When is the best time to whiten your teeth?

| September 21, 2010

sparkling_white_teethPatients ask all the time when they should touch up their tooth whitening.  My recommendation is to whitening your teeth the evening after you get your teeth cleaned at your favorite Columbus dentist.  You could also do it the next day.

Since how white your teeth are is a personal preference you will want to apply the whitening solution after your cleaning, each day for 3 to 10 days depending on whether you need a touch up tooth whitening or this is the first time you have whitened your teeth.

At your dental cleaning we get all the gunk off your teeth and this allows the whitening solution to be better absorbed by your teeth.  This means you will see the tooth whitening results faster!
