Performing Follow-Up Treatments After Teeth Whitening

Patients can certainly look forward to the end of their professional whitening treatment. After all, the end of treatment is the start of the point where you can start showing off your bright, white smile! One concern you might have is that while your results are impressive, your teeth are still vulnerable to the kinds of stains that led to problems in the first place. What can you do to make sure your whitening treatment offers lasting results? Because your Rochester, MN dentist’s office uses a treatment approach that combines in-office care with at-home work, you can use take-home materials to perform effective touch-ups. You can also start changing your daily habits in order to lower your chances of accumulating new stains.

Do I Really Need To Worry About Teeth Stains After My Teeth Whitening Treatment?

A professional teeth whitening treatment can remove the stubborn stains that have hurt your appearance. In fact, by using a professional procedure instead of a store bought whitening kit, you can remove older, more stubborn stains that resist over the counter treatment. While this can lead to significant changes, you can be understandably concerned that over time, new stains will replace the old ones. Without proper care, this can eventually lead to frustrating changes that hurt your results. With that said, better habits and periodic touch-ups can help you greatly extend the benefits or your treatment!

Using Your Whitening Trays To Perform Periodic Touch-Ups

Using your whitening trays to perform periodic touch-ups will help you fight new stains that start to form after your initial treatment. The trays you receive are custom-made for your teeth, so that they continue to fit easily, and help you evenly apply whitening agents. Your dentist can talk to you about appropriate touch-ups when you go through your whitening treatment.

Of course, if your goal is to keep up with your smile improvements, changing your habits can be smart. Cutting back on dark liquids, and dark or color-rich foods, can expose you to fewer staining agents. Make sure you also stay consistent about brushing, so that you can clear away staining particles that are on the surface of your enamel.

Looking Into Your Other Options For Improving Your Smile

Is a whitening treatment the right solution for your smile woes? There are other cosmetic dental procedures that can be useful for patients who want a whiter smile. In fact, if you have issues with discoloration caused by problems outside of teeth stains, another approach can be preferable. Using porcelain veneers on teeth that are discolored by internal tooth issues can lead to great improvements – in addition to hiding blemishes, this can cover up damages, and other problems with the shape of teeth.
