Who doesn’t want a bright, beautiful smile? Most of us are born with brilliantly white teeth, but life tends to take a toll on the brightness of our smiles. Several different factors can affect the color of our teeth, including the foods we eat and the beverages we enjoy every day. For example, coffee and red wine can stain our teeth and make them look less dazzling than we would like them to be. However, no matter how careful we are with what we eat and drink, the simple passing of years can cause our teeth to become yellow and look dull.
There are over-the-counter (OTC) teeth whitening products that you can buy at your local store, but many of these products fail to live up to the promises made by their expensive marketing teams. First of all, everyone’s teeth are a different shade of white, and OTC products are one-size-fits-all. This is an ineffective way to brighten your smile. For this reason, professional teeth whitening is the best choice.
At our practice, the final color of your teeth can be chosen from a shade guide so we can make sure we’re getting your teeth the exact shade you want them to be.
Stained teeth can have several different causes, not just food and beverages. Trauma and accidents can cause your teeth to stain, and you may have had reactions to certain medications. Also, if you have ever used any type of tobacco product, your teeth are likely discolored.
Dr. Greg Campbell offers professional in-office teeth whitening with the effective Opalescence Boost whitening system. This system uses a 38% hydrogen peroxide stain-removing concentration, as well as fluoride and potassium nitrate, which helps to strengthen your tooth enamel and minimize sensitivity. The whitening gel is carefully applied to your teeth and activated. About an hour later, you will notice dramatically whiter teeth.
So, how long will your teeth stay beautifully white? If you take good care of your teeth with regular professional cleanings and excellent oral hygiene at home, your smile will stay bright for a long time. Then, when you need to whiten your teeth again, you can visit our office to have the procedure repeated.
