Your goal every time you brush and floss your teeth should be to keep yourself safe against threats like tooth decay and gum disease. Oral bacteria pose a persistent threat, and a consistent routine can give you meaningful support in your aim to avoid restorative dental work. With that said, you can also expect to see your teeth remain attractive as you continue to fight the buildup of food debris and bacteria. Unfortunately, people sometimes struggle to maintain their appearance over time because stains build up on their enamel, even when they are effectively preventing cavities. At our Santa Monica, CA dental practice, we can greatly improve the color of your teeth with a same-day whitening procedure, and effectively remove those stains that your daily oral care practices are leaving behind.
Many Popular Foods And Drinks Can Stain Your Teeth
Because there are so many popular beverages and food products that leave stains on teeth, it can be hard to avoid some change to the color of your smile over time. Even as you effectively remove bacteria and leftover bits of food, chromogens and tannins from items you consumed can remain in place, and start to effect the brightness of your teeth. While the change to your appearance may be gradual, you can find yourself shocked to see just how much your teeth have changed over time.
Arranging A Single-Visit Whitening Procedure
In the course of just one visit, we are able to help patients see significant improvements to the color of their smile. Whitening products found at your local grocery store or pharmacy offer you some extra help in removing stains from the surface of your teeth, but they can fail to make a noticeable change to the way you look. During your one-visit procedure at our office, we use professional whitening agents that are more potent than over the counter alternatives, as well as a special light to speed up the safe teeth whitening process. At the end of your visit, you can marvel at how much brighter your smile has become!
Discoloration Is Not Always The Result Of Teeth Stains
Is the ideal whitening treatment always one that focuses on removing teeth stains? In some cases, discoloration can occur for different reasons. Some patients notice changes because enamel erosion is affecting the color of their smile; others have problems with discoloration after taking certain medications. In these situations, we can recommend the placement of custom dental veneers to make improvements. When these restorations are put in place, it can make teeth whiter, and it can lead to improvements to the shape, size, and alignment of teeth.
