Do you have darkened, yellowed, or stained teeth? Get a whiter and brighter smile at Bella Smiles in Roslyn, NY. Dr. Diana Pop offers teeth whitening treatment to her patients in her office, though there are several things you can do at home to help keep your teeth healthy and bright:
Brushing and flossing teeth and gums properly is the best way to keep your smile bright. Poor oral hygiene can allow plaque to develop. Plaque can turn into tartar and cause gum and tooth infection. You should also avoid smoking and tobacco products which can stain teeth and gums and lead to gum disease. Stains are often difficult to remove.
A Healthy Diet
Sugary foods and drinks can be bad for you for a lot of reasons, but they can also increase the likelihood of plaque buildup as well as developing cavities and decay. One of the most common causes of tooth discoloration is from foods and drinks. Much like smoking and tobacco products, dark drinks and foods can stain teeth.
Professional Cleanings and Teeth Whitening
A professional tooth cleaning can help you maintain a lasting and natural smile. In between dentist office visits, brushing and flossing twice a day help to keep your teeth clean and strong. For patients more prone to decay or gum disease, Dr. Pop may recommend additional visits in order to maintain optimal dental health. Keeping your smile clean and healthy benefits both your oral and overall health.
You will receive a dental cleaning in our office before any teeth whitening treatment to maximize results. Dr. Pop offers Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening which uses a special hydrogen peroxide whitening gel that is activated by the Zoom light. The gel penetrates the teeth to lighten stains and discoloration. The whole process takes only an hour and is a quick and effective way to receive a whiter smile.
