Do’s and Don’ts After Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a game changer for a patient’s confidence and self-image but a new smile comes with certain precautions to maintain it just after treatment.
Flossing prevents gingivitis, or gum disease, by preventing the build-up of plaque on and between your teeth. The long-term effects of allowing bacteria to grow are serious and can range from cavities to gum disease and eventually loss of teeth and bone loss.
Teeth whitening has been around for decades and millions of people use whitening products – including plenty of dentists. According to dental professionals, they haven’t seen an increase in problems like cavity risk or tooth fractures after teeth whitening procedures.
