Retaining Your Teeth Whitening Results

Teeth Whitening Marietta GA

Teeth whitening is the most sought-after treatment in cosmetic dentistry. Whiter teeth can instantly enhance your appearance and build your self-esteem. In fact, a brighter smile can make you look years younger than you really are. Fortunately, there are some highly effective (and convenient) options in professional teeth whitening, including in-office bleaching systems that can lighten your teeth by several shades in just an hour.

Teeth whitening, however, is not a permanent solution. Over time, your teeth may revert to their darker or more yellow hue. The good news is that there are things you can do to delay this process and boost the lifespan of your teeth whitening investment.

Avoid Staining Culprits Immediately After Whitening
In the initial 48 hours after your teeth whitening appointment, you’ll need to avoid dark-colored or staining foods. If it could stain a white t-shirt, don’t introduce your new white smile to it. In general, stay away from juices, dark sauces, tea and coffee. If you can’t live without that morning cup of coffee, consider using a straw to avoid contact with your teeth.

Brush and Floss Twice a Day
Don’t dismiss the importance of oral hygiene when it comes to the appearance of your smile. Dirty teeth can sabotage your teeth whitening investment, especially has plaque begins to accumulate and coat the surfaces of your teeth. Maintain or improve your daily brushing and flossing habits if you want to maximize your teeth whitening results.

Consider Whitening Oral Hygiene Products
There are many over-the-counter toothpastes and mouthwashes that are marketed to whiten teeth. While these can’t replace the results you’ll get with a professional whitening treatment at the dentist, they can be an excellent solution to help maintain your results on a daily basis.

Ask About Whitening Touch-Ups
When properly cared for, whitened teeth can stay white for an extended period of time, but the consumption of dark foods and other habits can lead to some staining. If you only have a few areas of your smile that aren’t staying white, you can ask your dentist about touch-up treatments using a professional-grade solution. At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we offer at-home whitening treatments with custom-trays, which can be the perfect way to retain a brilliant smile all year long!

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
