A bright, white smile is on everyone's wish list, but for many of us achieving a stunning smile takes a little work. Eating and drinking habits, smoking, age, and oral hygiene can gray or yellow your teeth, but fortunately, you can brighten your grin with these teeth whitening tips from Dr. Debra Halsey of Rochester Smiles in Troy.

Brushing

Brushing frequently is key to keeping your teeth from becoming stained from food or drink and to prevent yellow plaque and tartar from forming. Make sure to brush thoroughly, and try a toothpaste formulated to whiten teeth to help brighten your teeth.

Teeth Whitening kits

There are many kinds of teeth whitening products available at drugstores, including strips, gels, brush-on liquids, and trays. Depending on the percentage of hydrogen peroxide in the product, you can experience impressive whitening results with consistent usage. Ask your dentist at our Troy office to help you select the formula that will best work for you, especially if you have sensitive teeth.

Dental cleanings

Regular cleanings and exams at our Troy office are essential for keeping your teeth healthy and white. With our professional tools, we can buff away stains and plaque to brighten your teeth and improve your overall oral health.

Lifestyle habits

Your food and beverage choices can impact the whiteness of your smile, with red wine, coffee, and tea among the common culprits for teeth staining. Smoking can cause severe graying that is hard to remove. Quitting smoking improves both the appearance of your teeth and your oral and whole-body health.

In-office whitening

At our Troy office, we offer professional teeth whitening using a higher level of hydrogen peroxide than is available in over-the-counter formulas. A professional whitening treatment offers the most dramatic results, especially for teeth that are severely stained, yellowed, or gray.
