How Do I Help My Teeth Stay Bright?

Over time, teeth can become stained and discolored, maybe causing you to become ashamed or embarrassed of your smile. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to stay that way forever – thanks to cosmetic dentistry. Whitening (and brightening) your smile is easier than ever nowadays, especially when you visit your dentist. Those over-the-counter kits that you may find at your local grocery or pharmacy may actually do more harm than good. However, when you consult with your dentist, they can help you determine what route would work best to achieve the results you want – a brighter smile.

How To Keep Your Teeth White & Bright

Kor Deep Bleaching:

While you can certainly achieve a whiter smile from an in-office whitening treatment or by using take-home trays – when you have severe discoloration, you may need something a little stronger. How about both of these procedures in one treatment? When you deep bleach with Kor Whitening, it combines the in-office treatment with the take-home whitening system for the brightest smile.

Thanks to modern technology, dentistry has really become part of the digital age. Using Snap digital imaging, your dentist is even able to show you what your results would be at the end of your whitening treatment! No need to worry about how your smile is going to turn out, Dr. Calcagno and Dr. Heimer can actually show you a picture of your new smile.

Avoiding Discoloration:

While you can correct the discoloration of your teeth with cosmetic dentistry, there are also ways you can prevent it from happening in the first place. Maintaining a healthy diet will help to keep your tooth enamel (the tough outer layer of your teeth that protects the softer inner layers) strong and healthy. Additionally, staying away from drinks or foods that have bright or dark coloring (especially those that are acidic – like wine, coffee, tea, etc.) will help to keep your teeth white and bright longer.
