Have you noticed that your teeth don’t look as white and bright as they used to? If you want a smile that looks more dazzling and less yellow, your Impression Dental Care dentist in Huntington Beach may recommend teeth whitening. By whitening your teeth at the dentist’s office, you can restore your smile and be proud of your smile.
There are many reasons your teeth change color and become dull or yellow over time. It can be caused by the foods you eat as well as the drinks you consume daily. You may also experience yellowing if you use tobacco or drink a lot of alcohol. Age is also a factor, as the enamel thins over the years and dentin, which is yellowish in color, begins to show more. Injuries and certain medications can cause teeth to darken or change color as well, resulting in a less than perfect smile.
Whitening your teeth is a simple process that can be done at your Huntington Beach dental office or in the comfort of your home. Your dentist will determine what whitening technique is best for your teeth and outline a plan to brighten your smile. Depending on your cosmetic issues, certain whitening systems may be used rather than others.
There are 4 different ways you can whiten your teeth – toothpastes, bleaching in the office, bleaching at home, and using over the counter products. The safest option is to bleach your teeth in the office or at home using a kit provided to you by your Impression Dental Care dentist. There is no way to measure the effectiveness of over the counter products, as various factors could result in lower concentrations of bleaching solution and effectiveness.
