How Often Can I Whiten My Teeth?
- Posted on: Sep 22 2011
Excessive teeth whitening can weaken tooth enamel, resulting in tooth sensitivity. Fortunately, our whitening system achieves lasting results. Results from ZOOM!, our high concentration whitening system, can last years depending on your dietary habits and other factors such as smoking. A re-treatment every year or two is safe for most patients.
You can use at-home trays for monthly touch-ups if needed. Galleria Dental Aesthetics offers two teeth whitening options. You can receive your treatment at our offices, or you can take customized trays home with you. Results from the trays typically take up to two weeks, but a ZOOM! whitening in our office provides immediate results in 45 minutes. If you choose to receive the in-office whitening, we can also provide you with at-home trays that can be used for touchups.
You can extend the results of your tooth whitening by visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings, and by brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once a day. Beverages like coffee, tea and red wine stain teeth, but you can either brush your teeth after drinking these beverages or cut back on your consumption of them.
