Teeth Whitening with Dentist in El Dorado AR: How Long Does it Last?

Teeth Whitening Dentist at W Paul Burns DDS in El Dorado AR Area

If you regularly drink tea, coffee, wine, or smoke, your teeth will eventually become stained. And to give your smile a ‘facelift,’ you may have to consider teeth whitening. While whitening kits are available in drug and grocery stores, you need to visit your dentist for professional treatment to get the results you want. Before you begin the whitening process, your dentist will thoroughly clean the tartar and plaque off your teeth. That will lighten the enamel even before the whitening procedure. Once you’ve committed to getting your teeth whitened, you may wonder how long the effects will last. There are a few variables that contribute to long-lasting results.

Teeth Whitening with a Dentist in El Dorado, Arkansas

When searching for a teeth whitening dentist, look for a qualified dentist that will deliver the best results. They will explain your whitening options and the process, for many results last about one to three years. These results will vary with each patient and the treatment type. That is because every person has different levels of routine oral care. Also, continuing to smoke or consume foods and beverages that stain will shorten the period of a bright, white smile.

Safest Teeth Whitening options

Over-the-counter DIY teeth whitening products are available such as whitening toothpaste, whitening mouthwash, whitening strips, and pens. However, prolonged use of these products can cause your tooth enamel to thin and not produce long-lasting results.

The best option is professional dentist-supervised at-home teeth whitening kits, in-office whitening, or laser whitening. These treatments produce the longest-lasting, safest whitening options.

Treatment Process

While you will notice results immediately after the first treatment, most at-home whitening treatment plans include multiple whitening applications. Our dentist will supply you with custom-made trays that are designed for a perfect fit. A whitening gel is provided to be used with the trays for bleaching and polishing your teeth at home. We also offer the option for in-office whitening and laser teeth whitening, which give quick results.
