If you have stained teeth and would like to restore your smile with teeth whitening in Atlanta, Goldstein Garber & Salama can help with affordable, fast, and non-invasive cosmetic dentistry. To learn more about your teeth whitening options, contact us for an appointment.
The only common side effect of professional whitening is tooth sensitivity. It’s common for your teeth to feel a bit sensitive to hot and cold foods and drinks. Depending on the patient, this can last from several days to several months.
If you have sensitive teeth, we recommend telling your dentist at Goldstein Garber & Salama about this so that they can customize your treatment and ensure your comfort during the whitening process.
With proper at-home care, you can usually expect your newly-whitened smile to last between 1-3 years. With regular touch-ups at our office, however, you can keep your smile white indefinitely.
We recommend using a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, and ensuring you brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes. You may also want to avoid or reduce your intake of drinks like coffee, tea, and cola, which can stain your teeth. Drinking these beverages with a straw can also help prevent stains, since the straw prevents direct contact with your teeth.
Regular teeth cleanings can help remove surface stains and plaque from your teeth, so make sure you’re seeing your dentist at Goldstein Garber & Salama for a teeth cleaning and oral exam every six months.
