the cosmetic dentist’s instructions about how to use the teeth whitening trays and how long to leave them in place.
The efficacy of a teeth whitening system will depend on the original color of your teeth and the nature of any stains. If your teeth are simply yellow-gold because of regular staining over the course of your lifetime, a regular treatment should be all that is required. If your teeth have tetracycline stains or are stained gray, you may need to treat your teeth with the system for a longer period of time.
Always follow the cosmetic dentist’s instructions about how to use the teeth whitening trays and how long to leave them in place. After the treatment, keep the trays in a place where you can easily find them again. At-home teeth whitening treatments (and all other treatments, including ones performed in the dentist’s office) are not permanent and will need routine touch-ups. In general, you will need to touch-up your treatment every six to twelve months. The touch-ups typically take one or two nights.
One easy way to remember to do your teeth whitening touch-ups is to simply request free touch-up product when you come into our office for your six-month dental check-up. Once you whiten your teeth with our products, make the treatment last as long as possible by avoiding dark teas, wines and coffee. Maintain good dental hygiene by brushing at least twice a day to remove foods and liquids that might stain your teeth.
Our products are only available from dental professionals, so you can rest assured that you are getting the highest quality, safest, most cutting-edge system available. Contact the office of Dr. Daniel C. Bush, serving Arlington TX, and ask us about our effective dental whitening products.
