Do you have big things on the horizon and you need to look your best? Maybe you’re about to walk down the aisle with the person of your dreams? Are you finally being considered for that promotion after years of hard work? Maybe you have an interview for the job you’ve always wanted coming up? But if your pearly whites aren’t so pearly or white anymore, you may be self-conscious. If that’s the case, teeth whitening treatment may be just what the dentist ordered to help you transform your smile and let your smile shine!
Even if you’ve regularly cared for your teeth, natural discoloration of your teeth will still occur over time. This natural process can also be sped along by other factors such as smoking or chewing tobacco or daily consumption of coffee, tea, cola or red wine. Even the use of certain prescription medications can be a contributing factor.
Following a regimen of brushing and flossing as recommended by dentists can slow this process down and help your smile stay brighter and healthier longer. However, it cannot reverse this discoloration. The whitening strips and specialty toothpaste sold over the counter at your local drug store or big box store can help reverse some of the damage but the results are limited.
