Getting your dream smile begins by deciding what a dream smile looks like for you! Some patients would love to change the shape of their smiles, while others are seeking to making minor adjustments here or there.
We find that no matter what sort of movement patients want for their teeth, they most often want the color to be improved as well! Having a whiter, brighter smile is at the top of most of our smile dreams, but how easy is it to achieve that dream?
Let’s take a look at teeth whitening today. We have some information that might surprise you!
When Whitening is Beneficial
Whitening is never necessary for the health of your teeth, but it does do major work for your confidence! If you are afraid to smile or show your teeth because you are unhappy with the color, whitening is beneficial for you.
No one should feel like they need to hide their teeth! If your confidence and your ability to interact with the world is hindered by the color of your teeth, then you need to set up an appointment and find out more about how whitening can transform your life!
Will Boxed Kits Work?
Of course, there are boxed kits at the drugstore. You’ve walked past them time and again and maybe even picked one up, but you’ve never been sure that it would work.
Here’s the thing about boxed kits: They work, but at what price? They take a lot longer to achieve results, which means that your teeth will be exposed to whitening solution much more often. That constant exposure can cause damage to your tooth enamel which will lead to teeth sensitivity.
The Zoom! Procedure
When you come for whitening in the office, you have a different experience because we know how to help you improve the color of your smile without putting your dental health at risk. We use Zoom! Whitening for our in-office whitening patients.
The procedure is very easy and quick! You can walk in and expect to walk out with a noticeably different shade of teeth! We begin by placing a peroxide gel directly on your teeth. We then activate the peroxide with an advanced light source that will help eliminate stains up to eight shades in one appointment!
The Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedure allows you to get dramatic results very quickly, so it is perfect for a big event coming up! Don’t waste your time on a boxed kit that won’t get you the results you need. Instead, go for Zoom!
Maintaining Your New Smile
Once you have the smile of your dreams, you won’t want to let it go back to something you’re afraid to show. There are things you can do to protect your teeth from discoloration in the future.
Be Careful with Stain-Causing Foods
Some foods can cause stains. We usually think about tomato sauces and dark berries. The dark pigmentation affects the color of your teeth if you don’t take precautions.
We recommend keeping a brush handy so that when you eat these foods, you can give your teeth a quick cleaning to remove the juice from your tooth enamel.
Know Which Beverages Are Harmful
You are probably already aware of harmful beverages for your tooth color: tea, coffee, soda, and red wine are all potentially harmful for your smile. We recommend drinking from a straw whenever possible or avoiding some of these beverages completely.
You can also brush your teeth after drinking a stain-causing beverage to remove the evidence from your teeth!
There are many ways to improve your smile but having a beautiful white color rises to the top of the list every time. We want our patients to have smiles they are proud to show off, which is why we provide the option of Zoom! whitening.
