Have you ever noticed that your teeth are getting yellower or more stained? Everyone wants to be happy with how their teeth look, but sometimes no matter how well you take care of your teeth, they can become yellow or stained. This is often the result of aging, but it can also be caused by the things we put in our mouths, like coffee, tea or tobacco. Even brightly colored foods can stain your smile. Things like curry, berries, beets, greens, and food colorings can leave stains on your teeth. When they penetrate into the microscopic pores of your teeth, they can no longer be removed using a toothbrush and toothpaste. Even a professional dental polish will only remove surface stains. Professional teeth whitening is a great way to restore the beauty of your smile.
How Professional Teeth Whitening Works
Professional teeth whitening is an easy way to fix this problem and give your smile the makeover you want. Teeth whitening is a very popular dental treatment and is a very easy procedure to have done. The media has been bombarding you with all kinds of different whitening products recently, and it can be very confusing and difficult to know what to believe. At Kerr Family Dental, we like to keep things as simple as possible and can help you navigate this confusing area.
Professional teeth whitening results in more dramatic and reliable results than any over-the-counter method available today.
There is a lot of bad information out there when it comes to whitening, but the main thing to remember is it is all about the strength of the bleach and the amount of time it is on your teeth. We have different take-home options available from a semi-adjustable take home tray to a custom bleaching tray. We can use several different strengths of bleach depending on how fast you want it to work and how sensitive your gums are.
Either method will whiten your smile, but it is important to remember that the results are not permanent. With both methods, you will need to do periodic follow-up treatments to keep your teeth looking their whitest and brightest.
