How to Maintain a White Smile

Teeth Whitening Melville, NYEven though Halloween is almost here, you don’t need to walk around with a mouth full of black, gray, or even yellow teeth. By staying up-to-date on your dental whitening, you can rest assured that you only look like a ghoul on Halloween. The tricky thing about dental whitening is that for many patients, their teeth start to look a little yellow after just a few cups of coffee--making patients feel like their whitening will never last. From in-office whitening to whitening pens, this article will list a few ways that may help you keep your teeth white all year long.

In Office Whitening

Unless you took a medication like a tetracycline when you were little, and your teeth are permanently stained gray, Dr. Dean Glasser should be able to make your teeth visibly whiter after just a few laser whitening sessions. Depending on how severe your stains are, he may recommend more than one treatment to get the best results possible.

Whitening Toothpaste

If you’re not already brushing with a whitening toothpaste, you are doing your teeth a serious disservice. Over-the-counter whitening toothpaste contains a small amount of hydrogen peroxide that works to rid your teeth of surface stains caused by things such as tomato sauce and coffee— which makes whitening toothpaste something you should consider using every day.

Whitening Pens

Whitening pens hit the market a few years ago and have slowly started to gain popularity. Because you are unable to brush your teeth when you’re at work or out in public, a whitening pen gives you the ability to fight surface stains before they sit on your teeth for too long. All you have to do is remove the cap and paint the whitening solution onto your teeth— it’s is simple as that.

Teeth whitening isn't a one and done kind of thing— it requires routine maintenance. If you have stained teeth that you would like to whiten, contact Dr. Dean Glasser’s office today to schedule an appointment, and we will gladly assist you.
