How Can I Maintain My White Smile?
To keep your smile as white and gorgeous as possible, it is important to follow up your Austin Dental Spa teeth whitening session with regular maintenance and strong oral health. Smokers present the biggest challenge in maintaining their whitening results long term. We strongly recommend that if you smoke, you use the custom trays at home a few times a week after receiving your treatment. This simple addition to your daily routine seems to prolong the whitening effects even for heavy smokers. Another problem with any teeth whitening method is previous dental work in the “smile zone.” Old crowns or fillings will not whiten along with your teeth, therefore making them much more obvious than before whitening. Most patients elect to have this dental work replaced shortly after whitening with new dental crowns, white fillings, or even porcelain veneers.
