As we grow older our teeth, unfortunately, lose their luster. Teeth can get dull and yellow in younger people, too. At Cary Family Dental, professional teeth whitening can help turn back the clock.
To protect your teeth from staining, it is vital to brush after meals in order to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it’s better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your teeth’s enamel.
Over-the-counter products like whitening strips, mouthwashes, and toothpastes can lighten stains somewhat. But for a truly sparkling smile, professional-strength whitening is your best solution.
At Cary Family Dental we offer KoR teeth whitening. In-office whitening takes about an hour, and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. There is also a take-home kit that can produce remarkable results over time, usually a couple of weeks.
One caveat: If you have existing dental work such as porcelain crowns, dental bonding, or veneers, the whitening process is trickier, but not impossible. Teeth whitening will not lighten the stains on restorations, and your whitened natural teeth may make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Cary Family Dental, we can upgrade your dull restorations.
