A smile is as universal language. First impressions are made from our smile. Therefore, we have all the reasons to desire a set of pearly white teeth. Nevertheless, our teeth can get dull, stained or discolored due to our lifestyle and diet. For instance, acidic foods can remove the enamel (protective coating) on your teeth which can dull them; dark and colored drinks like coffee and tea and heavily pigmented foods can leave stains on your teeth. Eating and drinking these kinds of foods will form stains and discoloration that can leave you with a less than perfect smile.
Good News! Today, no one needs to get anxious about dull, stained and discolored teeth which can result in a timid smile. Whitening your teeth is very easy which generates a positive first impression with a confidently beautiful smile.
There are different products and procedures to eliminate dull, stained and discolored teeth. There are stains that are extrinsic (superficial) that can be eliminated by over-the-counter products and at home procedures.
But there are stains that are intrinsic (inside your teeth) which make your teeth look bluish or grayish. These kinds of stains are caused by exposure to minerals, ingestion of fluoride, trauma, aging and untreated extrinsic stains. This discoloration cannot be treated by over-the-counter products but needs an In-Office Teeth Whitening procedure.
Teeth Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures that uses hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to brighten teeth and reverse discoloration. It is a one- hour treatment in the dental clinic.
Among the most popular In-Office Teeth whitening products are Zoom and Glo. These two are known worldwide and most patients are satisfied with the results of either one of these procedures.
Depending on lifestyle and diet, some people may have to re-whiten after a few months, while others may not need to re-whiten for a year or more.
Teeth Whitening will help you achieve the forever smile you want to achieve— that confidently beautiful smile!
