HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WHITEN MY TEETH?
White teeth...#1 request of our patients. Here’s your guide to a whiter smile: If you have never whitening your teeth before, we recommend the Zoom whitening system. This includes a 1- hour, in-office, light-activated whitening session that can result in several shades whiter INSTANTLY! Then we make custom trays so you can continue whitening at home for optimal results. For daily maintenance and long-lasting results, brush and floss daily. Refrain(or reduce) drinking dark liquids (i.e. coffee, tea, red wine, etc.). Get regular dental exams and cleanings. And like hair color or a great tan, your smile will need to be to maintain. Some patients may only need to do a simple touch-up with their custom trays which can be safely done every 6 months. Some patients prefer another in-office treatment, which can be done every 12-18 months. Keep in mind that whitening is only recommended for patients that are cavity-free with healthy gums. Remember, no whitening system can whitening any fillings or crowns. Consult your dental professional for the best whitening options and frequency for your smile!
