As an important part of keeping your smile consistently healthy and free of disease, most people know that they should attend checkup and cleaning appointments on a regular basis. However, you might not realize that occasionally brightening your smile might also be necessary to keep up your smile’s healthy appearance. Teeth stains are common and can develop naturally, even when you keep your teeth clean and healthy. Fortunately, erasing them is usually simple and convenient with professional teeth-whitening treatment. During your next visit, ask your dentist if you should consider teeth-whitening to improve your smile’s appearance.
How Teeth Lose Their Shine
Good dental hygiene and preventive dental care are designed to keep plaque and tartar from clinging to your teeth too long. Made of harmful oral bacteria, plaque and tartar are the main reasons behind tooth decay and gum disease development. Yet, over time, oral bacteria and food particles can begin to noticeably affect the color and shine of your teeth. This can result in a gradual, overall dulling of your teeth’s appearance, as well as more prominent, localized staining on one or more of your teeth.
Simple Smile Improvement with Teeth-Whitening
Teeth-whitening is one of the simplest and most convenient forms of cosmetic dentistry that we offer, providing a quick and convenient way to erase stains that appear on the surfaces of your teeth. With a set of custom-designed trays that fit comfortably over your teeth and a supply of safe but potent whitening gel, you can brighten your teeth from the comfort of home and on your own schedule. Simply wear the trays and gel for a couple of hours each day, and in as little as ten days, your teeth can be free of stains and several shades brighter than they were before.
