As we grow older, it becomes harder and harder to maintain a pearly white smile. From damage to stains to general use, there are nearly constant factors working to undermine the health and look of your smile. There is an alternative, however!
With same-day whitening, we can safely and easily rejuvenate your smile. And all while ensuring that your long-term oral health goals are being met! Today, your Newport Beach, CA dentist outlines our whitening process, and how it might be of benefit to bringing life back to your smile!
A History Of Stains
Our mouths serve as a documentation of your oral history. The things that you have eaten, drank, or even smoked all leave remnants of their existence within our enamel. Some of these are particularly staining, such as coffee, red wine, or tobacco smoke. For the health and appearance of your teeth, we highly suggest limiting or even ceasing these activities.
But even the more innocent foods we consume can cause discoloration, even including tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables. We often think that natural foods are inherently better for us, but that does not mean that produce does not have its dangers as well.
Many patients have health-related tooth discoloration, as well. This can be caused by medicines such as chemotherapy or in vitamin deficiencies. Speak with your dentist about the possibility of those affecting your smile and seeing if maybe those are a better solution for your mouth.
Wash Them Away
Are you sick and tired of your yellowed, stained teeth and want a change to your demeanor? Same-day whitening might be a significant help to you.
Whitening your teeth is a simple procedure that we safely and privately perform in our office. We use a bleaching gel that gently lifts stains to the surface. Our procedure takes special care to ensure that the strength and integrity of the teeth are not damaged. Then once the gel has been applied to the surface of the teeth, we activate it utilizing a high-powered light. After a few minutes of exposure, you’ll be ready to go! Patients are often astounded at how short the procedure can be.
Patients are sometimes concerned with tooth sensitivity. We take great care in lifting stains softly rather than flash bleaching harshly. This affordable option is almost like soaking dishes in order to lift and remove dirt and grime.
