When you are first considering treatment for dental bleaching, your whitening treatments can be done at any time. However, if you plan on getting teeth bleaching treatments done periodically, there is a time frame you should stick to in order to keep your teeth and their enamel strong and healthy. At Bellflower Dental Group, we recommend waiting six months after a professional whitening treatment is complete before getting another. Bleaching your teeth can add sensitivity you may not want if done too often, and it can also cause damage. If you are only seeing darker spots on a tooth or a few teeth, there are spot treatments available, which help when considering damage to other teeth that may not need treatment. If you are really concerned with the yellowing appearance of your teeth once they are whitened, staying away from foods, beverages, and other items such as tobacco that have a coloring effect on your teeth is a good idea. Schedule an appointment for your professional teeth whitening in Bellflower today, and start feeling more confident in your smile.
