At The Fayetteville Dentist we approach all your oral care needs in two ways: what we can do in our office, and what you can do at home.
For example, teeth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. In the office there are effective methods for lightening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening methods are also effective, and sometimes more affordable.
Additionally, we advise you regarding food and drink choices that can impact your whitened smile. Be aware of staining agents such as coffee, tea, tobacco and soda. We understand that eliminating these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change (we like them, too).
Awareness and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary beverage can cut down on the contact your teeth have with it and help neutralize the acids. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can negate the results of teeth whitening.
