Retaining Brightness After Teeth Whitening Treatment

professional tooth whitening Jacksonville

If you decide to brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening, you want the results to last as long as possible. Unfortunately, the same things that stained your teeth prior to the treatment can stain them after the treatment. Over time, common staining will take place. To help slow down that process, Freedom Village Dental, your dentist in Jacksonville NC, offers helpful tips to make your dazzling smile last.

Do’s

First, rinse daily with anti-cavity rinse. This improves oral hygiene, minimizes bacteria, slows the growth of plaque, and also helps whiten your teeth. Additionally, there are many over-the-counter rinses with an extra whitening agent which will help lengthen the results of the whitening treatment.

Don’ts

There are some daily practices to abstain from because they will stain your teeth over time. These include drinking coffee, tea, soft drinks, red wine, smoking, and even some medications. If you cannot entirely cut these out of your life, rinse your mouth out after you use them.

Avoid acidic foods and beverages. These can weaken or wear away the enamel on your teeth, and eroded enamel allows the yellow dentin to show through.

Artificial coloring in any food items can stain your newly whitened teeth. Candy, popsicles, and fruit punch are examples.

Remember the Basics

We probably don’t need to remind you, but brushing your teeth thoroughly a couple times a day will help you keep your white smile. You may choose a toothpaste with extra whitening or baking soda to help the process. Proper brushing should take you at least two minutes using short brush strokes, paying close attention to the gum line and hard-to-reach areas. Clean the outer surfaces of your upper, then lower teeth, including the inner surfaces. Finally, don’t forget the chewing surfaces and your tongue. Using good brushing techniques for 120 seconds will benefit oral hygiene, and permanent stains will not build up as fast.

It doesn’t take too much effort to make your whitened smile last. If you have any questions call Freedom Village Dental, your dentist in Jacksonville NC. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry, including dental implants. Schedule an appointment today.

Does Whitening Toothpaste Work? Cosmetic Dentistry in Jacksonville

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Some of the most common questions we get at Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville have to do with cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening.

Because many toothpastes say they can whiten your teeth, it’s natural to consider giving them a try. Whitening toothpastes contain agents that gently polish and whiten teeth. However, these substances can only remove surface stains. This often results in whitening by roughly one shade.

On the other hand, in-office teeth whitening procedures can generally brighten your teeth anywhere from three to eight shades. That is quite a difference!

Once you see the dramatic changes that can happen with in-office whitening, why not go for the whole smile makeover? Using cosmetic dentistry procedures such as porcelain veneers, Invisalign clear braces, and dental implants are helping patients get the look they desire.

Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville offers general and cosmetic dentistry that can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Call our office today to make an appointment.
