Teeth Whitening After Braces

Teeth Whitening After BracesYou’ve put in the time, now make sure you’re getting the results you want with teeth whitening after braces from Gateway Dental Care in Pleasanton, CA. When you finally get your braces off, it can be disheartened to see that your newly straightened teeth have become discolored under the brackets. We can help with professional teeth whitening services.

What Causes Tooth Stains After Braces?

Having braces removed is often a time of great excitement and anticipation. Months or even years worth of orthodontic appointments have led up to this moment. But sometimes, yellow teeth and tooth stains are uncovered along with that new straight smile. This can leave you feeling less than confident and even more self-conscious.

There are some ways to prevent tooth discoloration from happening in the first place, even with braces.

  • Avoiding Dark-Colored Foods & Drinks
  • Avoiding Sugary, Starchy & Acidic Foods
  • Rinsing & Brushing After Meals
  • Getting Regular Dental Cleanings
  • Practicing Excellent Oral Hygiene

Perfecting Your Smile

Once you get your braces off, if you find yourself unhappy with the color of your teeth, a cosmetic dentist will be able to help. Our cosmetic dentistry services include many smile perfecting options. We can help you achieve whiter teeth after the removal of youth or braces.

Best Left To The Professionals

Go into any drug store and you will find a multitude of teeth whitening products. Whitening your own teeth may seem like a simple undertaking and an easy way to save some money. However, for your dental health, and for optimal results, you should always consult with your family dentist first.

After all the time and expense you’ve spent on orthodontic treatment, you’ll want to do everything you can to preserve the health of your teeth. Some at-home tooth whitening treatments can be damaging. They are also often simply not as effective as professional, in-office treatments.

Plus, coming in for a deep clean, gives you a fresh canvas for any whitening service.
