…. Following Professional Whitening With Confidental Clinic in Surbiton!
Having your teeth whitened at your local Surbiton dentist is a really great thing – we love seeing our patients grinning at the amazing different it has made to the aesthetics of their smile. It often brings such huge confidence to the patients who have it done.
However, a lot of dentistry treatments – general or cosmetic – are never permanent and are not guaranteed to last forever. The high quality products and professional service of course provide all the best chances of long-lasting results, but accidents, habits and other issues can shorten the lifespan of the effects of most cosmetic dentistry treatments. With teeth whitening this is particularly true with certain habits and diet choices. When you have whitening done with us, we will provide you with detailed advice on how best to prolong the results of the treatment. Here is a brief overview of how to keep your teeth white after you have had them whitened with us:
Following Our Advice
The first thing you need to remember, is that our professional services are completely individual to you, so all the advice we give you is specific to your needs. We request that all our patients follow the advice we provide to ensure the best possible results following treatment.
Always Have A Preventative Approach
Where possible, try to have a preventative approach to any staining that might occur. Simple lifestyle changes like cutting down on coffee consumption, or quitting smoking could be a real help when it comes to keeping your teeth bright. Dental hygiene also has a big impact on how white the teeth stay. Getting regular cleans with your hygienist at our Surbiton dental clinic is a really good habit to keep.
The first few days after whitening your teeth may be slightly more porous, so it is important to follow our advice, which includes avoiding anything that might stain the teeth. This includes avoiding smoking and avoiding consuming any foods that might stain the teeth for at least 48 hours after treatment.
Most patients follow a ‘white diet’ and do not smoke for a few days after treatment.
If you follow habits and a diet where your teeth are likely to be consistently exposed to staining, the results of your professional whitening treatment won’t last very long at all and your teeth may begin to stain again as soon as a month after treatment. You can of course have top-ups, but to get the best value for money from your treatment we do recommend you avoid re-staining them as much as possible.
