Teeth Whitening – After Care

Teeth whitening procedure involves the use of external agents to clear stain from the porous enamel surface of the teeth and unmask the natural color. You can see a difference in your smile once you go through the process of teeth whitening. But it is important to note that patients should take care of the teeth after the whitening procedure to ensure that the brightness lasts longer. So what should you know as a patient who has undergone or is willing to undergo teeth whitening at our Sacramento office? Our team of professionals will give patients the necessary instructions after the cosmetic procedure is complete. This blog post provides you an overview of what matters the most when it comes to protecting white teeth after the completion of teeth whitening.

Teeth Whitening – After Care

Oral Hygiene

Brushing and flossing are two important oral hygiene practices that can help you stay away from dental infection and improve the appearance of teeth. Our dentists may recommend the use of pastes that are not colorful and help improve your smile. It is also important to be aware of the correct technique to brushing teeth. This ensures that the enamel layer does not wear out because of hard brushing and the plaque and staining elements are cleared from teeth surface from time-to-time.

Food Habits

Dark colored fluids and food are one of the major contributors for teeth staining. It is good if patients are aware of the food items that can stain their teeth. Patients can reduce the consumptions of coffee, chocolate, tea, energy drinks and colas. Using straw for some of these drinks may be a great idea since the visible front surface of teeth may not get affected by the staining fluids.

Smoking and Alcohol

Our dentists may advise patients to avoid smoking and reduce the consumption of alcoholic beverages. Some alcoholic beverages such as wine and dark beer are capable of staining teeth. The nicotine in tobacco is also known to cause discoloration of teeth.

Dentists check the status of teeth before performing teeth whitening. If the patient has Bruxism, then a mouth guard may be provided to ensure that the teeth do not wear and they are in good shape.

Patient Testimonials

Beautiful office, friendly staff, terrific dental care.

by Trevor Derrett

Had a great visit today and got to know the people that work there. They made me feel comfortable as the change of ownership is taking place.

by Bonnie Schrader

I am so impressed with the entire experience. From the friendly reminders, to entering the office, and especially the dentist! My previous dentist Stephen C Ott, DDS, was incredible. I had the benefits of his gift since 1971. I was worried about finding a new dentist. However, I was blessed to have Dr. Ott recommend his dentist: Dr. Lillian Stojic. I recommend her to all!!!

I've been seeing dr stojic since I moved to town 18 years ago, my whole family has transitioned over there and I love the whole team! Keep up the great work!

Dr. Lilliana and her staff make getting teeth cleaned and a cavity filled as good an experience as possible. They get the job done with minimal pain and discomfort.

I just had a visit to Dr. Stojic's office. My ten year old daughter had an infected tooth that had to be extracted. She was so nervous and scared at the possibility of an extraction. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by her office manager and then by her equally kind assistant who brought us back to her room...

Dr. Lilliana and her staff are not only effective and efficient, but they also remove my anxiety. When I had to have a root canal, I was nervous about the pain. I was given the choice of Nitrous oxide gas and that calmed me.

by Gail M.

Dr. Stojic saw two of my children. The youngest was so comforted by her easygoing and confident demeanor that he was the quietest and most still 4 year old I've seen in a dentist chair! Our older son was very afraid of the dentist and has been to a couple other dentists who were unable to treat him because of his scared behavior. Dr. Stojic was very patient and helped him understand what she was doing at every step, which calmed him down so she was able to fill his cavities and even extract a tooth. We were thoroughly impressed with Dr. Stojic and her office and staff.
