You made the decision to have your teeth professionally whitened, and you couldn’t be happier! After just two weeks of professional teeth whitening at home, you’re smiling with confidence because you love the way you look! 

We love watching the transformation of patients who use professional take-home teeth whitening kits available at our Doylestown dental office. You deserve to love the way you look, and now that you have gone through treatment, you deserve to enjoy the results as long as possible!

How to Extend the Whitening Effect

Diligent oral hygiene – Of course, you should be doing this anyway. It's not just good for your oral health; it is the easiest way to keep your smile bright and fresh. Brushing and flossing twice a day helps remove food debris from your teeth that ultimately causes staining. If you need a refresher on the proper ways to brush and floss, just let us know! 

Routine dental cleanings – Professional cleanings get your teeth deep-down clean. As part of your cleaning, our hygienist will polish your teeth, which will restore your bright smile.

Avoid staining foods and tobacco – Red wine and black coffee are obvious culprits and should be avoided. However, you may not realize that consuming white wine, blackberries, beets, and even curry can leave stains. And tobacco? It is the worst in every way. You can’t smoke and expect to maintain a bright, healthy-looking smile!
