07 Sep Eliminate Tough Dental Stains with Professional Teeth Whitening
Unfortunately, developing permanent dental stains is inevitable. Our teeth are porous and repeated contact with stain-causing foods and drinks can take a toll on the appearance of our once pearly whites. The good news is that achieving a beaming smile is possible with professional teeth whitening. Our dentist offers professional take-home teeth whitening kits that can help you find the confidence to smile again.
How Dental Stains Develop
Dental stains develop when our teeth are exposed to stain-causing foods and beverages. Berries, wine, coffee, beets, and soda are common sources for dental stains. Using chewing tobacco, cigars, and cigarettes also permanently stain teeth.
Tooth wear and enamel loss cause dental stains, too. When our teeth lose enamel or become worn, the softer structures of teeth are exposed to the dark molecules of common drinks and foods. This exposure will cause deep discoloration over time.
Treating Dull Smiles with Professional Whitening
Nothing compares to professional teeth whitening treatments. In fact, store-bought whitening products may contribute to long-term tooth sensitivity and enamel loss. Professional treatments are the safest, most effective way to achieve lasting, noticeable results.
Our practice offers convenient take-home kits. These kits come with prescription-grade lightening solutions and custom trays. This whitening solution is gentle on teeth but tough on stubborn stains. Patients can whiten their smile on their time in the comfort of their homes.
Within a couple of weeks of consistent use, most people’s smiles become several shades brighter. Many folks whiten their smiles while they watch television or do household chores like folding laundry or cleaning dishes. The convenient nature of take-home whitening makes it easy to achieve the smile of your dreams.
A dull and yellowed smile can make us feel self-conscious. Improving your smile can have a profound effect on your self-esteem and your appearance. If you have questions about cosmetic dental treatments like professional teeth whitening, call Smile Naples to schedule a consultation with our dentist.
