Why should I whiten my teeth?
Teeth whitening is more than just a trend, it is an inexpensive and easy way to make a significant impact on your look. In recent years, teeth whitening has increased in popularity, but it’s more than just being part of the crowd, increasingly people are working in high earning, fast pace careers, and part of being in the professional world is presenting yourself in a professional fashion. Your smile can say so much about you in the first seconds of meeting new people and engaging with your peers.
Patients come to us for teeth whitening because of stains that have accumulated from normal use. Food and drink products that are dark or have tannic acid are known for causing stains. This may include coffee, tea, a variety of sauces including soy sauce or tomato sauce. The use of tobacco products such as smoking can also cause teeth discoloration. Over time, our teeth begin to show their wear and tear. Whitening your teeth is an easy way to brighten your teeth from the years of use.
Caring for Your Whitened Teeth
Patients typically have a pleasant whitening experience with minimal sensitivity and no effect on daily activities. Our teeth whitening options allow you to receive all the benefits of whitening without extended time at our office. It is important to remember that teeth whitening isn't a permanent procedure, so to get the most out of your results, you should be sure to avoid foods and beverages that could stain your smile, including: wine, tea, soda, and coffee. If you are a smoker, you should also consider giving up the habit. Additionally, you will likely need an annual touch-up to maintain your beautiful, white smile.
