Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Truthfully, almost any adult who’s unhappy with the color of their smile is a good candidate for professional teeth whitening in Lincoln. Of course, the only way to know for sure whether or not you’re eligible is by attending a consultation with Dr. Parks. He’ll perform an oral examination, review your medical history, and inquire about your goals to find out whether this cosmetic service is right for you.

If you have severe staining that doesn’t respond well to teeth whitening, you may need to opt for another solution like veneers or dental bonding. It’s also worth noting that your teeth and gums must be in good condition before you can move forward with whitening, meaning issues like decay, damage, or infection will need to be addressed right away.

After investing in professional teeth whitening, you’re going to want to do everything you can to preserve your beautiful results. Fortunately, you can help your bright smile last as long as possible by:

  • Reducing your intake of dark-colored beverages and food (i.e., coffee, tea, red wine, soy sauce, curry)
  • Practicing good oral hygiene (i.e., brushing twice a day, flossing daily, rinsing every day with an ADA-approved mouthwash)
  • Visiting your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings
  • Avoiding poor dental habits (i.e., smoking, biting your fingernails, using your teeth as tools)
  • Asking about at-home touch-ups to maintain your results
