Teeth Whitening Aftercare

July 5, 2017 Teeth Whitening

At Sana Dental in Edmonton, AB, we offer an extensive list of cosmetic dentistry solutions, including the popular teeth whitening options. While this is not a permanent solution to staining or discoloration, it is meant to be a long lasting way to improve the looks of the smile. However, as your trusted cosmetic dentist in Edmonton, we can tell you that proper teeth whitening aftercare can help to prolong the results of your treatment.

Understanding Tooth Whitening

Not all tooth whitening treatments are alike. There are in office and take home solutions, and it is usually only the in-office teeth whitening that brightens your teeth by several shades in a single visit. Our tooth whitening specialist can help you determine which treatment is right for you and will discuss your oral health and level of dental sensitivity to ensure the right choices.

They will also review the different steps in teeth whitening aftercare to help you make the most of the treatment.

What are basic teeth whitening aftercare methods? Interestingly enough, the first tip relates directly to the causes of the staining or discoloration. Our team will help you figure out why your teeth have discolored. Is it smoking? Maybe your diet? Perhaps you drink a lot of coffee or tea that stain the teeth? Whatever it is, as part of your teeth whitening aftercare, we might discourage you from the habits that led to staining.

If you do have sensitive teeth, part of your aftercare may be using special desensitizing paste rather than your usual paste. We can also discuss take home trays that allow you to touch up the treatment and make it last far longer than normal.

Keep in mind that a good oral hygiene routine is also an ideal form of aftercare. Brushing and flossing after any meal, using any treatments or products our team suggests and coming in for regular cleanings and exams will all support oral health and a brighter smile.
