Why Do I Need Teeth Whitening?
No one has perfect white teeth; they need good treatment. If you use tobacco, over time, the tobacco will make your teeth darker and turn them yellow. If you drink a lot of coffee or tea, the tannins can darken your teeth as well. There are also some medications, such as drugs used in chemotherapy or antibiotics, that can discolor your teeth. There are lots of reasons you may need to whiten your teeth.
Why Do People Whiten Their Teeth?
There are many reasons people want to whiten their teeth. Sometimes people want to whiten their teeth because they need to reverse discoloring left on their teeth by plaque or tartar. Also, people get their teeth whitened for a special occasion, such as a senior picture, graduation photo, or a wedding, so that their smiles look amazing in the pictures. People may also choose to get their teeth whitened because they are trying to look their best for a job interview or a potential promotion. Teeth whitening can also help you look younger. In fact, teeth whitening can take years off your face. You may even want to get your teeth whitened to look and feel better about yourself.
How is Teeth Whitening Done?
We have many different options for whitening your teeth. You could use a tooth whitening product, such as toothpaste and mouthwash. This is effective if you want to whiten your teeth a shade or two. You could also try using over the counter white strips. These products can whiten your teeth a few shades in two or three weeks. But if you need your teeth to be several shades whiter really fast, you will need to try something else.
We can give you whitening trays to use at home. You would use a special solution to put in the tray in the comfort of your own home. We could make the solution for you in our office. What if you need your teeth whitened in a hurry? We can do that as well. We can bleach your teeth in one sitting with whitening trays. We also can use laser technology to whiten teeth. We use a gel on your teeth, and then use a laser so that your teeth come out sparkly white. You may also get some trays to use at home as well. We tailor our cosmetic whitening program to fit the needs of each patient.
