You can have a dazzling smile with a professional teeth whitening procedure. Dr. Roy is an expert at providing patients with both preventative dental care and cosmetic dentistry solutions. This ensures that her patients stay in excellent oral health so that they can improve the appearance of their smile whenever they want to.
There are many reasons that teeth become dull or yellow. Drinking coffee, tea, or eating foods that stain can create yellow teeth. Additionally, smoking cigarettes or using chewing tobacco will age teeth very quickly. Even smokers in their twenties may find that their teeth look decades older than they should. Simultaneously, even the healthiest of people may lose the shine and luster of their teeth with age and time. Fortunately, Dr. Roy can help.
Teeth whitening procedures can restore teeth to the gorgeous white appearance they had years ago. This is one of the easiest and fastest ways to make a person look younger and more attractive. Match.com recently conducted a study where they polled over 5,000 single people across the country, and both men and women agreed that a beautiful smile was the most-attractive quality in someone they were looking to date. This was more important than any other physical attribute or personality trait. By simply brightening your smile, you could change your appearance and how people perceive you.
There are several options for whitening your teeth, including:
- Whitening strips. This is an over the counter solution that can be purchased at any local drug store. They can be placed on your teeth after brushing and worn throughout the day or evening. The challenge is that they can become loose and feel strange. Additionally, they only whiten teeth by around two shades, so the results are not very dramatic.
- Whitening toothpaste. Using this type of toothpaste can help keep your teeth bright in between professional treatments but it doesn’t produce a strong effect on its own. The results are more of a brightening but won’t necessarily “whiten” your teeth effectively.
- Whitening gel. There are two ways this can be applied – in an over the counter treatment or with a professional solution. The over the counter treatment has several challenges. The solution only whitens by around two shades and will commonly leak out of the trays because they don’t fit snuggly. Professional trays are made using a mold of your mouth so that the fit is perfect. This prevents any solution from leaking into the back of the mouth. Additionally, the solution is stronger, so the results are dramatic and stunning.
- Laser whitening. This is the latest in whitening treatments and is done in a dental office. Whitening solution is placed on the teeth, and lasers are used to activate it for immediate results. Teeth look beautifully white afterwards without any discomfort.
