I had braces for four and-a-half years. I’ve whitened my teeth and that’s it. Never had a cavity, never had to address any issues. I think to some degree I got lucky with genetics, but also I take very, very good care of my teeth. Obviously, it’s important for me to.
As far as aesthetically, no, just braces when I was in elementary school and middle school and then I’ve bleached since, here and there. I use the take-home trays at home. I just feel more comfortable with them. The same trays that we offer our patients when they come in for a teeth whitening.
