When you have a radiant, healthy smile, your appearance conveys a subconscious message of vitality, warmth, and happiness. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, almost 100 percent of the adult population views smiles as essential personal assets. Most feel that a great smile makes you more appealing to members of the opposite sex. Many also believe that an unattractive or unhealthy smile can hurt your chances of professional success. Tooth discoloration may cause you to avoid smiling altogether. Fortunately, improving your smile through teeth whitening treatments is easy and affordable.

Why Do Teeth Become Discolored?

Your baby teeth were probably whiter than your adult teeth. As you age, your teeth become darker or yellower and may accumulate stains. This process may be why brighter, whiter teeth make people seem younger. The primary causes of external tooth discoloration are genetics, certain foods, tobacco use, and normal aging. Foods associated with tooth yellowing include tea, coffee, carrots, and oranges. Internal tooth discoloration may be caused by exposure to high levels of fluoride, tetracycline use, developmental disorders, root canals, tooth decay, dental restorations, and injuries.

Teeth Bleaching Whitening Techniques

The two most common ways to whiten your teeth are through over-the-counter whitening products and professional, in-office whitening or bleaching treatments. Do-it-yourself treatment kits are available without a prescription in retail stores. These include teeth whitening strips, paint-on gel formulas, and whitening oral care products like toothpastes or gums. They’re typically safe, but it’s best to consult your dentist or hygienist before use. Professional teeth whitening procedures are performed in a dental office and involve stronger and more effective whitening agents. They can often transform the look of your smile in one visit. The effects of an in-office treatment may last for a year or longer with maintenance.

Why Professional Teeth Whitening is Best

When you choose an in-office treatment, you enjoy several advantages. Professional supervision makes the teeth whitening process safer and more effective. Your dentist can ensure that your mouth trays are fitted properly to avoid leaking. If you suffer from tooth sensitivity as a result of whitening agents, your dentist is best equipped to relieve your symptoms, and prevent worsening sensitivity without discontinuing treatment. Talk to your dentist about teeth whitening options today, and give your smile new life.
