How to Extend the Results of Teeth Whitening

As you get older, your teeth naturally yellow as part of the aging process. But that doesn’t mean you have to live with dull, stained teeth for the rest of your life. 

At  Pacific Coast Smiles in Santa Maria, California, our highly-skilled providers offer professional teeth-whitening treatments. Advancements in dental technology mean today’s professional teeth-whitening products are effective and safe.

Our dentists also understand you want to keep your smile as white and bright as possible for as long as possible. Our teeth whitening removes a lifetime of stains, giving you a whiter smile that, with proper attention, will last for years to come.

Below is a list of things you can do to extend the results of your professional teeth-whitening treatment.

Understanding professional teeth whitening

At Pacific Coast Smiles, we offer both in-office teeth whitening. During your teeth whitening appointment, you relax and watch as you wait for the process to work and leave in just one hour with a dramatically whitened smile. We also offer take-home whitening kits with a professional-grade whitening agent.

Tips to extend the results of your teeth whitening

How long results from professional teeth whitening last depends on each individual and their particular habits. And no matter how well you follow guidelines to keep your teeth white, all dental bleaching, both in-home or in-office, requires touch-up treatments at some point. 

You can ensure your results last as long as possible by following these tips:

Since your teeth will continue to yellow as you age, you can boost your brightness with an at-home touch-up whitening kit, available at our office. Take-home kits are customized for your teeth, making it easy for you to keep your smile white and bright.
