September 27, 2022 11:02 pm

If you’re dreaming of a whiter smile, our team at Advanced Dentistry of Nevada would be happy to help you reach your smile goals with professional teeth whitening! Professional whitening treatment is a quick and painless procedure, and results can last for many months.

After your professional whitening treatment, there are certain steps you can take to make sure your gorgeous results last for as long as possible. Below are our tips for keeping your teeth bright and beautiful after a teeth whitening treatment:

Stick to a regular oral hygiene routine

After your whitening treatment, it’s important to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time with a soft-bristled toothbrush (remember to brush your tongue) and to floss every day. A whitening toothpaste and a whitening mouthwash may also boost your results.

Avoid staining foods and beverages

Dark berries, tomato sauce, coffee, tea, and wine are examples of staining foods and beverages that can negatively affect the results of your whitening treatment. Drink plenty of water when consuming these to help remove the dark pigments from your teeth.

Avoid tobacco

Smoking and tobacco use can greatly damage your teeth and can give your teeth a yellow or gray appearance. It’s best to avoid smoking and tobacco products for both your dental health and your overall health.

Get routine cleanings

During your regular preventive cleanings at Advanced Dentistry of Nevada, your hygienist will remove built-up bacteria and surface stains from your smile, then polish your teeth. This will help them look clean and bright. We’re committed to providing our patients with affordable payment options for their treatments. We accept insurance, cash, debit and credit cards, FSAs, and HSAs. We also have an in-house dental membership plan for those who are uninsured or underinsured.
