Q: How can I keep my teeth white and bright?

Who doesn’t want a beautiful and bright smile? For many people, having whiter teeth brings additional confidence and a desire to smile more. At Dental Image Therapy Centres, we love to see how our patients can’t stop smiling after getting their teeth whitening done. It makes us feel good and our patients feel good too. If you’re dreaming about a bright smile, you’ve come to the right place. Read on.

First Things First

First of all, we recommend visiting your dentist and getting your teeth cleaned. Having regular checkups and cleanings is the best way to keep your teeth healthy and bright. Afterwards, you’ll be able to discuss with your dentist if teeth whitening is for you. At Dental Image Therapy Centres, our dentists will evaluate your oral health and offer options that fit work for you and your teeth. There are many store-bought teeth whitening products available but the safety of your teeth is important so book a consultation with your dentist to ensure that teeth whitening is safe for your oral health. 

Teeth Whitening 

If you’re a good candidate for whitening, it means your teeth and gums are healthy, and you don’t have any medical conditions that would prevent you from getting the procedure done. We offer professional bleaching at our Winnipeg dental clinics: Zoom! Whitening. After one hour, you will be able to see whiter teeth. A Zoom! Whitening procedure is a more convenient, long-lasting, faster way to get brighter teeth and does not use trays to bleach your teeth. 

Some Last, But Not Least, Tips

It’s not enough to just get professional whitening done if you want to keep your teeth bright and white. You need to follow some simple rules to help the whitening last longer:

  • Watch what you eat - acidic foods and drinks can stain your teeth, make sure to rinse your mouth after eating and drink plenty of water between meals
  • Maintain excellent and regular oral hygiene - brush and floss at least twice a day 
  • Always remember to get your regular dental checkups and cleaning 
  • Ask your dentist for recommendations about whitening toothpaste and other products that you can use at home 

If you’re not satisfied with how your teeth look and are considering whitening, book your consultation today. Dental Image Therapy Centres has two conveniently located clinics at Garden City Shopping Centre and St.Vital Centre. We can’t wait to see you and make your smile bright and beautiful.
