REMOVING STAINS FOR WHITER TEETH
Enjoying sodas, coffee, or tea throughout your day may give you energy, but it’s not helping your teeth. Years of stains from dark-colored foods and drinks make your smile look yellow or dull. Even if you brush and floss twice a day, it still may not be enough to give you the stunning smile you want. Here are a few options both store-bought and professional to help you get a whiter smile that can light up Charlotte, NC.
START WITH BRUSHING
Simply brushing your teeth, flossing, and using a dental rinse is a smart place to start. Put a travel-size toothbrush and toothpaste in your purse or briefcase to have at work or school. Any time you use the restroom or take a coffee break, give your teeth a quick refresh. You’ll be improving your oral hygiene in addition to whitening your teeth.
If you would like to try store-bought products to make your smile whiter, you might see minor improvements by simply brushing with over-the-counter whitening products. At many retailers and pharmacies in Charlotte, NC, you can purchase any brand of whitening products to try at home, such as activated charcoal or a tooth whitening toothpaste. Brush your teeth with these products per the directions provided.
WHAT’S THE CATCH?
You need to be aware that store-bought products are not going to give you the same results as teeth whitening treatments performed by a dental professional. Store-bought products have limited strength, so if you have any restorations (bridges, crowns, inlays, or onlays), your smile will be visibly uneven. Plus, the use of these products frequently can make your gums feel tender and cause tooth sensitivity. Ask your dentist if they recommend store-bought whitening treatments for you.
IN-OFFICE WHITENING OPTIONS
At your dentist’s office, your exam and cleaning can not only help the health of your teeth, but they can also improve your smile. Eliminating the build-up from your teeth is an excellent way to make your smile brighter. If you want more dramatic results, talk to your dentist about cosmetic teeth whitening treatments. Your dentist may offer laser teeth whitening, custom home whitening kits, and veneers.
MAKE YOUR SMILE BRIGHTER
If you’re tired of minimal results or tooth sensitivity caused by over-the-counter teeth whitening products, schedule a consultation with your dentist to learn about professional teeth whitening options. DentalWorks in Charlotte, NC offers home and in-office whitening treatments, as well as veneers. All of these options will be customized to achieve your needs and goals, so you get impressive results. You can ask about our professional whitening options at your next visit or call to schedule a consultation to get closer to a smile that’s confidently bright.
