Posted on 3/15/2020 by Harry L. Dougherty DDS, MS
Anyone wearing braces eagerly anticipates the day that they can be removed, so they can show off their new, flawless smile. However, sometimes both adolescents and adults find that their teeth aren't as white as they were before wearing braces.
In this case, there are professional whitening treatments that can give you the smile you were originally looking for.
Ways to Treat Stained Teeth After Braces
We recommend that you wait at least one month before bleaching or whitening your teeth. Once you are ready for whitening, we offer several treatment options for your stained teeth after braces, including professional take-home trays, white strips or in-office bleaching.
Pros of Post-Braces Whitening
All of the benefits of whitening after braces are non-medical, and you may find that they improve your quality of life.
Improves Overall Appearance Now that your straightened teeth have improved your smile, whitening them will only enhance your appearance even more. After years and money invested in braces, you'll want your smile to look its absolute best.
Improves Self-Esteem Feeling good when you smile is important, especially after the investment of time and money required for braces. Whitening your teeth after braces can provide a self-esteem boost that can carry into all areas of your life, including your interpersonal relationships and those feelings of belonging.
Attracts More Attention Whether you are looking for attention or not, you may notice that you are getting more of it after having your teeth whitened. Your clean white teeth, along with your new self-confidence, will make it easy and pleasant for others to interact and converse with you.
