Team Cosmetic Dentistry, Teeth Whitening

If you’re ready to put your best face forward, by way of a megawatt smile, you’re likely interested in teeth whitening. A fast, simple procedure that produces remarkable results, teeth whitening at Bellissimi Dental is an affordable, effective cosmetic dentistry option you can take advantage of today. 

What Is the Best Teeth Whitening System?

There are plenty of teeth whitening products available on the market. However, for the best results, we recommend professional-grade products using one of the take-home products we offer.

Our top-reviewed team of dentistal professionals at Bellissimi Dental can create a personalized whitening tray just for you. You’ll then receive professional-grade whitening gel, to fill the trays with, and wear at home. We also offer another superior teeth whitening product, complete with convenient pre-filled trays, called Opalescence Go. These pre-filled whitening trays make it even easier to get whiter teeth in just weeks. Simply put the pre-filled trays on your top and bottom teeth for minutes each day, and watch as your teeth become whiter and brighter in just a week. 

How Long Will My Teeth Stay White?

Each person is a little different, but generally speaking, once you’ve whitened your teeth, the results should last for at least six months. Some patients may experience years of brighter, whiter teeth after a single treatment.  

There are a few things you can do to extend the results of teeth whitening. Certain foods and beverages are known to stain teeth. To maintain your results, limit your intake of:

  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Grape juice
  • Tea
  • Soda pop

What causes stains on my teeth?

Dull, yellowed, or otherwise discolored teeth may result from lifestyle, genetics, medications, disease, and aging. Some of these you can control, including your lifestyle. To prevent stains from developing on your teeth, follow these tips.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Brushing at least twice a day, and flossing daily is essential to preventing stains and discoloration on your teeth.

Avoid Smoking, Vaping, and Chewing Tobacco

Cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and even vaping can cause staining and discoloration. Avoid all of these unhealthy habits.

Reduce Soda Intake

Colas are known to stain teeth. Likewise, coffees, teas, and red wine will lead to tooth discoloration or staining. Limit your consumption of these beverages. 

Limit Sugary Snacks

Candies, cakes, pies, and other sugary foods lead to cavities, which can present as dark spots on the teeth. Although cavities typically don’t discolor your teeth, they can leave a stain-like mark.

See Your Dentist Twice a Year

You should have a professional cleaning and dental exam every six months. This will ensure your teeth remain healthy and stop the progression of cavities or decay as it appears. Healthy teeth are generally brighter, whiter teeth.
