Here at Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa, we approach all your dental health needs from two angles: what the dentist can do in our office, and what you can do at home.
For example, teeth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office there are safe and effective methods for brightening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening processes are also safe and effective, but let you do it at your convenience.
Additionally, we advise you about food and drink choices that can impact your whitened smile. Be aware of staining agents such as coffee, tea, tobacco and soda. We understand that eliminating these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.
Mindfulness and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary drink can cut down on the contact your teeth have with it and help neutralize the acids. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can negate the results of teeth whitening.
