Did you know that brushing and flossing your teeth does more than just clean away plaque and food debris? The habit also helps minimize the stains and discoloration that can develop after years of biting and chewing your food. Still, keeping your smile as bright and as blemish-free as you would like it to remain requires more than occasionally brushing and flossing. In fact, many people undergo professional teeth-whitening treatments several times in their lives to keep up with the blemishes that naturally appear on their teeth.
The Benefits of Teeth Bleaching
The stains that develop on the surfaces of your teeth (known as extrinsic stains) are the most common types, and may appear even when you keep your teeth clean and healthy. Teeth whitening works by chemically breaking up surfaces stains, simultaneously brightening the tooth structure underneath for a stain-free, youthfully-bright smile. With a choice of application methods (either in-office or at home), you can enjoy brightening your smile on a schedule that doesn’t interfere with your daily responsibilities.
Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
While teeth whitening can effectively erase mild and moderate surface stains, it should not be relied on as your main method of keeping your smile bright. As a cosmetic solution, the treatment should only be utilized when stains appear in spite of a healthy daily hygiene routine. Maintaining a beautiful smile means keeping your teeth and gums healthy with twice-daily brushing and flossing, as well as attending regular dental checkup and cleaning appointments.
