You brush and floss your teeth every day, but after spending a few extra moments in the mirror this morning, you notice that your teeth have definitely gotten darker and taken on a more yellow hue. What is causing this? More importantly, what can you do to restore your smile’s natural shine? Below, we discuss the common causes of dental stains and how Galleria Dentistry can help you get rid of them while you sit and relax at home.
Everything from the food and beverages we enjoy every day to natural aging and genetics can affect the color of the teeth over time. Items like coffee, tea, and wine have strong pigments that can cling to the teeth and leave stains, and for some, their teeth are just naturally less than white.
While there are a seemingly endless amount of whitening products available on store shelves today, the truth of the matter is that the vast majority of them are simply too week to deliver the dramatic results patients desire. Whitening toothpaste can’t stay on the teeth long enough to really break up stains, and any number of gels and strips have very low concentrations of the ingredient actually used to whiten teeth: hydrogen or carbamide peroxide.
However, at Galleria Dentistry, we can provide products that are much stronger than anything you can buy on your own…many times stronger! If you’re interested in making your teeth whiter, then we have the solution for you.
If you decide to whiten your teeth with us, we can give you your own custom-made take home kit. It will consist of specially designed mouth trays formulated to comfortably fit over your teeth and a powerful bleaching gel. You’ll simply need to use the kit as directed. Patients are monitored weekly to track progress and can notice a difference after just one session! With our help and guidance our goal is to give you a long lasting smile you can be proud of.
Our whitening products will not only give you the Hollywood-style glow you’re looking for, but it will also help lessen one of the most common side effects of whitening: teeth sensitivity. Under our supervision, we’ll make sure your smile stays healthy while it becomes more beautiful. You certainly can’t find that at the store!
