Teeth Whitening Can Make You Look Younger And Healthier
When you have white teeth, you often look younger and healthier to the outside world. We’re not talking about teeth so white that they look blue or unnatural – just teeth that look clean and well-cared-for. And that’s possible without damage to your teeth when you choose a dentist like Dr. Paige Woods who practices biocompatible dentistry that doesn’t work against your body in way.
We talked about several topics on social media this week – including how often to change your toothbrush and how stress can cause you to grind your teeth – but our focus was on teeth whitening for a better look and a better life.
Foods and beverages can darken and stain your teeth, but professional teeth whitening is safe and works well. Generally, we use hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to whiten your teeth through either an in-office treatment or a take home program.
In-office teeth whitening can be done very quickly and its effects can last for months or even years. In a single hour of treatment, we can take away a lifetime of staining in many cases. That’s because we apply a greater concentration of the whitening product since we can watch for the right results. In-office treatment can also be done safely if you have gum health issues.
Take home trays are custom-fitted – much better than those over-the-counter products – and may be necessary as little as 30 minutes to an hour a day for a few weeks. If you have staining or other types of discoloration that won’t clean away, we can cover the issues with dental veneers, another way to give you a youthful and beautiful smile.
There’s not much space to explain all this on social media, but during your free consultation you can get to know us and how we can help you.
