Everyone wants a healthier whiter smile. After your cleaning and exam, talk to your dentist about the possibility of whitening your teeth. There are some factors to consider before whitening your teeth:
- After in office whitening your teeth are more porous and are more susceptible to picking up stains, therefore it is important to refrain from ingesting wine, coffee, tea or anything else that might stain your teeth for at least 3 days.
- Tooth sensitivity is a common reaction a few days after tooth whitening.
- It's important to understand that results do vary. Some stains are easier to remove than others.
The days of requiring silver fillings are gone. Our office restores teeth with only white colored fillings. White fillings have the best results with patients who have healthy gums. Healthy gums do not bleed when brushing and flossing. After receiving your white fillings it is important to maintain them by brushing and flossing well, otherwise more cavities will develop over time.
