Do you avoid smiling because your teeth are dull or yellow? Teeth whitening offers an effective way to remove stains that develop over the years. Drs. Julie Camp-Tone, Michael Eibling, M. Glenn Barker and Benjamin Wietecha; your Hilton Head Island dentists at Hilton Head Dental Team, explain how you can benefit from professional teeth whitening.
Professional teeth whitening gets rid of stubborn stains
Have you ever had a hard time removing wine or coffee stains from a white tablecloth? The same foods and beverages that stain that tablecloth will also stain your teeth. Cola, soy sauces, berries, popsicles, tea and other dark or brightly colored foods and beverages are among the chief staining culprits. As you age, your teeth tend to become more absorbent, which means it's even easier for your teeth to become stained. Professional teeth whitening provides an excellent way to remove stains caused by foods, beverages or smoking.
Professional whitening offers quick results
After just one visit to your dentist's office, your teeth will be approximately three to eight shades whiter. The whitening products available in stores will lighten your teeth, but they usually don't offer the dramatic results that professional teeth whitening can.
Professional teeth whitening is safer
Some whitening toothpastes are so abrasive that they erode tooth enamel, which actually makes it more susceptible to staining. Your dentist uses strong, yet gentle, whitening agents that safely whiten your teeth. Your dentist will also make sure that your gums and roots are adequately protected from the whitening agent. Unfortunately, when kits don't provide effective protection, your sensitive tissues can become irritated.
Professional whitening results are long-lasting
Depending on the type of drugstore whitening product you use, your results may only last weeks or months. When you choose professional teeth whitening, you can expect to enjoy a whiter, brighter smile for as long as five years. If you avoid smoking and don't eat or drink dark or brightly colored foods, your results will last a long time.
