Are you unhappy with the color of your teeth? Do you find yourself hiding your smile because of stains or discoloration? If so, teeth whitening may be the perfect solution for you! Solterra Dentistry offers safe and effective teeth whitening options to transform your smile and boost your self-confidence.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Several factors can contribute to tooth discoloration, including:
Food and drink: Certain foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries, can stain your teeth over time.
Tobacco use: Smoking or chewing tobacco can cause yellowing of the teeth and other oral health problems.
Poor oral hygiene: Failing to brush and floss your teeth regularly can lead to the buildup of plaque and tartar, which can cause discoloration and other oral health problems.
Aging: As we age, our teeth naturally become more yellow or gray due to the thinning of the enamel.
Genetics: Some people are born with naturally darker or thinner enamel, which can make their teeth appear more yellow or gray.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening works by using a special bleaching agent to break down stains and discoloration on the surface of the teeth. Solterra Dentistry offers several teeth whitening options, including in-office treatments and take-home kits.
During an in-office treatment, the dentist will apply a powerful bleaching agent to your teeth and use a special light to activate the agent. This will break down the stains and discoloration on the surface of your teeth, leaving them several shades whiter and brighter.
Alternatively, you can whiten your teeth at home using a take-home kit. The dentist will provide you with a custom-made tray that fits over your teeth and a bleaching agent to use in the tray. You will wear the tray for a specified amount each day, and gradually, your teeth will become whiter and brighter.
Are Teeth Whitening Safe?
Yes, teeth whitening is a safe and effective cosmetic dentistry option when performed by a qualified dental professional. At Solterra Dentistry, we use only the highest quality bleaching agents and take great care to ensure that your teeth and gums are protected throughout the whitening process.
However, it's important to note that some people may experience temporary tooth sensitivity or gum irritation after a whitening treatment. These side effects are usually mild and will subside within a few days.
How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?
Teeth whitening results are not permanent, but they can last several months to several years with proper care and maintenance. To maintain your bright, white smile, practice good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing your teeth regularly and avoiding foods and drinks that stain your teeth.
You may also touch up your whitening treatment periodically to maintain your results. At Solterra Dentistry, we offer take-home touch-up kits that allow you to whiten your teeth at home as needed.
