As we get older, our teeth can become increasingly discoloured due to the foods and drinks we ingest, as well as general daily wear and tear. All of these factors can cause our smiles to look yellowish and dull. While a proper dental routine can help to keep our teeth bright and healthy, many people turn to professional teeth whitening as a solution.
In-office teeth whitening is a safe, effective procedure to make your pearly whites brighter. At Southeast Dental, we use stronger products than the kind available at your local pharmacy, as well as the equipment to ensure great results.
But there is more to teeth whitening than the procedure in the dental office. You can help make your professionally whitened smile last as long as possible with these tips:
Avoid smoking – While we always advise against smoking in general, it’s well known that smoking is one of the biggest causes of tooth discoloration. If you’re a smoker looking for whiter teeth, keep in mind that the results won’t last as long if you continue to smoke.
Drink wine, coffee and other staining foods and drinks in moderation – We would never tell you to give up coffee (we know better)! But cutting back on that and others that cause stains is a smart idea to keep your teeth their whitest.
Keep up your daily dental health routine – Brushing twice per day, flossing daily, using mouth wash and – of course – visiting your dentist office regularly are all a big part of maintaining your newly whitened smile.
