Are your teeth stained?
Many adults experience the same thing. Foods, beverages, tobacco, age, injury, prescription medicines—our porous tooth enamel absorbs all of these substances so aggressively that even excellent brushing and flossing techniques cannot remove them.
Whitening at Nguyen Dental
If a brighter smile is your goal, talk to Dr. Nguyen—he will examine your gums and teeth to make sure that they're healthy enough to begin treatment. After this quick examination, you will choose between an in-office whitening treatment or an at-home variety. Both versions produce wonderful results with little-to-no sensitivity. In fact, your smile will be brightened by up to eight full shades of color!
For the in-office treatment, you will sit comfortably in the dental chair here at our Prairieville practice. Your dentist then places a rubber dam in your mouth to protect your lips and cheeks from the whitening gel. Afterward, he will swab the gel onto your teeth, allowing it to penetrate and do its work before rinsing it off. Repeated applications ensure a sparkling result in just around an hour.
For at-home whitening, you will apply a less concentrated gel using custom-made trays that fit tightly over your teeth. After a week of daily applications, you will see a renewed, bright, and healthy smile!
To keep your smile bright...
- Avoid all tobacco, for all varities will turn your teeth brown (from the tar) and yellow (because of the nicotine).
- Brush twice a day with a soft brush, and floss daily to remove plaque from between your teeth and at the gum line.
- See your dentist every six months for an exam and professional cleaning.
- Drink plenty of water every day.
- Limit dark foods and beverages (i.e. coffee, tea, soy sauce, curry, blackberries, and more).
