Keep Your Teeth, White, in MediDental Care
Our teeth whitening is easy, reliable, and minimally invasive. Most patients can come in on their lunch hour and walk away with a noticeably improved smile.
How long do teeth stay white after whitening?
This depends on some factors such as how quickly your teeth absorb stain and the kind of foods you eat. Generally, if you often eat or drink foods that easily cause stains (eg. curries, coffee, etc), the whitening does not last as long. For most people, teeth will stay very white for about 6 months to two years. Whitening touch-up treatments can be done at the 6 months to two-year mark to once again attain the white shade you had after your initial whitening treatment. At MediDental Care, we provide you with a whitening touch up kit to take home with you after your professional whitening appointment. Call today to book a whitening appointment!
Side effects and other considerations
While teeth whitening is considered safe, you may experience some side effects from treatments:
- Teeth sensitivity. Your teeth may become more sensitive following teeth whitening. You may experience this on your first or second treatment, and it may diminish with time. Your dentist may recommend treating sensitivity with products that contain potassium nitrate and sodium fluoride gel.
- Irritated gums. You may also experience gingival irritation. This is when your gums become irritated. This can happen because of contact on your gums with the whitening product. This side effect should go away after your treatments.
Keep in mind that you cannot whiten your teeth on a permanent basis. You’ll need to seek whitening treatments every so often for both extrinsic and intrinsic discoloration. Also, keep in mind that these products are for natural teeth. You’ll need to talk to your dentist about how to unify the color of your teeth if you have implants, crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Teeth whitening treatments may not be right for you to try while you have active cavities or certain dental work in progress.
