Dental team in Houston provides tips for maximizing tooth whitening results
Whiter teeth can boost your self-esteem. Your body releases endorphins when you smile. These “feel good” hormones naturally help you feel better about yourself. Pearly whites can attract others to you. You only have one chance to make a first impression. You can make it a memorable one when you flash a beautiful, stunning smile.
With so many reasons to attain a brighter smile, many patients seek the team at Vivid Dental in Houston for teeth whitening treatment. Following the procedure, they often ask, “What tips do you have for maximizing tooth whitening results?” We are happy to explain them. First, we will highlight the treatment we provide.
We can brighten smiles for teenagers and adults with in-office and at-home whitening treatments. Utilizing the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System, patients enjoy smiles up to 16 shades lighter. For treatment, we will ensure the eyes, lips, and gums are properly protected. Using the KöR system, we place a gel on the teeth that is absorbed and dissolves stain molecules.
The at-home treatment is for patients as young as 14. We will take impressions of the mouth and customize whitening trays. We will ensure they fit precisely before providing bleaching gel and instructions for whitening at home. We recommend wearing the trays daily. Within a week or two, you can attain the smile of your dreams. For maximum results, you can combine the at-home and in-office treatments.
How do you maintain your pearly whites? We provide the following tips:
- Maintain good dental hygiene habits – Brush at least twice a day, floss before bedtime, and schedule biannual dental check-ups.
- Avoid stain culprits – Coffee, tea, soda, berries, and sauces can stain teeth over time. We recommend avoiding these foods and beverages when possible.
- Avoid smoking – Not only can tobacco wreak havoc on overall health, but it can also cause the smile to look dull.
The team at Vivid Dental can help you attain the smile you have always wanted. We will be happy to discuss your smile goals during a consultation. Schedule yours by calling our friendly team at 281-809-4902.
