These days, it seems as if everyone is interested in teeth whitening. When you go to the supermarket or the drug store, you will find shelves filled with toothpastes, mouthwashes, and other products that are designed to brighten your teeth. But you have to be careful, because some of them also contain abrasive ingredients that can damage your precious tooth enamel. At Implant and Cosmetic Dental Care, PLLC, we can give you the benefits of our teeth whitening in Maspeth either here in our office or in a convenient take-home version. You can get a whiter and more attractive smile, effectively, quickly, and above all, safely.
There are many things that can cause your teeth to become discolored or stained. Foods and beverages are common reasons, including tea, coffee, red wine, cola, berries, soy sauce, and curry. Tobacco use, either smokeless or smoking, is also a major culprit. Some prescription drugs, notably tetracycline, are also known to cause a change to your tooth color. And regardless of your personal habits or the medicines you take, everyone deals with the slow and natural erosion of tooth enamel with age. As you get older, your enamel wears away, revealing the dentin beneath, which is simply not as white.
The outcomes from our take-home option are outstanding, and you will notice a difference in just a few days. Exactly how many sessions it will take varies based on two factors: how discolored your teeth are at the start of our teeth whitening in Maspeth, and how white you want them to be. But rest assured that even if your teeth have become yellowed or brown, you will still be able to experience a much brighter smile. It’s not a forever solution, but depending on your personal habits, you can expect the results to last a year or longer.
