Orthodontic treatments, such as braces or clear aligners, are primarily focused on correcting issues related to the alignment of the teeth and jaw. However, once these devices are removed, you might find that your newly straightened teeth are not as white as you would like them to be. This discrepancy can be due to several factors, including staining from foods and drinks. Teeth whitening after orthodontic treatment is a popular option for many patients seeking to enhance the appearance of their smile.

Dr. Kurt Bray or Dr. Robert Olsen offer teeth whitening following orthodontic treatment to provide you with a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing appearance to the smile. We are pleased to offer take-home whitening options to brighten and enhance your new smile. Teeth whitening relies on a powerful whitening gel which is applied to your teeth. When you receive take-home whitening, our orthodontists will provide you with custom-made whitening trays into which the gel can be placed, and you can wear them on your own schedule. Over a period of several weeks, your teeth will gradually lighten in color until they reach your desired shade of white.

Here are a few tips on keeping your smile bright following your whitening treatment:

  • Avoid stain-causing food and beverages
  • Practice good oral hygiene
  • Consider “touching up” your teeth periodically with additional whitening options
  • Avoid tobacco products, as these can stain your teeth
  • Make and keep regular dental visits to receive professional cleanings
  • Consider using a straw when drinking beverages that may stain
