You love that you are going to have a beautiful, whiter smile, and you want it to last a long time before your next treatment. However, you might be wondering just what type of teeth whitening aftercare you will need to do to keep that bright smile for a while. You might also be wondering what to expect once you have your first tooth whitening treatment. Let’s get a better idea of what you will have in store once you get this popular cosmetic dentistry treatment from your dentists in Amarillo.
Something you will want to consider even before you get your teeth whitened is just how sensitive your teeth are normally. Whitening can increase sensitivity for a day or so, and those who normally have very sensitive teeth might not want to undergo the procedure. This is something you can speak with your Amarillo dentist about when you are talking about your teeth whitening aftercare procedures. Most of the time, the sensitivity to cold, along with any discomfort in the gums, goes away within a day or two.
You want to make sure you have a beautiful, bright smile for as long as possible after you have your treatment. There are a few simple things you can do to help with this part of your teeth whitening aftercare. First, you will want to reduce the amount of sugary foods and drinks that you have, as well as the number of staining items in your diet. For example, you might want to cut back on the coffee and tea. Smoking is another problem when it comes to staining. To keep your teeth as white as possible, and to make sure you are healthy, consider quitting.
