According to a Journal of Dentistry study, up to 52 percent of survey respondents aren’t happy with the colour of their teeth. If you fall into that category, then you will be pleased to know that your local dentist can offer a solution.
In-chair teeth whitening is a wonderful option for many people with yellow or stained teeth who want to feel confident showing off their grin. Even for those with permanently stained teeth, dentists can offer porcelain veneers to solve the problem.
However, after in-chair whitening, it’s easy to assume that your teeth will be white forever. You’ve had the treatment; they look fab, so why wouldn’t they look that way forever? Ongoing care is required to maintain your new set of pearly whites. Here is how to keep your smile whiter and brighter for longer.
After seeing your dentist for in-chair teeth whitening, ask them about take-home trays and whether they are right for you. Take-home trays are custom moulds with a bleaching solution, designed to maintain that beautiful white smile.
Unlike over-the-counter whitening trays, those from your dentist are custom-fitted to your teeth, and with a stronger solution for a more accurate and effective whitening experience.
