Let’s Work Together To Keep Your Smile Healthy And Beautiful
Posted:May 25, 2018
Here at Southern York Smile Care in Shrewsbury PA, we approach all your dental needs from two separate angles—what we can do in our dental practice 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 whitening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening methods are also safe and effective and sometimes more affordable.
Additionally, we advise you regarding 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 avoiding these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.
Education 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.
