It goes without saying that your smile’s health is one of the most important considerations to make when pursuing dental treatment. After all, a beautiful grin is nothing without a healthy foundation, and you cannot maintain a healthy foundation without practicing consistent preventive care, both at home and in the office. Still, this does not mean that cosmetic concerns should receive a seat permanently on the back burner, and there is value to various cosmetic dental services. In today’s blog, your Vista, CA dentist discusses the many benefits of cosmetic dental treatment, including teeth whitening.
Combatting Years of Stains
Whether you are aware of it or not, your smile is constantly sitting on the defensive against various oral health threats. What’s more? These threats also cause issues from a cosmetic perspective as well, and it can be difficult to fend them all off.
Indeed, stains can occur for a variety of reasons, such as through your diet. For example, coffees and teas contain pigments that darken your smile’s hue. Additionally, certain foods such as berries can lead to stain development as well. Finally, age in and of itself is a contributing factor to stain development and a grin losing its shine. To help address these issues, a popular treatment option to consider may include professional teeth whitening.
Cosmetic dentistry is an umbrella term given to various procedures that aim to address surface-level blemishes in a simple, non-invasive manner. By far stains are the most common dental blemish we experience, and as such, in-office whitening exists to help enhance the appearance of your teeth. For more information about this process and what your options for treatment may look like, give our team a call today.
Brightening Your Overall Hue
When you attend your dental whitening visit, we will begin by applying a strong but safe bleaching gel to the surfaces of your teeth. After all of the gel has been applied, we will utilize a special light to activate the material, which then begins to foam and break apart difficult stains.
In terms of care, you do not have to worry about any invasive procedures, as dental whitening is a topical one with zero invasion. Further, it only requires one visit to complete, which makes it convenient as well.
Providing a Lifelike Finish
Once your treatment is complete, it may take a couple of days to fully experience the enhancement in brightness. What’s more? You will begin to notice a difference of up to several shades, as well as a consistent and lifelike finish. Don’t waste time hiding your smile when you could be enjoying it!
