Dazzle them with your brightness!
It seems like there are a variety of products and services that whiten your teeth these days, so it’s easy to get confused. Toothpastes? Rinses? Home kits? Whitening strips? Whitening gels?
Confused? We can help – read on.
What’s all this about?
Tooth enamel (the hard material that covers our teeth) is actually porous, meaning it absorbs much like a sponge does (well maybe not as much as a sponge, but you get the idea).
Tooth enamel absorbs from the foods we eat. Certain foods like wine, coffee and others tend to stain the teeth this way. Instead of being white or close to it, the teeth start to pick up a yellowish hue.
Teeth yellow with time…
Teeth yellow with time because of these foods. Unfortunately, the usual day-to-day hygiene is not enough to remove these stains that have now penetrated the enamel.
.. and affect your appearance.
A bright smile is a sign of vitality and youth and always makes a statement. Once your teeth start to yellow, it can become quite noticeable. It can affect your appearance and make you look older.
Your dental visit helps, but cannot reverse the stains
Your dentist can, to some extent, improve the appearance of your teeth by polishing them during your regular visit, but this is not often enough to remove the ‘internal’ stains that have accumulated.
Whitening your teeth can make a big difference in your appearance
Who doesn’t want a nice bright smile? Teeth whitening is a great way to achieve a beautiful smile and can take years off of your appearance. It is one of the easier and inexpensive ways to dramatically enhance your smile.
Okay, I’m interested! But there are so many options.
We know. It seems like there are a vast array of dental services and store options available. We’ve seen and tried many different whitening procedures and we are continuously choosing the best alternatives on the market for our patients.
In general, we always recommend you consult your dentist before starting any whitening regimen. Depending your situation, there may be certain options which will be more effective and yield better results for you.
Is it expensive?
Some in-clinic chair side treatments can be expensive – we actually don’t tend to recommend many of them as they tend to have undesirable side-effects.
But there are some whitening regimens that are only available from your dentist that you use at home under your dentist’s supervision that are very effective and affordable.
