The Teeth Whitening Truth: Why Your Perfect Smile Never Has To Fade

When your teeth are healthy, fully functional, and a beautiful shade of white, that's dental perfection. Unfortunately for many of us, achieving that third ingredient in the trifecta of good dental health can be tough to come by. Even more frustrating is when, after teeth whitening services are applied to your mouth, your newfound bright and beautiful smile quickly subsides - leaving White Teethyour chompers back at an unappealing square one!

But that doesn't mean tried-and-true, just-for-you teeth whitening services can't be yours for the foreseeable future: at Apple Valley Dental, only the most efficient dental methods are employed to help perfect your smile once and for all. Samuel Kim, DDS, provides expert cosmetic dental services for a wide variety of dental problems, including in-office teeth whitening that can brighten your smile a noticeable three to eight shades in just one hour!

The convenience of in-office whitening extends to before the procedure, too, when getting an oral exam to ensure that your tooth discoloration isn't because of an underlying dental disaster that needs immediate treatment is the first priority.

After your teeth are whitened, though, it's largely up to you to make sure they stay that perfect shade of white. Check out how you can care for your brightened smile below:

How Long Will My Teeth Stay White?

Patients create their own answer for this one: depending on how well your teeth are cared for after they've been whitened, they can remain as beautiful as the day you left the dentist for anywhere between six months to two years, on average.

But when you brush and floss every day and continue to see the dentist for mandatory post-procedure check-ups, the length of time you can maintain whitened teeth extends considerably. Also, staying away from foods and drinks that can stain your teeth all over again (like red wine, tea, and coffee) while also abstaining from smoking can do wonders for your continued pearly whites.
