How to Help Preserve Teeth Whitening Results
Among the various cosmetic dentistry treatments available for enhancing your smile, teeth whitening may be the simplest way to transform your look. At New England Dental Group, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Margarita Panajoti, performs Zoom!® teeth whitening as a way to brighten teeth up to eight shades whiter. However, while this in-office treatment can provide beautiful results, the whiteness is likely to fade over time, unless you take proper care.
Dr. Panajoti notes that, first and foremost, patients should practice good hygiene. By doing the following, they can help protect the health and beauty of their smile:
- Flossing daily
- Brushing twice daily
- Attending routine dental checkups
In addition to routine dental hygiene, a white smile can be preserved by undergoing the occasional at-home teeth whitening treatment. Consuming foods and drinks like coffee, tea, wine, and berries can make the brightness achieved from teeth whitening fade. We offer a variety of at-home options for patients wishing to preserve their white smile, including Opalescence® Boost Teeth Whitening System, Opalescence® Teeth Whitening, Treswhite® Teeth Whitening, and Crest® Whitestrips®.
By continuously caring for your teeth through good oral hygiene and the occasional whitening treatment, you can show off your pearly whites all year long. If tooth stains have proven difficult to remove via at-home whitening treatments, we encourage you to contact us to set up a Zoom!® teeth whitening treatment for a white smile in about an hour.
