Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Tooth discoloration can be caused by many different factors, including pigmented foods and beverages, smoking, sugary and acidic foods, aging, poor oral hygiene, genetics, and certain medications. While some of the causes of discoloration can be prevented, others are completely out of your control. There are two different types of staining: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are typically caused by foods, beverages, and tobacco products. This is the type of discoloration that can usually be lifted with professional whitening. Intrinsic stains can occur as a result of medications, so this is something that will need to be discussed with your doctor.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
At our Refresh Whitening Spa, we offer two different types of teeth whitening so you can brighten your smile in whichever way sounds best for you:
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
If you are looking to lift discoloration from your teeth in the comfort of your own home, take-home teeth whitening is available. After checking your smile for existing oral health issues, you will get customized trays and a whitening gel that’s stronger than anything you can find over the counter. After about two weeks of wearing the trays for a set amount of time each day, you will see the beautiful results.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you would rather that we handle your whitening experience, we also offer in-office teeth whitening at our Refresh Whitening Spa. In just a single visit to the dental office, you can leave with a smile that’s several shades whiter!
Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
When you whiten your smile, you need to take the necessary steps in order to maintain your results. Here are some tips to help:
- Limit your intake of dark-colored foods and beverages, like coffee, tea, and red wine.
- Maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine.
- See your dentist for regular cleanings and checkups.
- Avoid unhealthy habits that can weaken your tooth enamel, like biting your nails and smoking.
- Ask about touch-up treatments.
Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening
Are you looking for a way to enhance the natural beauty of your smile? Teeth whitening may be the solution that you’re looking for. Not only is it an effective solution to discoloration, but it can be completed in a timely manner as well. However, it is important that you consider the cost ahead of time. After all, no one wants any unnecessary surprises on their bill. Here are some things for you to keep in mind.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
While brushing and flossing at home removes plaque and food debris, tooth stains can be a stubborn issue to address on your own. This is especially the case for stains that have developed over many years, making them impossible to remove with over-the-counter products alone.
