Several factors can cause teeth to change in colour over time. If you’re hoping to make your teeth color brighter, you are not alone. Thankfully, you can improve the appearance of your teeth with whitening procedures offered in our dental office.
A person’s teeth change colour for a myriad of reasons.
Teeth whitening is the process of making your teeth colour lighter. This procedure requires the expertise of dental professionals. If you head to a salon because they offer teeth whitening for a low price, you may be disappointed in the outcome as a thorough cleaning prior to whitening is critical. Talk to your dentist about your options and make sure there are no other concerns that may affect your oral health
Your dentist would be able to determine if you are a good candidate for a teeth whitening procedure. Advertising will tell you the simplest teeth whitening option is a “whitening” toothpaste you can get from the grocery store. However, most people will find they never get much whitening power from a toothpaste.
Here are other treatments that can help make your smile brighter.
After getting a teeth whitening procedure, you might experience heightened tooth sensitivity. This should be temporary. In the unlikely event that it persists, be sure to contact your dentist.
At Rundle Dental, we make sure to discuss with patients their treatment options, along with results they can expect. We don’t overpromise. Instead, we work closely with our patients to ensure they’re happy with the final outcome of the treatment.
Note, teeth whitening procedures do not guarantee crystal white teeth, especially for those with severe stains caused by antibiotics. However, they can help make your teeth color lighter.
