Teeth Whitening Results
To ensure your treatment results last, we recommend following our dentist's guidelines word-for-word. Our dentists will advise against consuming anything that can stain your teeth, especially drinks like coffee, red wine, tea, and smoking.
How Can I Maintain My Whiter Smile?
Besides avoiding the consumption of certain foods, hygiene habits can also influence how long the treatment will last before you need another one, so most patients will be advised to regularly brush their teeth with fluoride toothpaste and floss twice a day.
What Makes You A Candidate For Teeth Whitening?
Anyone who wishes to get a whitening procedure done is an eligible candidate for the procedure. Most commonly, patients who want to receive teeth whitening treatment are those who have had their teeth stained due to diet and lifestyle habits.
If you wish to get a whitening treatment done, know that certain stains respond better to the whitening process or specific bleaching methods, and some stains cannot be treated via whitening treatment. Teeth that are stained yellow respond best to the procedure while those brown-grey see inconsistent results.
Can I Have My Teeth Whitened If I Have Tooth Sensitivity?
It is essential to keep in mind that patients with oral diseases or sensitive teeth should not receive teeth whitening treatment as the procedure further increases the sensitivity. Moreover, the treatment is not carried out in patients with dental work like implants, dental veneers, or dental crowns. These do not respond to any tooth whitening products and treatments.
