Teeth Whitening

Contact Dental Care of Rosewood today to learn more about our dental services.
It’s almost impossible to avoid teeth stains. The effects of the aging process and the everyday foods we consume mean that most of us will experience tooth discoloration over time. However, modern advancements in dentistry mean you don’t have to live with discolored teeth.

Professional teeth whitening can remove surface stains in your teeth, giving you a bold, attractive smile. If you have stained teeth, reach out to our team here at Dental Care of Rosewood today for top-class results in Columbia, SC.

Your Teeth Whitening Options

At Dental Care of Rosewood, we offer two main teeth whitening options:

Custom take-home kits. Our custom take-home kits are for individuals who want to lighten their teeth while at home. Our take-home kits deliver better whitening effects than store-bought whitening kits because we mold the trays from a real model of your teeth.
Professional in-office whitening.We offer professional teeth whitening in Columbia SC that fits your lifestyle and whitening needs, available exclusively through certified dental practices like ours. Let us customize the best whitening treatment for you!

Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Having stained or discolored teeth isn’t the only requirement that makes people excellent candidates for teeth whitening. You must also be from:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Oral infections of any kind

You must also have stains that topical bleaching can remove. Stains due to antibiotics use or fluorosis are highly resistant to teeth whitening procedures.

If you have stains that will not respond to topical whitening, we’ll recommend other solutions, such as dental bonding or porcelain veneers.

How Safe Is Teeth Whitening Treatment?

Teeth whitening is safe for your teeth and oral health. However, you may experience temporary heightened tooth sensitivity following the bleaching process—especially if you use over-the-counter whitening products that don’t contain fluoride and potassium nitrate.

Solution seepage is another risk with store-bought teeth whitening strips. The whitening material can irritate soft oral tissue and cause sensitive teeth. These side effects mean it’s best to work with a dentist when it’s time to whiten your teeth.

How to Keep Your Teeth White

If you love the new look of your freshly whitened teeth, then it makes perfect sense to take steps to make sure the results last a long time. Some of the things you can do include:

  • Cut down on your consumption of dark beverages.
  • When drinking canned beverages, use a straw to reduce contact with your teeth.
  • Cut down your consumption of sauces, berries, and other dark foods.
  • Eat celery, apples, pears, carrots, and other such food to stimulate saliva production if you consume a stain-causing food or drink.
  • Avoid smoking or chewing products containing nicotine.
  • Rinse your mouth thoroughly after eating or drinking.
  • Brush after every meal with abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush.

Most importantly, you should visit your dentist for a professional cleaning at least twice a year. Your conventional oral hygiene methods are not enough to eliminate stains and plaque completely.
