Dazzling white teeth are something that most people long for. The shelves in the stores are filled with products that are supposed to get rid of the stains that are on your teeth. Those products might help your teeth to become one or two shades whiter, but they are not going to give you a dazzling smile that you so desire. If you truly want to get rid of the stains that are on your teeth, make an appointment here at Taglia Advanced Dentistry for whitening. We will help you to have the smile that you desire.
What Do You Need to Know About Whitening?
Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures that we do. Here is what you need to know before you decide whether or not you want to have your teeth professionally whitened. Most of the time, the reason why your teeth are not as white as they could be is that they are stained. The foods that we eat and the liquids that we drink can leave stains on your teeth over time, even if you brush after every meal.
Blueberries and other berries, tomato sauce, and even curry are among the foods that can stain your teeth. The list of teeth staining beverages includes coffee, tea, and red wine. If you smoke, that will stain your teeth as well. Smoking can cause other problems for your teeth and your overall oral health, so you need to consider quitting. The more you consume of these foods, the worse the staining can be.
You also do not need to eat or drink any of the common culprits to have a dull smile. Time will take a toll as well. Over time, your teeth will look duller, no matter what you eat. If you decide to have your teeth professionally whitened in our office, we will start with cleaning. We will also perform a quick oral exam because we do not want to apply the solution if you have a problem with your teeth or your gums.
The solution that we use will most likely contain a combination of bleach and peroxide. It is not a good idea to try this yourself at home since we know the proper way to do it. After the whitening, we might polish your teeth so that they will feel as good as they look. There is another way that we can whiten teeth that do not include bleach. We can use a low-level laser on your teeth for a set amount of time. It is safe, and it will whiten your teeth without chemicals.
