What you need to know about teeth whitening treatment options
Does your smile look dull, yellow and lifeless? You can bring back a sparkling, celebrity-white smile and give your smile new life. The answer is a teeth whitening treatment! Dr. Michael Tisdelle in Charlottesville, Virginia wants you to know all about the state-of-the-art options available to whiten your teeth, jazz up your smile and give it new life.
Your teeth can become dull and discolored for many reasons, and the main reason is the normal aging process your body and your teeth undergo. Your tooth enamel thins as you age, allowing you and others to see through to the layer underneath, called dentin. Dentin is naturally yellow and darkens as you age. The result is your teeth will look dark yellow to you and everyone else.
Your teeth can also pick up stain from drinking coffee, tea and red wine, or eating foods with dark pigment like blueberries. If you are a smoker, you know how much smoking can stain your teeth!
Over-the-counter whitening treatments can help whiten your teeth, but the effects usually aren’t nearly as dramatic as professional whitening treatments., and the effect might not last very long. Dr. Tisdelle wants you to know about the whitening treatments available at his office. You can choose from:
Whitening kits- which you can take home; these include custom-made trays which you fill with the professional whitening gel supplied with your kit. You can wear these gel-filled trays for short periods of time in the comfort and privacy of your home.
In-office whitening treatments-professional whitening gel is applied to your teeth and enhanced with a high-tech light system. Your teeth can whiten up to 8 shades and the process takes only an hour. It’s the perfect choice if you want whiter teeth in a short amount of time.
Whether you choose the quick in-office whitening treatment or the convenient at-home whitening kit, Dr. Michael Tisdelle is committed to providing the best care available before, during and after your whitening treatment.
