What Teeth Whitening Can Do For You?

There’s nothing like a sparkling, white smile to brighten your day! It can be a huge
confidence booster to know that you’ve got an attractive, healthy looking smile. Studies
have shown that people associate bright, white teeth with youth and vitality. But what if
your pearly-whites aren’t looking so pearly-white?

Over time, you might notice that the color of your tooth enamel has changed. While
some tooth discoloration is a natural process, there are several factors that can cause
your teeth to become dull or discolored, including:

  • consumption of certain high-pigment or acidic foods
  • smoking or use of tobacco products
  • wine, tea, coffee, and soda consumption
  • poor dental hygiene or illness

If your teeth have become stained or discolored, you may have tried over-the-counter
tooth whitening products such as strips, gels, or rinses. While many these products can
produce satisfactory results, it can take many weeks of use before results are seen, and are usually very temporary.

Professional teeth whitening can be a winning option, and your dentist is a great
resource when it comes brightening your smile. After checking your teeth and general
oral health, your dentist can suggest the best whitening treatment to match the results
you desire.

One of the advantages of professional teeth whitening is that you’re likely to notice a
difference in the brightness of your smile almost immediately. In-house procedures can
be done chair-side at your dentist’s office, and with some occasional upkeep visits, you
can maintain your beautifully bright and white smile for years to come!
