How to Have a Stellar Smile After Your Braces Come Off

Wednesday, November 30, 2016 | 8:12 pm

Getting braces as an adult is very common. Researchers estimate that 20 to 25% of orthodontics patients are adults. The procedure for adult braces before and after is similar to that of children, but if you’re new to it, here’s what you can expect when your braces finally come off and when it comes to whitening your teeth.

It’s only natural that you’d want white teeth to go with your newly straight smile. In most procedures, teeth are covered with a peroxide-based gel, which is placed on the surfaces of the teeth. The gum tissue is covered with a protective gel to protect it from the bleaching gel. A light is placed on the teeth, which accelerates its whitening effect, which includes three – 15 minute sessions that are conducted in just one dental visit.

Getting your braces off is definitely the most exciting part of the entire experience. By listening to your orthodontist’s advice and following this teeth whitening advice you can protect your investment and sport a perfect smile for life.
