Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures available.
Cosmetic teeth whitening restores the look of teeth before they were exposed to food, beverages, and other things that tend to stain tooth enamel. However, teeth whitening is not permanent, but it can last a long time if used in conjunction with habit changes. Professional teeth whitening procedures are one of the best ways to brighten a dull, stained, or discolored smile.
There is a variety of things that cause teeth to become discolored. As we age, the outer layer of enamel is worn off teeth and the dentin is exposed. Caffeine and tobacco also hasten the wearing away of enamel. Since dentin is darker than the enamel, worn teeth appear dull and dingy.
Teeth also absorb certain chemicals in food and drinks. Coffee, tea, some sauces, and berries are some of the worst culprits for staining teeth. Brushing and flossing can help to prevent these stains, but even the most vigilant among us sometimes experience staining over the course of their lives. Stains can also be caused by other factors unrelated to what a person eats. Injuries, flurosis, and medications can all cause teeth to discolor. Unfortunately, brushing and flossing do nothing to prevent this type of staining.
Is staining reversible?
Luckily, there is a way to reduce the effects of staining on the teeth, regardless whether the problem is due to internal or external factors. Whitening products are available for at-home use, but the effects from these products are minimal. The products might also be abrasive and cause more damage to the enamel than would a professional whitening procedure.
We offer teeth whitening procedures that are gentle and result in a significant change in tooth color. Tooth whitening is not considered permanent, but it can last for up to five years, especially if a person is able to get control of the problem causing discolored teeth.
