Why Would I Need Teeth Whitening?
Stained and discolored teeth occur due to numerous reasons. Some common culprits come from drinking too much coffee, tea or wine. Using tobacco regularly can also leave stains on your teeth. Taking certain medications for several years can cause stains and discoloration as well.
While brushing regularly, flossing and using mouthwash can help maintain your oral health, they can’t remove tough stains.
In addition, removing surface stains does not result in teeth whitening. Though there are some DIY options to consider, it’s always a good option to work with professionals like Dr. William Rice in Athens and leverage the knowledge and experience of his highly skilled team to whiten your teeth.
If you have unwanted stains affecting your smile or the DIY route just isn’t the option for you, we have you covered with our expert teeth whitening services in Athens, GA.

We offer these treatments and more, depending on your needs and the condition of your teeth.
What Can You Expect from Teeth Whitening?
With teeth whitening treatment, you can expect your teeth to be several shades brighter in just a single appointment. To help you maintain the results, you should follow an aftercare routine. For example, 48 hours after your teeth whitening treatment, avoid food and drinks that cause stains. These include chocolate, tea, coffee, soy sauce, curry powder, and more.
It is also recommended to avoid using colored toothpaste and from smoking e-cigarettes and tobacco products following a teeth whitening appointment. Once the 48-hour window is done, you can eat vegetables that have neutral acids like celery and carrots and then lighter-colored fruits like bananas and apples.
Make sure to brush your teeth and floss every day too, especially if you eat stain-causing food. Use an antiseptic mouthwash at least once a day to remove plaque-causing bacteria. You can use whitening toothpaste once or twice a week to get rid of the stains and help prevent the yellowing. Depending on your oral care and the whitening method used, you can get your teeth whitened every six months or after a year or two.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening

A professional treatment lasts longer and is more guaranteed than attempting on your own. Plus, you gain a boost in self confidence knowing you sport a brighter smile.
Professional teeth whiteners are safe and effective. There is also a certain level of confidence that comes knowing the process is done under the supervision of a dental professional. In most circumstances, it is worth the extra cost to visit the dentist to get results that are both long-lasting and safe.
