Some Home Care Options following Whitening

Congratulations on your whiter, brighter Smile!  We’re sure you will want to do everything you can to protect it.  Here are some helpful hints: 

The most common side effects of chemical whitening products are temporary tooth sensitivity and mild irritation of the soft tissues in the mouth, du to the bleach.  For a few days following treatment, your teeth may be sensitive to temperature extremes or the gums may have mild irritation.  If this does not go away, see a dentist.
To avoid harming your teeth and gums, always follow the product directions and any instructions your dentist might give you.  If you experience discomfort during the process, such as tooth hypersensitivity or sores on the gums or other mouth tissues, stop using he product and talk to a dentist.
Over-bleaching is typically the result of long-term exposure to bleaching agents. Over-bleaching can cause tooth sensitivity, a reduction in tooth enamel and mild irritation of the soft tissues of the mouth, particularly the gums. Do not use bleach products for longer than advised on the package, and do not use them for longer than advised by your dentist.

It’s not for everyone

Some individuals with certain dental conditions may not be good candidates for bleaching.  People with gum recession and exposed, highly sensitive root surfaces may fin the whitening ingredients further irritate their teeth.
If you have fillings, crowns, and extremely dark stains, talk to a dentist about whitening your teeth.  A complete oral evaluation by a dentist will help determine if bleaching is an appropriate course of treatment for you.  A dentist then can also monitor the treatment plan. 

Maintaining the improved appearance of your teeth

Newly whitened teeth may absorb stains more easily.  To keep your teeth white as long as possible, avoid tobacco and stain-causing beverages (such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine).  Keep in mind that teeth usually return to their original shade over time.  If you steer clear of tobacco and large amounts of stain-causing beverages, your teeth may remain bright for several years.

Get regular dental care.  Regularly scheduled professional cleanings and good oral hygiene will help preserve your smile.  Now that you’ve made a commitment in a nicer smile, you may want to take care of any dental problems you’ve been putting off.
