Don’t let a yellow smile bring you down. Our dentist is here to help!
Nothing is worse than smiling and knowing that your teeth are yellowing and dull. Don’t you want a brilliant smile that you can’t wait to show off? We thought so. Fortunately, getting rid of dental stains doesn’t have to be difficult. Our Forest Hills, NY, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Richard Lestz, offers up many ways that you might be able to get your stains under control and enjoy a brighter smile.
If you aren’t someone who brushes twice a day, like they are supposed to, then now is the time to start doing it. Brushing twice a day ensures that you remove all plaque and tartar buildup from teeth, plus with a little whitening toothpaste you can prevent the development of new dental stains.
Avoid Certain Foods and Drinks
If your teeth are prone to staining then you’ll want to consider changing your diet to accommodate your smile. This means staying away from dark foods and drinks, as well as sports drinks, coffee, wine and tea, which can quickly stain up your white smile. When you do consume these kinds of foods and drinks, just remember to brush your teeth immediately after to prevent stains from forming.
Try At-Home Kits
Some people only have minimal stains that aren’t very noticeable but certainly bother them. If this is the case, you may not need to undergo our powerful whitening system in order to achieve the results you want. Sometimes whitening kits from your local drugstore can offer the subtle changes you need.
Of course, you will need to follow the directions completely to make sure that you are getting the results you want. Some patients find that unsupervised teeth whitening makes them nervous and would rather come into our office. This is particularly a concern for those with teeth sensitivity, as this symptom can often get worse during whitening treatment.
Professional Teeth Whitening
This is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options our Forest Hills dentist offers. After all, there is no simpler way to get your smile several shades whiter in often just one visit. If you want to visibly change the color and radiance of your smile and you’re on a time crunch then it’s time to find out if professional in-office teeth whitening is the best approach for removing your dental stains.
And if the idea of sitting in the dentist chair for an hour doesn’t sound ideal, then don’t hesitate to ask us about our professional at-home whitening kits, which will offer beautiful, more even results than anything you’ll be able to purchase at your local drugstore. In a matter of a week or two, you’ll start to see a whiter smile.
If professional teeth whitening is what you’ve been looking for in Forest Hills, NY, then it’s time you called and scheduled a no-risk consultation. We will examine your smile and make sure you are right for this treatment.
