Spring—a time for renewal, growth and—well—cleaning. This is just the perfect time to spruce up the yard and clean out the garage. While you’re at it, why not spruce up your smile, too? White teeth just look cleaner, fresher and whole lot more appealing. At West End Dental Group, we offer teeth whitening in Beaumont so you can have a smile that boosts your appearance and your self-confidence.
Not So White Teeth
Look at any baby or young child and you’ll know how white your teeth used to be. Unfortunately, the aging process can take a toll on your smile just as it does the rest of the body. Your teeth are genetically coded to be slightly yellow, gray or brown and that tends to become more dominant as you grow older.
But the main reason teeth become noticeably less white is the because of the foods and beverages most people ingest everyday. That morning cup of coffee or tea, that slice of tomato at lunch or that bowl of chocolate ice cream before bed all have the potential to stain your teeth. Eventually, these stains penetrate below the enamel surface of teeth so your toothbrush and whitening toothpaste cannot get rid of them.
Other things that can contribute to stained and discolored teeth include:
- Tooth injury that darkens the interior of a tooth
- Micro-cracks that hide food particles and debris
- Teeth grinding and clenching that darken the biting surfaces of teeth
- The antibiotic tetracycline, which can give teeth a gray cast
- Certain forms of chemotherapy and radiation for cancer treatment
Enjoy a White Smile
When you come to West End Dental Group, the dentist in Beaumont will first examine your teeth to ensure that there aren’t any restorative concerns that should be taken care of prior to whitening your teeth. Once these are taken care of, we’ll take an impression of your upper and lower teeth in order to create custom-fitted mouth trays. You’ll take these home along with the professional grade bleaching formula we provide. All you have to do is fill the trays with the whitening gel and wear them for about 30 minutes a day for 14 consecutive days.
You’ll notice a change in the color of your teeth after only a few applications. However, the most dramatic results will be evident at the conclusion of your treatment.
