Everyone wants a bright, white smile, but many of us were not born with teeth as white as we’d like. Not only do teeth come in varying shades of ivory and white, but eating and drinking some foods and beverages can dull our teeth. Other habits, such as smoking cigarettes, can also make smiles less than white.
Professional teeth bleaching can make your smile many shades whiter in just one visit to the dentist. If you are a Fayetteville resident interested in teeth bleaching, you need look no further than Dr. Wade Kifer and the team at Northwest Arkansas Family Dental.
Making Your Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment Last Longer
When you undergo professional teeth whitening, you will enjoy immediate results right after treatment. Your teeth will be many shades whiter in just one appointment.
When your teeth are as white as you’d like, you might wonder how to make your professional teeth whitening treatment last longer. Dr. Kifer recommends that you avoid those habits that made your teeth stained or yellowed in the first place.
Beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine will stain your teeth over time, so try to steer clear of these—or at least brush right after indulging.
Smoking will also stain your teeth, causing them to look yellow. This is just one of the many reasons to avoid smoking.
Visiting your dentist regularly—twice each year—for examinations and cleanings can also help ensure your teeth stay their whitest for as long as possible.
Is Professional Teeth Whitening Safe?
Yes! Although some people who try over-the-counter whitening options might feel some gum sensitivity after whitening their teeth, this is quite uncommon with professional teeth whitening. The main reason for the sensitivity, in fact, is that people tend to use over-the-counter whitening kits incorrectly.
