Keeping your teeth healthy doesn't necessarily change their worn or yellowed appearance. However, regular cleanings at your dentist’s office coupled with fast and easy professional teeth whitening sessions can improve your smile’s appearance and give you the pearly whites you have always wanted. Learn more about cleanings and teeth whitening with Fairlawn Family Dentistry in Topeka, KS.
Regular Teeth Cleanings Regular cleanings take place at your dentist’s office every six months. These important appointments benefit your oral health by removing all of the plaque and tartar on your teeth. Additionally, regular cleanings allow your dentist to examine your teeth and mouth to spot any abnormalities or dental conditions. An examination twice a year can mean the difference between conservative and more complex or invasive treatments.
Professional Teeth Whitening Teeth whitening can help you lift the color of your teeth. Results from a teeth whitening session are immediate and last from six months to a year depending on how often your teeth come into contact with stain-causing elements and your oral care routine. Since many patients have touch-up whitening sessions, you can time them with your regular cleanings to get the best of both worlds. This saves you a day off of work or school and an extra trip to your dentist’s office in addition to killing two birds with one stone.
Regular Dental Examinations in Topeka, KS Seeing your dentist twice yearly can truly benefit your oral health.
