Preserving Changes Made By Teeth Whitening Treatment

When accumulated stains on your teeth make you unhappy about your appearance, you can develop an understandable interest in professional cosmetic dental work. Our McKinney, TX dental practice can have you come into our office for a professional whitening treatment, so you can see your smile become better and brighter. If you prefer to treat your stains at home, we also provide a whitening kit you can use on your own schedule. After your cosmetic work is complete, you can use smart preventive dental health habits to protect yourself against the development of new stains!

Your Teeth Whitening Treatment Can Have A Big Impact On Your Appearance

When you have your teeth whitened with professional bleaching agents at home, or at our office, you can see a remarkable change in your appearance! Because these improvements can be done in as little as one appointment, your better smile is closer than you might think possible! The agents available through your dentist’s office are capable of removing stains that store bought products are not effective at treating. This means you can wind up showing off the kind of improvements that are not attainable with an over the counter treatment.

Changing Your Habits To Reduce The Buildup Of New Teeth Stains

While your professional whitening treatment can do a great job removing deep-set stains in your teeth, you can worry that new stains will dull your improved smile. To make sure your benefits from treatment last as long as possible, make changes to your daily routine by cutting out products that can leave stains. Swapping common beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, and cola with water during your typical day can help you limit your exposure to new stains. You should also make sure you keep up with brushing your teeth at least twice a day, so that you can consistently remove stains on the surface of your teeth. Your dentist can offer helpful tips after your treatment, and a take-home kit you can use to perform periodic touch-ups after your smile is whitened.

Should You Consider A Different Cosmetic Dental Procedure?

A teeth whitening treatment is effective against teeth stains, even those stains that are settled below the surface of your enamel and difficult to remove with store bought products. If stains are the reason for your smile concerns, you can understandably feel that this is the correct path for you. However, you might want to know what your dentist can do if you have issues with teeth that have different cosmetic concerns. If you want to hide chips, cracks, or alignment flaws, there are different treatments that can help. If you want individual teeth to look their best, consider having porcelain veneers placed. If the spacing between teeth concerns you, Invisalign can be effective at making changes you want to see.
