How to Get and Maintain Your Whitest Teeth

Whitening, extension, cleaning, coffee, wine

While some dental issues, such as crooked or missing teeth, take time to fix. It takes no time at all to achieve a brighter smile.

There are many ways to whiten your teeth at home. But professional whitening is one of the most effective ways. It reaches below the enamel of the tooth, to give you a whiter smile.

At Charlotte Dental Esthetics, Dr. Vaibhav Bajaj can help you feel more confident. In just a few hours, she can give you the smile of your dreams.

Get whiter teeth

If you aren’t quite ready for professional whitening, you can start with a few at-home remedies. You can brush your teeth twice a day using a fluoridated whitening toothpaste and floss once per day. Frequent and proper brushing removes surface stains from your teeth. And flossing removes plaque and other types of build-up. Which helps your smile look whiter and brighter.

You should also try to stay away from stain-causing foods and beverages. Such as coffee, dark sodas, and red wine.

If you're still not seeing results, ask your dentist about whitening treatments.

Zoom teeth whitening

Dr. Bajaj uses Zoom whitening treatments to brighten your smile. There are several options you can choose, based on your specific needs. Either way, you'll be flashing your pearly whites three to four hours after treatment.

You should only need three 15-minute Zoom teeth whitening sessions. During each session, you're fitted with dental trays. These trays contain a hydrogen peroxide solution that removes stains below the enamel. Once you're fitted, you'll relax under a bright light. So the solution can work its magic!

After your appointment, you’ll see results in as little as two hours. We also have convenient at-home whitening kits for patients with limited schedules.

Maintain your new smile

The key to a bright smile is maintenance. You can get all the treatment you want. But if you don't take care of your mouth, you won't see long-term results.

Ensuring your everyday habits are healthy is a great way to keep your teeth white. Keep up with your brushing and flossing. And avoid contact with staining foods and beverages.

Here are other methods to keep your smile bright:
