For most of us, holiday time is picture-taking time. If your smile is looking dull or dingy you may consider a teeth whitening treatment. Having a whiter brighter smile can be easily achieved in a safe, affordable and painless procedure.
Common Causes of Tooth Discoloration
Most tooth discoloration is caused by age in addition to dark foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, soda and wine. Other contributing factors include smoking and tobacco products, poor oral hygiene and certain medical conditions.
At Home Treatment
Red Maple dentist Stephen A. Miller, DDS, FAGD offers the convenience of at home teeth whitening to boost your smile. At home teeth whitening with Dr. Miller is customized to give you a professional quality treatment without causing damage to gums or tooth enamel giving you a superior result compared to over the counter methods. Professional teeth whitening offers a higher concentration of active ingredients needed for drastic results that is only available through a dentist office. The custom fit teeth bleaching trays distribute gel to the teeth evenly for uniform results. There is also limited contact with the gums, a common concern of patients.
In addition to a whiter smile, these procedures can result in reduced tooth decay and tooth sensitivity and may decrease the risk of gum disease by strengthening tooth enamel and gums. With good oral hygiene, and occasional touch up treatments, results can last up to a year or more.
