Teeth Whitening/Dental Bleaching
A white smile can be a strong indicator. Those with white teeth can be viewed as more attractive, seem healthier and happier and may have more self confidence. With so many teeth whitening options out there, some individuals may choose a home remedy. However, there are benefits to consulting with your dentist about your whitening options.
Reasons for Treatment
Over time your teeth lose their natural luster. This is partially due to aging, but there are also a few additional factors that can be considered:
- Consumption of Tooth-Staining Beverages and Foods
- Plaque Accumulation
- Some Prescription Medications
- Dental Trauma
- Over Fluoridation
These and other factors can cause tooth stains, and in some cases decay. Maintaining a proper oral health routine, including brushing twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash, can help to renew and protect your enamel, kill bacteria and naturally brighten your teeth. However, for a bright white smile, some additional whitening efforts can be helpful. Granted, for more serious cases there are options such as porcelain veneers and crowns; however, for less severe cases, a simple whitening treatment can suffice.
At its essence, teeth whitening is a process that involves bleaching the teeth. There are many at home options, including strips, toothpaste and mouthwash. However, many of those treatments take weeks, sometimes even months, to produce full effects and they are not authorized by the health authorities. However, a dental professional is able to offer a few safe whitening methods in conjunction with your oral health goals, to get you the smile you desire.
