Do you have a special event coming up or just want to have your best smile? Have you been researching teeth whitening? If you have, you know that teeth whitening has become very popular over the past several years. Before you purchase an over-the-counter product, you should know that OTC solutions are never as effective as professional teeth whitening performed by Dr. Whitehouse or Dr. Kilkelly. The best part is, it’s fast and convenient. After your initial visit to our dental office, you also have the option of at-home kits for teeth whitening in Austin, TX.
Benefits of KöR Teeth Whitening
Compared to store-bought teeth whiteners, KöR professional teeth whitening is clearly the superior choice. While OTC products use watered-down bleaching agents and one-size-fits-all trays, KöR lets you brighten your smile safely and effectively thanks to its incredibly potent gel and customized trays. The gel is designed to reduce sensitivity while also removing more deeply set stains, and the trays are custom-fit to minimize irritation to your gums. Plus, depending on how well you care for your mouth afterward, your results can last for several months to a year or two!
Maintaining Your Teeth Whitening Results
Once you brighten your smile, you will likely want to keep your smile white for as long as possible. With the right routine, you can help maintain your professional whitening results for longer than at-home treatments.
Daily Routine: Brushing and flossing your teeth can help keep your teeth whiter for longer. When you don’t brush your teeth regularly, plaque and bacteria can build on your teeth. As a result, this can turn your teeth yellow over time. Yet, a good oral hygiene routine can eliminate this issue.
Use Whitening Toothpaste: There is toothpaste that helps gently whiten teeth over time. You can use this to help keep your teeth whiter and maintain your results. However, these may have limited effectiveness.
Watch Your Diet: Certain foods and drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored fruits can stain teeth. Therefore, you should try to limit your intake of these items to help maintain whiter teeth.
