COSMETIC DENTISTRY ADVICES AFTER WHITENING
As part of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening yields spectacular results. To enjoy clean teeth for a longer period of time, we advise you to stop smoking and avoid colored food and beverages. And don’t forget about constant hygiene consultations, mandatory after teeth whitening. The color of the teeth after a professional whitening stabilizes in time, while the teeth continue to whiten.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. You have to repeat the procedure after 6-12 months, depending on your habits (smoking, drinking coffee, red wine, food coloring). To keep the color for as long as possible, we recommend using trays with whitening gel at home.
After the procedure, you might experiment a slight sensitivity, which goes away after 2-3 days.
You must use fluoride toothpaste for sensitive teeth. You can then use toothpaste with a whitening effect.
After teeth whitening, you might experience that fillings and other prosthetics pieces do not match in color any longer, the frontal area being of extreme importance in cosmetic dentistry. For this reason, we recommend you whiten your teeth prior to having fillings or permanent restorative pieces. To keep your teeth looking beautiful and healthy, we recommend you eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, such as apples and carrots, since they remove any leftovers and increase the production of saliva (natural cleaning agent), eliminating bacteria which cause bad breath.
