At Mayfair Family Dentistry, located on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia, PA, your smile is important to us. We understand that it can be difficult to feel confident when you have a smile that you aren’t comfortable with. If you are suffering from discolored or stained teeth, you may want to consider getting your teeth whitened. If you are interested in getting your teeth whitened, ask us about our whitening special for only $250!
At Mayfair Family Dentistry, we use a whitening system called ZOOM! This system is a chairside whitening procedure that uses a low-intensity light to activate the gel. Using this system, we can give you teeth that are 6-10 shades lighter. While at home teeth whitening systems are available, they are not recommended because of safety concerns. Getting your teeth whitened at a dental clinic is going to give you faster and whiter results with the smallest amount of damage possible. If you are prone to sensitive teeth, you should know that teeth whitening will make your teeth and gums more sensitive. This is why professional teeth whitening is recommended. Talk with your dentist if you are having concerns about teeth whitening and tooth sensitivity.
After getting your teeth whitened, you may be wondering what you can do to preserve the initial results. The best thing that you can do is to maintain a regular teeth cleaning routine. You should brush your teeth at least twice daily, but for the best results, you should brush your teeth after meals as well. You should also avoid drinking coffee, tea, and red wines if you are concerned about your teeth becoming stained again. Or, you should at least brush your teeth afterward. Smoking can also cause yellowing of the teeth, and you should consider trying to cut back if you are concerned about your teeth becoming discolored.
