How to Get and Keep Your Whitest Smile

A white, bright smile can make the best first impression. If your teeth aren’t as shiny and white as they could be, it’s time for you to consider the benefits of professional, in-office teeth whitening services available at A New Smile CC.

Lisa Vallesteros, DDS, and Parham Ramtin, DDS, specialize in boosting the whiteness and health of your smile through routine dental cleanings and teeth whitening procedures.

The basics of professional teeth whitening

A good dental cleaning and in-office teeth whitening are a great starting point for improving the whiteness and overall appearance of your smile.

During the cleaning, Dr. Vallesteros and Dr. Ramtin remove excess plaque buildup and bacteria to ensure your mouth is clean and healthy and get the evenest results. They also evaluate your teeth and gums to identify cavities or other dental issues in the earliest stages.

In-office teeth whitening is a relatively simple procedure that follows a cleaning. This treatment involves the application of a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth. This gel remains in place for several minutes based on your desired results and can give you teeth that are eight shades whiter than what you started with.

Benefits of professional teeth whitening

One of the main benefits of in-office teeth whitening is that all work is done under the careful supervision of experienced dentists, like Dr. Ramtin and Dr. Vallesteros. They take precautions to protect your teeth, gums, and mouth from damage that can result from improperly applied whitening gel.

You also get the benefit of accurate treatment plans that not only focus on your expected results, but also on the health of your teeth and mouth. Dr. Ramtin and Dr. Vallesteros customize your whitening plan based on the condition of your teeth and the severity of your discoloration.

In-office, professional teeth whitening can also help you achieve results unlike anything an off-the-shelf whitening product can provide. The professional-strength gel goes deep into the layers of your teeth to address set-in stains. Many over-the-counter products don’t work well and can actually harm the health of your teeth and gums.

Tips for maintaining your brilliant smile

Now that your pearly whites are brighter, there’s a lot you can do to ensure your teeth whitening results are long-lasting.

Dr. Vallesteros and Dr. Ramtin can equip you with the supplies you need to continue whitening at home. They offer take-home whitening trays that are custom-molded to your own teeth to ensure more even, more noticeable results with every treatment. Each tray is filled with a professional bleaching agent to boost the whiteness of your teeth.

Besides whitening treatments, you can maintain your dazzling smile by making your oral health a top priority. This includes:

You should also pay attention to what you eat and drink. Many products, like coffee, sodas, wines, and processed foods can leave stains behind on your teeth, especially if they’re a part of your regular diet. Limit your intake of these products or use a straw to reduce the likelihood of new stains.
