At-Home Tips for a Whiter Smile

Cosmetic dentistry doesn't need to be an expensive procedure. Here are a few tips:

  • Brush and floss daily. Believe it or not, preventive dentistry is better than most cosmetic procedures. Brushing and flossing daily will help remove plaque and prevent the yellowing of teeth for the most part. Using a special tooth whitening toothpaste, and brushing and flossing the right way, are also important points or factors to consider. Here are videos to show you the right way to brush and floss.
  • A professional dental cleaning can remove those tough stains that daily brushing and flossing can't remove. Professional dental cleanings should be done twice a year and consists of your Newport Beach and Garden Grove cosmetic dentist scaling, polishing, and removing accumulated tartar from tooth surfaces and under gums. Dr. Bui loosens the tough stains and washes them away using a gentle stream of water to rejuvenate your smile. Easier and faster than most cosmetic dentistry procedures.
  • Dr. Bui also provides patients with home teeth whitening. He takes impressions of your teeth to make custom-fitted upper and lower trays. The patient places the provided bleaching gels in the trays and wears them for an hour. Depending on the severity of your stains, you may need to do this for two-to-three times a week after dinner.
