    Everyday Habits That Can Dull Your Pearly Whites

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Is your smile looking dull? Restore your naturally white smile with the dental whitening treatments at Webster Dental Care and by avoiding these harmful habits.

    • Drinking Coffee and Tea
      If you repeatedly drink several cups of coffee throughout the day, then you may be damaging your teeth. While one cup of coffee occasionally won’t harm your teeth, frequent coffee and tea drinking will discolor your teeth over time. Preserve your dental health by avoiding that extra cup of coffee and refraining from other staining beverages, such as soda.
       
    • Maintaining Bad Oral Hygiene
      Even if your eating and drinking habits are poor, your oral hygiene routine is your opportunity to daily cleanse your teeth. Be diligent about thoroughly brushing, rinsing, and flossing your teeth at least twice a day. Don’t let plaque fade your white smile by neglecting your dental health. Be sure to attend your routine dentist appointments for a more intense teeth cleaning.
       
    • Eating Stain-Causing Foods
      While most dental patients know that drinking colored beverages can stain their teeth over time, few understand that certain dietary habits can fade their teeth too. Prevent your teeth from becoming discolored by avoiding excessive amounts of deeply colored foods, such as blueberries. Consuming lemons can also take a toll on your dental health over time.
       
    • Brushing Too Hard
      Remembering to brush your teeth every day is vital to your oral and general health. Be careful about your brushing technique, as brushing too hard can wear down the enamel of your teeth. Weakening the protective covering of your teeth can make your pearly whites more susceptible to harmful stains.

    If you’re concerned that your dietary habits may be affecting your white smile, then make an appointment at Webster Dental Care today. Call us at (314) 266-2249 and visit our St. Louis office for more information on our general dentistry and preventative services.

    What to Expect from the Teeth Whitening Process

    Last updated 2 years ago

    For many people, obtaining a whiter smile has become the #1 cosmetic dental wish. Unfortunately, there are a myriad of foods, beverages, and bad habits that can cause dental stains. Most dental staining results from drinking coffee, smoking, and eating colored foods without rinsing or brushing often. Fortunately, a professional tooth whitening treatment can eliminate your unsightly dental stains.

    Here is an overview of what you can expect from professional, at-home teeth whitening treatment.

    • The Consultation
      Initially, your dentist will want to evaluate your teeth and determine whether you have any old fillings, crowns, or other dental conditions that might interfere with the professional whitening treatment. In some cases, fillings and crowns will need to be replaced following the whitening treatment so as to create a uniform look among your teeth. Next, your dentist will explain how whitening works, what you can expect, and why you may need to undergo follow-up treatments to maintain your new pearly white smile.
       
    • The Treatment
      An at-home, professional teeth whitening treatment requires you to visit your dentist for two visits. During your first appointment, your dentist will take impressions or molds of your teeth so that plastic trays can be custom-made for your smile. This usually takes place immediately after the consultation. During your second visit, your dentist will insert the trays to make sure no complications occurred during the mold or fabrication process. If adjustments need to be made, they will take place in the dental office. Lastly, your dentist will supply you with a special, professional-grade whitening gel.
       
    • The Follow-up
      You should apply the gel to your trays each night for three to four weeks to see dramatically white results. You should also avoid certain food and liquids that might stain your teeth. If you have any questions, contact your dentist immediately.

    If you would like to undergo professional, at-home whitening treatment, then call Webster Dental Care at (314) 266-2249 to have your custom trays made today. You could have a white, vibrant smile in just three weeks by calling us right now. If you want to know more about the services we offer, visit our website.
