Frequently Asked Questions About Brighter Smiles in 2017
Question: Do you offer in-office whitening?
Answer: Yes! In one visit, we can help brighten your smile by multiple shades. We will first place a protective covering over the lips and gums before applying the bleaching gel. We will then use a light to activate the gel, lifting stains from the teeth.
Question: How does at-home whitening work?
Answer: We will create a set of custom-made trays and send you home with a bleaching gel. Each day you will fill the trays with gel and wear them for one or two hours. Total treatment time takes about a week to ten days. You can then keep the trays and the remaining gel for future touch ups.
Question: How do I avoid future stains?
Answer: Avoiding stains completely is impossible, but you can take steps to reduce the severity of discoloration in between whitening treatments. First, always brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes per session. We always suggest flossing each night before bed. You also need to have your teeth professionally cleaned at the dentist’s office once every six months.
Question: What habits can keep my smile bright?
Answer: We suggest you avoid smoking or tobacco use. In addition to the cancer risk, these can stain your teeth. You should also decrease our consumption of sugary and starchy foods, which promote plaque buildup. Finally, cut back on drinks with dark pigments, such as soda, tea, red wine, coffee, and fruit juice.
