There are many reasons why teeth become discolored. As a person ages, the adult teeth often become darker as the enamel becomes less porous. Teeth can become stained by food; drinks such as coffee, tea and red wine; tobacco; antibiotic medications, and excessive fluoride in public drinking water.
Most agree that discolored teeth are a telltale sign of aging and bright, white teeth make people appear younger, more attractive and confident. That’s why teeth whitening is the most commonly requested cosmetic dentistry procedure.
Smile Studio Associates Dentistry offers two highly effective teeth whitening procedures to help you achieve a healthy, radiant smile.
The most popular teeth whitening procedure is performed in the dental office using a special light to accelerate the whitening process. Smile Studio Associates can also provide patients with home whitening kits. With this option, patients dispense a whitening solution into custom-fitted trays and wear them for a specified period of time, or overnight.
Do bleaching systems really work? Based on clinical studies, 96 percent of patients with teeth stains experience a lightening effect. Keep in mind that tooth-color fillings and dental restorations, such as bonding and veneers, will maintain the same color and will not change color when teeth whitener is applied.
To get your smile back to looking its best and to achieve the most uniform look and long lasting results, have your teeth checked and your teeth whitening system administered by a dental professional.
