Maintaining Your Smile After Teeth Whitening Treatment

Maintaining Your Smile After Teeth Whitening Treatment

You’ve just completed your in-office professional teeth whitening treatment with your dentist at Edinburg Family Dentistry. Everyone absolutely loves your fresh new smile, and your confidence has soared! You definitely want this investment to last as long as possible. How can you maintain your smile after a professional teeth whitening treatment?

Don’t revert back to your old bad habits!

Coffee, tea, and especially red wine are all major stain contributors. If you absolutely must allow yourself the pleasure of these drinks, then immediately rinse your mouth after treating yourself. Brush your teeth frequently especially after eating and drinking stain-inducing foods including berries. If you have the habit of smoking, we urge you to quit. Not only does it stain your teeth yellow, but it’s also damaging to your overall health and well-being.

Follow up with at-home whitening treatments.

Our office will provide trays customized to your teeth along with whitening gel you can use in the comfort of your own home and time. Be diligent about keeping up the care of your teeth and oral health. You deserve to keep those gorgeous pearly whites looking fresh and clean! Visit your dentist at least twice each year for examinations and cleanings that will ensure you a fresh, clean smile. Your oral health is vital to your overall health and happiness.

Call Edinburg Family Dentistry today to schedule a teeth whitening treatment for you! This affordable investment is just what you need to build up for confidence and feel great about a new you! Call us for any more questions you may have or if you are contemplating a teeth whitening treatment.

What we are doing to keep you and your family safe when you come to our office

We hope you and your family are in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While may things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.

For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at one at a time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
