How Often Do I Need Professional Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening can make a positive impact on your smile because it can effectively remove years of stains and discolorations. Our dentists at Made Ya Smile of The Woodlands, TX are proud to offer both an in-office or at-home teeth whitening procedure that will give you a happier and healthier-looking smile.
You’ll require professional whitening once a year to maintain your desired look. The timing between treatments is enough to ensure your results will last for a while, plus it is necessary for preventing the strong materials used here from possibly harming your teeth from overuse.
How does the whitening process work?
You can select one of two options for whitening your teeth when you contact us at Made Ya Smile for help. We offer an in-office laser teeth whitening solution that lifts stains throughout your teeth. We use the Philips Zoom whitening system that incorporates a whitening gel activated by a dental laser. The laser triggers the gel to release peroxides that will clear those tough stains from your teeth caused by tea, coffee, wine, tobacco, poor oral hygiene, and aging.
We also provide an at-home teeth whitening option that incorporates dental trays we can custom prepare to fit your teeth. You can apply a prescription-grade whitening agent to the trays and use them over your teeth to help reduce stains.
The whitening agents you’ll use through either of these two procedures will be stronger than anything you might find in over-the-counter products. The application measures are also easier to manage, as the in-office laser treatment system or at-home dental trays will be customized to work for your needs. Be sure to follow all instructions to prevent overuse, which may damage your teeth.
Why whiten your teeth once a year?
At Made Ya Smile, we use professional strength whitening materials and will be stronger than anything else you might find on the market. If you have too many treatments in a calendar year, the compounds can temporarily weaken your enamel, leading to sensitivity for a few days.
While the whitening process will not harm your teeth if handled once a year, using it too often can result in your teeth experiencing further harm. Spacing out your whitening treatments is ideal for ensuring your teeth remain healthy and our treatment is effective enough to where you won’t require too many treatments.
Protect your teeth after each session
You can ensure you won’t require too many whitening treatments by protecting your teeth after a whitening session. Be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to ensure compounds that could stain your teeth won’t stick around. Regular brushing and flossing are also critical, plus you’ll need to avoid foods and drinks that can cause stains to keep them from being a threat of discoloration.
