What do you know about getting a brighter, whiter smile? You may understand that there are many different options you could try. For instance, there are at-home kits you can consider or you can get your teeth whitened by dental professionals. While both kinds of treatments have merit, did you know that they each offer different benefits?

For instance, did you know that these at-home whitening kits may be a much more affordable solution? In fact, using an at-home whitening kit is considered convenient since you can use it from the comfort of your own home and use it when it is suitable for you. However, would you be surprised to hear that many people aren’t satisfied with the results from at-home whitening? Similarly, if you are suffering from gum disease or tooth decay and don’t know it, at-home whitening could hurt and damage your teeth. Fortunately, if you visit our team for a whitening treatment, we’ll be able to identify any problems or issues and help address them before whitening your pearly whites. In fact, we’ll be able to give you results after just one session, which usually takes about 90 minutes.

However, after you’ve had a whitening treatment, there are different foods and drinks you should stay away from. Generally, we recommend avoiding stain-producing foods and drinks like berries, coffee, and wine. Smoking will also stain your pearly whites.
