Reasons for Whitening

There can be various reasons as to why someone may need teeth whitening. These are mainly due to habitual behaviors we all create. Some of the reason teeth become discolored may be:

-Coffee

-Black Tea

-Red Wine

-Berries and sweets

-Aging- enamel structure begins to weaken and discoloration happens easier.

-Tobacco

All of these items can become a habitual aspect in our lives. The regular use and occurrence of the above easily causes yellowing of your teeth overtime.

How Does Whitening Happen?

The process for whitening your teeth is fairly simple. It involves using whitening products that contain certain bleaching properties, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These bleaching properties attack stains on your teeth by breaking them into smaller stains allowing a brighter smile to shine through. Whitening products may not work on all teeth such as crowns, bridges, or certain types of discoloration. It is best to contact your friendly dentist to see what is the best fit for your teeth brightening needs.

Steps You Can Take for a Whiter Smile

On top of utilizing the great professional whitening at your dentist, there are some tips to help you maintain or increase your brighter smile.

-Update your toothbrush. When the bristles wear out, it is unable to clean as well thus leaving stains to set longer.

-Brush your tongue. It allows you to get rid of bacteria that would rub off on your teeth and cause your teeth to continue to stain.

-Use mouthwash that has hydrogen peroxide in it to increase whitening.

-Eat raw fruits and veggies as they are healthy for you, but also a natural enamel cleaner.

 

Having a brighter, whiter smile can help you gain momentum in your job, relationships, or build self confidence. Find out today what you can do, and contact Lifetime Family Dental for all your cosmetic dentistry needs.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Essentially, cosmetic dentistry helps to focus on building the positive appearance of one’s smile. It helps to build confidence through improving the areas of your smile that individuals may be less than pleased with. With cosmetic dentistry, the services may not be to affect the functionality of the teeth or mouth, but rather the aesthetic look. It is less a necessity, but more a desired service. There are several areas that cosmetic dentistry address.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

With cosmetic dentistry, there are various options for ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Each individual may have different needs and desires for what they are looking for. Cosmetic dentistry services include:

-Composite Bonding

-Dental Veneers

-Dental Implants

-Teeth Whitening

-Inlays/Onlays

-Full Mouth Reconstruction

What to Expect in Consultation

The initial consultation will help you gain understanding of what treatment moving forward looks like for your specific needs. You will be able to establish a connection with your dentist, and help them understand what you do or do not like about your smile. It will be a time of gathering information about your teeth, your past and present concerns and specific treatment options that best fit your needs. A few areas that may be addressed during consultation may include:

-Prior dental history, and dental records

-Impressions of your upper and lower teeth

-Discussion of color for your teeth

-Shapes and sizes of desired teeth

 

Your consultation will be a time to collaborate with your dentist. You will be able to create a treatment plan together, one that you are happy with and that is able to be done by your capable dentist.
