People shouldn’t be able to tell just how much you love coffee whenever you smile.

Are you a professed coffee lover? Could you not imagine a morning without that cup of Joe? You aren’t alone. According to a 2015 teeth whiteningGallup poll, about 64 percent of US adults drink at least one cup of coffee a day. Of course, as you may already know, coffee can quickly turn a vibrant smile dull. Luckily, our Philadelphia dentists, Dr. Steve Gilbert and Dr. Carlos Velez, have your back with teeth whitening treatments.

While coming in for regular cleanings may certainly help remove those surface stains caused by what you drink or eat, if you really want to brighten up your smile then it’s time you talked to our Philadelphia cosmetic dentists about professional teeth whitening. During this cosmetic procedure, our bleaching agent can actually lighten the color of your teeth, giving you a more visibly whiter smile. Some people may even get a smile that’s up to 10 shades brighter in just one whitening treatment.

Caring for Your Whiter Smile

If you do decide to get professional teeth whitening, regardless of whether you choose to use our in-office system or our at-home trays, you’ll certainly want to keep your beautiful results for as long as possible. While simply brushing and flossing regularly can help to prevent yellow stains you may want to opt for whitening toothpaste, which can help prevent surface stains.

After your whitening session, you’ll want to be more careful about consuming coffee. After all, coffee does stain teeth and continuing to drink too much of it can affect your results; however, this doesn’t mean that you have to give it up altogether. If you brush after meals or at least rinse out your mouth after drinking coffee you can lessen the chances for dental stains.
