Engine rebuild with oil teatment?

Hi me and my brother rebuilt the engine and my civic and replace pistons.... Piston rings....all gaskets...and all that good stuff... I was wondering if I can use oil treatment because we didn't replace valve seals due to money and it burns oil at an idle ....the engine has over 1000 miles on it since the rebuild and the piston rings were said to be built in at 500.....can I use STP oil treatment to stop burning oil now?

    wait a while.

    1000 miles isn't really a lot of break in miles.

    get to about 5000 and see what's happening.
