A sparkly white smile projects health, happiness and vitality, and can give you confidence that helps you succeed in social situations, in client meetings, or in the boardroom. It’s no wonder, then, that many people who come to Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry ask about our teeth whitening services. One of the most common questions we hear is, “Do teeth continue to whiten after treatment?” The simple answer is that oftentimes they do, but it depends on the individual and the type of treatment they get.
There are two main types of professional teeth whitening treatments offered in our Suffolk County, NY offices. The first is a treatment called Sinsational Smiles®. It’s a popular in-office procedure that involves a light-activated whitening gel in a protective tray that you wear for about an hour. After that, you’ll have a take home gel that you apply on your own for the duration of treatment.
The second type of whitening treatment we offer is an at-home program that you administer yourself. A mere 30 minutes a day for up to 10 days should yield the desired results.
Of course, everyone’s teeth are different, and results will vary, but it’s likely you’ll notice the whitening effect to continue after your treatment cycle has concluded, especially with the more powerful in-office gel.
This all depends on how you take care of your mouth after your treatment is done. Beverages like coffee, tea, soda, and wine, as well as smoking can cause stains to reappear in as little as a month. Acidic foods like citrus may also contribute to staining. If you avoid these foods and drinks, and make sure to brush after eating, you’ll could keep your teeth looking great for a year or more.
Whitening toothpaste may help keep your smile in tip-top shape. Superb oral hygiene is a game-changer when it comes to reaping the maximum benefit from teeth whitening treatments. Put in a small amount of effort to keeping your mouth clean and healthy, and you’ll be rewarded with a movie-star quality smile.
Teeth whitening procedures offered at Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry won’t harm your mouth. They don’t do damage to enamel or nerves, and they won’t affect your fillings and other dental work.
You can have the smile you’ve always dreamt of, without risking the health of your teeth and gums.
