Very likely your dentist will recommend you have your teeth cleaned to remove plaque build-up and extrinsic stains during that appointment. An exam will determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening.
During this exam, you can consult with your dentist to determine the best type of whitening for your needs … in-office whitening can be completed in one brief visit. However, for patients that wish to whiten at their own pace in the privacy of home, your dentist can recommend the best products for your needs.

Now that you have made the decision to brighten your smile, there are a few things to remember to keep teeth their brightest.
Certain foods and beverages are known to stain dental enamel … berries, citrus, beets, coffee, tea, red wine, and colas … to name a few. You can either avoid those things known to discolor your teeth or be proactive, and if you eat or drink something known to stain, brush or rinse your teeth as soon as possible.
Cold beverages can be consumed with a straw. Using a straw allows your drink to bypass your teeth. Never swish or hold beverages in your mouth longer than necessary.
Brush and floss daily. See your dentist for a thorough cleaning every six months to extend the life of your teeth whitening experience. Touch-up whitening kits are available as needed.
Teeth whitening can deliver a smile makeover that will enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence. To learn more about your options, contact the office of Dr. Amy M. Durisin at 714-543-1170 today.
