TULSA, OK, April 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As time goes by, our teeth become progressively more discolored and stained. This occurs not only because we consume foods and drinks that leave stains, but it also occurs as a result of aging. Fortunately, the Tulsa teeth whitening
experts at Perfect Smile Tulsa have some tips for how to make your teeth white again and keep them that way.
Get Back a Sparkling Smile
If you are going to pursue whitening treatments, you should start by visiting the dentist. Your Tulsa dentist
will give you a professional dental cleaning and check your mouth's overall health to determine if your teeth and gums are healthy enough to withstand a whitening treatment. They will then discuss which whitening treatments you should consider using.
For the quickest results, you will want a Tulsa cosmetic dentistry
specialist to perform an in-office whitening treatment. Your dentist will first protect your gums with a paint-on protective coating, then they will apply a powerful hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth. This gel will help your teeth to become several shades lighter during your hour-long appointment.
For results that take a little longer to achieve but also last a long time, ask your dentist for a home whitening kit. They can create a customized whitening tray for you to use to keep your teeth in contact with a whitening gel.
"Over-the-counter teeth whitening systems are available, but they are not as effective as those prescribed by a dentist," says Marianne Davis, Director of Marketing for Perfect Smile Tulsa. "To get the best possible results, simply use our whitening products daily as instructed."
You will need to make an effort to maintain your teeth after whitening. Be careful when consuming stain-causing foods and beverages and clean your teeth after consuming them. Maintain a daily regimen of brushing and flossing to remove stains and plaque. If needed, have touch-up treatments every few years.
