All over the globe, the cosmetic dental treatment most requested is teeth whitening. One reason so many people request this procedure is because it is the one simple dental treatment that can shave years off your appearance. Brighter, whiter teeth can actually make you look younger and more vibrant. When your teeth are darker with stains and dingy, you tend to look older than your chronological age.
Mint Dental offers professional teeth whitening that can make your teeth look up to eight shades lighter in just one visit. The whitening process we provide whitens teeth safely and effectively. It eliminates the stains caused by foods and beverages and leaves your teeth looking completely different.
The food you eat and the beverages you consume can stain your teeth over time. No doubt you have noticed the stains that blueberries can cause on clothing and teeth. Brushing your teeth regularly will remove some of the staining, but over time, those berry stains, along with those of coffee, tea, red wine, other food and even some spices, will cause your teeth to get darker and dingier.
This process is very gradual, and you may not notice it. If you put a piece of white or ivory paper next to your teeth, you can see how dull and dark they may be now. When you see the stains on the inside of your coffee or tea cup that do not get washed away, you can be fairly certain that your teeth are stained as well.
Smoking and chewing tobacco are not good for your health, and they definitely are not good for your teeth. Tobacco use is one of the worst culprits in staining teeth. Fortunately, professional whitening can make a huge difference.
Professional Whitening vs Over-the-Counter-Kits
There are a wide variety of commercial whitening kits available at your local store, and many of them do an adequate job of whitening teeth. Why then should you choose to have your teeth professionally whitened by Dr. Liles? One of the most important reasons for having your teeth whitened by a professional is safety. Some OTC whitening kits can do damage to the enamel of your teeth. Your dentist has had training and knows how to administer and monitor the whitening process so it is safe and effective.
At Mint Dental we use Opalescence™ Boost™ to whiten teeth. This product is a chemically activated whitener that provides the highest quality of professional whitening available. Treatments last for 20 minutes, and after two treatments, you can see dramatic differences. Opalescence Boost is gluten-free so patients with gluten allergies or concerns can feel comfortable about having their teeth whitened.
If your teeth look dull and dingy, contact Mint Dental, and schedule your appointment to have your teeth professionally whitened safely and efficiently.
