Avoid These 3 Teeth Whitening Mistakes

We know that whiter teeth and a more beautiful smile can have dramatically powerful effects on our lives. For this reason, we offer a variety of professional teeth whitening services that can be beneficial to our patients. However, as is the case with any treatment, there are some mistakes that patients need to avoid in order to experience the best outcome possible. Here are three teeth whitening mistakes that we help our patients circumvent:

1. Using a whitening toothpaste every day

Whitening toothpaste can be effective for removing surface stains caused from drinks like coffee and wine, but some of these kinds of toothpaste can be too abrasive and leave your teeth in worse shape than before you started whitening them.

2. Not addressing plaque 

We take every step to educate our patients and offer laser cleaning services to patients before whitening sessions. Whitening teeth with deep plaque buildup is similar to showering with your clothes on. The whitening may be uneven and result in a less than satisfactory appearance. We want to give our patients an even, pearly white smile throughout the entire mouth, and plaque can make this goal harder to achieve.

3. Not following directions

Teeth whitening requires a commitment to the process, which forces patients to make minor sacrifices for a temporary period of time. Patients that avoid full commitment can experience poor results and need to complete the treatment again.

If you have any lingering questions about teeth whitening or if you would like to schedule a free consultation, please contact our team or make an appointment. Our incredible staff will give you the best dental care possible.
