Discover the many ways in which you can get a more radiant smile.
Everything from that morning cup of Joe to that evening bowl of pasta with tomato sauce can cause teeth to look a little dingy over the years. Yes, the foods and drinks you consume play a large role in the color of your teeth, as do other factors such as smoking or taking certain medications (e.g. antibiotics). Luckily, our Augusta and Evans, GA, cosmetic dentists Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris offer a variety of teeth whitening options, as well as tips for how to reduce dental stains in the future.
Consider In-Office Whitening
If your biggest concern is getting a significantly whiter smile and to remove darker and more prominent external stains then in-office or chairside whitening is probably going to give you the best results. Your dentist can often give you the dramatic results you want in just a single session (those with more severe stains may require more than one whitening session), which is great if you have an important event or occasion coming up and you would like to have a visibly whiter smile quickly.
Try Professional At-Home Whitening
Okay, so perhaps commercial whitening trays and strips didn’t do the trick but that doesn’t mean that all at-home whitening systems are the same. Our dentist can provide you with a more effective and more powerful whitening system that you can use from the comfort of your own home. Our professional at-home whitening also offers custom-fitted trays, which ensures thorough and more even results. If you’re looking to get professional results but you don’t want to sit in a dentist’s chair to achieve it, then our at-home whitening may be a better option for you.
Maintaining a Whiter Smile
Regardless of whether you just underwent whitening treatment at our office or you’re simply looking for a way to keep those pearly whites look their best, here are some tips to prevent new stains from forming,
- Brush your teeth after every meal or snack
- Use a whitening toothpaste
- Consider using whitening strips or home whitening kits to maintain your new results
- Sip dark liquids through a straw
- Avoid dark foods and drinks
- Consider using an electric toothbrush
