If you’re tired of having yellow, stained teeth, you are not alone. Teeth whitening restores natural tooth color and bleaching whitens beyond the natural color. There are many methods available, such as brushing, bleaching strips, bleaching pen, bleaching gel, and laser bleaching. Teeth whitening has become the most requested procedure in cosmetic dentistry today. More than 100 million Americans whiten their teeth one way or another.
So if you brush, floss and visit your dentist regularly then why are your teeth still discolored? This happens because the outer layers of your teeth get stained over the years by consumption of beverages with caffeine, soda, wine and smoking.
When these outside sources of staining are left to sit on the teeth all day until your next brushing, the dentin on your teeth becomes yellowish or darkened. The best way to help your stained discolored teeth is with one of the easiest cosmetic dentistry procedures, professional tooth whitening.
Contributing factors to yellowing, stained teeth:
Simple rules to live by to try and stop the yellowing process:
The most popular and convenient method is with the Zoom whitening technique. This procedure is done in our office in about an hour. Our trained clinicians first place a protective barrier on the cheeks and gums. The Zoom whitening gel is then applied to the teeth. This gel is used with the Zoom light which together gently penetrates the surface of the teeth to break up stains and discolorations. During this time you can relax, watch a dvd or listen to music. The gel is applied for three 15 minute sessions for a total of 45 minutes to 1 hour. You then leave with your whiter, brighter smile.
One of the best ways to whiten your teeth is to visit your dentist for professional teeth whitening. Contact Dr. Gerald Middleton and make an appointment to get that beautiful smile you have always dreamed of at (951) 688-3442 or visit our website.
