Brushing and flossing are the everyday dental-care routine that keeps your oral health in check. But do you know your teeth are prone to staining? There are many factors that cause your teeth to stain, and when they become discolored, your regular oral care routine doesn’t come to the rescue. In this situation, it is a good idea to opt for professional teeth whitening.
You can visit our clinic and opt for this procedure. We will ensure that you get rid of all the stains and retain your brightening smile.
What Changes Teeth Color?
The reasons for discolored teeth may vary according to your lifestyle. For instance, people who consume coffee, tea, and red wine regularly have discolored teeth over people who don’t. Besides this, the consumption of acidic foods also leads to staining your teeth.
Other factors that cause your teeth to stain include the use of tobacco in any form, age, trauma, disease, etc. Staining is also the result of the accumulation of plaque and tartar on your teeth, which usually happens when you don’t follow proper oral hygiene.
What is Involved in Teeth Whitening?
The process is quick, hassle-free, and completed in one visit only. We cover your gum line with a rubber-like substance so that only your teeth are exposed. We use bleaches in the form of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide and apply it all over the surface of your teeth. You are made to sit for some time. If required, we may reapply the bleach on your teeth. Finally, your teeth are cleaned, and you will notice your pearly white smile.
This in-office treatment must be opted for twice a year to maintain the whiteness of your teeth. We may also give you at-home dental trays containing the bleaching material to put on your teeth to maintain your smile. We will give you fluoride toothpaste to brush. Nevertheless, professional teeth whitening treatment is more promising than the latter.
What is the After-Care?
It is advised to take proper care of your oral hygiene to maintain the appearance of your smile in the long run. You must brush and floss your teeth twice a day to keep the accumulation of plaque and tartar at bay. Rinse your mouth using an antiseptic mouthwash. Avoid eating acidic foods and drinking soft drinks, tea, wine, or coffee. Visit us regularly for a dental examination, check-up, and professional teeth whitening.
