Get a Picture Perfect Smile with Teeth Whitening
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Having a beautiful smile will give a great first impression. A set of gleaming white teeth can also improve your confidence and self-esteem.
Many things can dull the appearance of your teeth. The aging process can cause teeth to yellow. Certain foods, such as coffee, wine, berries, and tomatoes, as well as tobacco, can stain your teeth. Too much exposure to fluoride, exposure to tetracycline antibiotics, or internal damage to your permanent teeth can also cause discoloration.
It is not always possible to prevent discoloration of your teeth, but there are ways of obtaining a healthy looking smile in spite of this. Apart from avoiding foods known to discolor teeth and quitting smoking, there are cosmetic means to improving the appearance of your teeth.
The most reliable and safe method is in-office hydrogen peroxide whitening. With a system like Kors Deep Bleaching process used at Dazzle Dental, the natural structure of the tooth is left intact as stains are bleached away with a natural chemical process. The results are fast and permanent and can be easily maintained with at-home treatments. In office treatments can brighten your teeth by 8 shades.
Over the counter methods for brightening teeth are not as effective as an in-office treatment. You can opt for take-home trays from your dentist, or try over the counter methods including whitening toothpaste, strips, and gels, and rinses. Be aware that it will take longer to get results, and the lightening may not be even across all of your teeth.
If whitening procedures alone are not enough to create your picture perfect smile, porcelain veneers may be an option for you. Modern techniques and technology makes it almost impossible to differentiate between the veneers and your natural teeth. They can hide persistent stains and dental work, and can adjust the size, shape, and spacing of your teeth to create a picture perfect smile.
Not everyone is a candidate for teeth whitening procedures. Talk to your dentist to learn which whitening technique is right for you.
