Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
There are several different ways that teeth can become discolored. Here are some of the most common culprits:
- Pigmented foods and drinks
- Using tobacco products
- Sugary and acidic foods
- Poor oral hygiene
- Certain medications
Some causes of tooth discoloration can be prevented, but others are completely out of your control. There are two main types of discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the tooth and are typically caused by foods, beverages, and tobacco products. This is the type of discoloration that can usually be lifted with professional whitening.
Intrinsic stains can occur as a result of medications, so this is something
that you should discuss with your doctor.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Dr. Kboudi offers two different types of teeth whitening depending on your preferences. Here are your options:
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
If you’re looking to lift discoloration from the comfort of your own home, take-home teeth whitening kits are available. First, Dr. Kboudi will start by checking your smile for any existing oral health issues. Next, you will get customized trays and a whitening gel that is more effective than anything that you can find in stores. After about two weeks of wearing these trays for a set amount of time every day, you’ll see beautiful results.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
For patients who are looking for fast results, in-office teeth whitening is an excellent option. Dr. Kboudi uses safe, effective whitening products to brighten your smile several shades in just one visit. You will be able to walk out of the office with a smile that’s visibly whiter.
Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
The results of teeth whitening will last much longer if you take the time to maintain them. Here are some tips to help you keep your smile looking its best:
- Practice good oral hygiene.
- Stay away from dark-colored beverages, like coffee and red wine.
- Don’t use tobacco products.
- Attend your six-month dental cleanings and checkups.
- Come see us for touch-up treatments, as needed.
