Brightening the color of your teeth is a safe and easy way to enhance your smile and self-confidence. With the help of our Phoenix dentist, you can have drastically whiter teeth before you head back to working in the office full-time, finally get to attend that long-delayed party, or the kids (hopefully) start back to school.
Professional teeth whitening can lift multiple shades of stain and discoloration from your enamel. So, if you’re a coffee lover, down a lot of sports drinks in the summer, or notice your favorite snacks starting to stain your teeth, whitening is a great way to erase the evidence.
Over time, our smiles naturally absorb the stains from our foods and drinks. Our Phoenix teeth whitening treatment uses concentrated, gentle bleaching solutions that oxidize stain particles deep inside your tooth structure. So even if you have strong stains that don’t get polished off during your routine cleanings, you can target the particles that have soaked down into the microscopic pores across your enamel’s surface.
Whitening can be a stand-alone cosmetic dentistry procedure, or easily combined with services like gummy smile treatment, dental bonding, or Liplase lip enhancements. If you’re thinking about getting dental veneers, updating existing porcelain crowns, or changing out your metal fillings for white ones, Dr. Behbahani recommends bleaching your teeth first, so that you have a bright template to work with!
Typically, you’ll want to whiten your teeth at least two weeks before other types of cosmetic or tooth-colored restorative procedures. That way the color will have stabilized and new materials can be matched to your teeth.
Phoenix teeth whitening comes in take-home systems or an in-house delivery method. Both produce great results; the only difference is how quickly you see your teeth whiten. If you’re in a rush and need white teeth in just one day, then an in-house procedure is best. But for convenience sake and affordability, a professional take-home tray set is usually ideal.
How can you keep your teeth white after your treatment? Follow these easy tips:
- Rinse your mouth after drinking dark liquids
- Use a reusable, washable straw (to limit stain contact)
- Schedule regular cleanings with your hygienist
- Touch-up with your home whitening system as needed
- Floss daily
- Brush twice per day
- Consider using a whitening toothpaste
- Limit dark foods like tomato pastes, curry, berries, etc.
