KEYS TO KEEP A WHITE SMILE
The teeth, with the passage of time and due to the consumption of food, gradually lose their natural color. It is common for teeth to darken and take on a more yellowish color, losing the appearance of a white smile. However, there are certain foods and drinks such as tea, coffee, wine, soft drinks and sugary drinks, candies, vinegar that accelerate this darkening due to their high coloring power. And of course, the biggest cause of yellow teeth is tobacco.
Teeth whitening is an aesthetic dentistry treatment that consists of improving the appearance of the teeth, clarifying them, removing dental stains and leaving them whiter and brighter.
Longevity of a white smile
The longevity of the teeth whitening treatment, in general, lasts between 1 to 3 years.
Yes, on the contrary, we use homemade and over-the-counter methods, we achieve a more subtle lightening of the dental piece and a short duration.
In any case, the fact that the white smile lasts longer will depend on the behavior of the patients.
It is essential to take care of the teeth after teeth whitening, because we will ensure that the treatment works correctly and lasts over time.
● It is essential to have a balanced diet to maintain a white smile. That is why it is recommended to avoid excessive intake of foods and drinks that can stain the tooth.
● Maintain proper dental hygiene. Ideally, brush your teeth after each meal, use mouthwash and floss.
