Day after day we find that one of the most asked about cosmetic services in our practice is teeth whitening. By eliminating unsightly tooth discoloration patients can take years off their appearance.
Before choosing in house power bleaching at our Redlands, CA office, it is important to understand how teeth become discolored. Foods, beverages, medical conditions, and lifestyle habits can dim the luster of your pearly whites. Tooth enamel is porous, which means that the teeth absorb particles of anything that contacts them. If something will stain white clothing, it will stain the teeth. Dark colored foods and beverages are some of the biggest culprits. Acidic substances and tobacco products can also stain the teeth.
In addition to external substances, there are certain conditions and medications that can cause tooth discoloration. An excess of fluoride and even some antibiotics have been known to discolor teeth. In cases of permanent stains such as these, we may recommend porcelain veneers to enhance the smile.
While there are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, most of them will only slightly improve discoloration or staining. The strength of these products do not compete with the power of professional whitening methods. Although not nearly as effective, we understand the lure of over-the-counter whitening methods. Their ability to be performed at home is convenient and attractive.
With our Zoom Advanced Power System, patients can have a dramatically whiter smile in just a single office visit. This option is especially beneficial for patients who have an upcoming event and they want to look their best.
If in house whitening isn’t for you, we offer professional at-home whitening kits. This allows you to privately whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home.
