As we get older, our teeth start to lose their natural whiteness. Our lifestyles can also speed up the process if we partake in habits such as using tobacco products or drinking coffee.
If you’ve noticed that your teeth are starting to look more yellow than white, you might want to consider teeth whitening at your Chesterfield dentist. At Chesterfield Valley Dental, we offer teeth whitening for a bright and white smile you can’t help but want to show the world.
How Tooth Whitening Works
We recommend you have a complete teeth cleaning before undergoing the teeth whitening procedure. A professional cleaning will ensure your teeth are free of plaque and tarter, so the whitening procedure will be more effective.
Dr. Rahm uses the KöR whitening system, which he considers to be the gold standard when it comes to professional teeth whitening.
Using this system, he will apply the whitening gel onto your clean teeth. Care is always taken to protect the gums and lips. The gel will sit on your teeth for about 15 minutes as a special light is used to activate the gel. This process may be repeated.
Following Up Your Teeth Whitening Treatment with Good Home Care
After you’ve had your teeth whitened, you will want to protect your investment. Make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss once. Keeping your teeth clean can help keep stains from forming on the surface of your teeth, making the whitening treatment last longer.
Make sure you stay current with twice yearly examinations and cleanings at your dentist.
