It sneaks up on you. The day you leave us after a dental cleaning, your teeth are sparkly clean. However, over time, your teeth will grow less and less white. As you age, your teeth are less white. It’s not your teeth’s fault. You put them through a lot. While you put your teeth through a lot, the good news is that we can fix your less than white teeth. Did you know we offer teeth whitening? Let Bryan Hill, DDS tell you about getting back those sparkly white teeth.
Why Do I Need Teeth Whitening?
It’s a rare individual that keeps the same white shade of teeth throughout their lives. If you are a smoker, tobacco smoke can yellow your teeth. Drinking coffee and tea can cause your teeth to become discolored, as well. With age, your teeth can appear darker. There are also medications that can darken your teeth, such as antibiotics and chemotherapy medication. If you are ok with the color of your teeth - we are too. However, if you don’t like the way your teeth look, we can help you whiten your teeth.
Often, people get their teeth whitened for many reasons. Sometimes, people whiten their teeth because they want to look picture perfect for a photo or a special occasion, such as a wedding or a graduation photo. You may be going for a job interview for a promotion. Or perhaps there is no special occasion, and you just want your teeth to look and feel your best.
How is Teeth Whitening Done?
There are lots of ways we can whiten your teeth. You can try to whiten your teeth over time using a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash. This will whiten your teeth a couple of shades over several weeks. You may also want to try Whitestrips. These can whiten your teeth several shades after you wear them for a couple of weeks. If you need a lot more whitening, or you need your teeth whitened in a short amount of time, we can handle the task.
We may need to have you use whitening trays at home. We prepare the trays for you. If you need whitening fast, we can do the whitening all in one day. We can use speed-whitening trays with bleach solution. We can also use a laser to whiten your teeth by applying gel and sparkling them up with a laser. There are lots of ways that we can get your teeth white and sparkling - we can even take a few years off your face with whiter teeth.
