Everyone knows that sparkling white teeth make a great first impression, but keeping your teeth sparkling white does more than improving your appearance. The whitening process also removes the deposits in the dark area between your teeth where real problems begin, such as the buildup of plaque, tartar and bacteria. When these things remain in your mouth, they can cause problems, including periodontal disease that has been shown to impact your overall health.
How White Teeth Can Impact Your Confidence
The image you project to others is part of your self-confidence. When you know you look your best, you are more relaxed and able to devote more attention to your clients, friends or the general public. If you are ashamed to smile because of stained teeth, you may tend to cover your smile with your hand. When you whiten your teeth, you can freely smile all you want because you know it looks good.
Some of the most common causes of stains and discolorations of teeth are:
- Coffee, tea and red wine
- Certain medications
Brushing alone will not remove the stains. It requires professional cosmetic dentistry to restore your teeth to their natural brightness.
What is Teeth Whitening?
You may know about home whitening toothpaste and other home remedies, but these take months for results, and sometimes these remedies don’t work at all. When we whiten teeth, we offer quick, efficient results. Professional teeth whitening is safer and more effective because we care for the health of your teeth and gums.
Our cosmetic dentistry experts may use several types of tooth-whitening procedures such as gel-filled trays, laser teeth whitening and others according to the extent of your discoloration. Some procedures may be done in our offices. Other treatments may be done at home with the guidance of our dentists. The fastest procedure that can achieve the most dramatic results in about an hour is done in our offices.
