Brighten Your Smile with Professional Teeth Whitening
Whether you have noticed your smile starting to look dingier than it used to, or if you have never been satisfied with the shade of your teeth, you don’t have to live with a dark or yellow smile anymore. ACE Dental offers professional teeth whitening in Belton, Taylor, Harker Heights, Temple, Waco, and Killeen.
What Causes Tooth Enamel to Stain
In their natural state, the color of the teeth should match the whites of your eyes. But given repeated exposure to dark foods and beverages as well as other lifestyle factors, like tobacco and less-than-perfect dental hygiene, your smile gradually loses its luster.
Of course, genetics also play a significant role in the shade of your teeth. Some people are just born with whiter smiles than others.
To bring back the dazzling white of your youth, or to achieve the bright smile you always wanted but have never enjoyed, professional teeth whitening in Taylor comes to the rescue.
Why Choose In-Office Teeth Whitening?
There is no shortage of whitening options available at the grocery store or pharmacy. Whitestrips and bleaching toothpastes promise fast results for a small investment.
Unfortunately, one-size-fits-all treatments rarely fit like they should, and may expose your gums and other sensitive tissues to the powerful bleaching gel. This exposure puts your mouth at risk of burns.
We have also observed the risk of overuse with over-the-counter treatments. When people are unsatisfied with their results after the treatment is complete, they may simply begin bleaching again. Overuse of teeth whitening solutions wears away tooth enamel, putting you at an increased risk of tooth sensitivity and decay.
Professional-grade teeth whitening is much stronger than what you can buy over the counter, for maximum results. It is also customized to your unique oral anatomy, guaranteeing that the bleaching gel only comes into contact with your tooth enamel. Your dentist can also make adjustments for factors like tooth sensitivity.
For the safest, most effective bleaching, professional teeth whitening is the superior choice.
Maintaining Your White Smile
Once your teeth whitening treatment is complete, you will want to maximize your investment by keeping your teeth whiter for longer. Enjoy your results for years to come by limiting the factors that caused your smile to darken initially -- like frequent consumption of black coffee, red wine, and dark chocolate. Tobacco use and poor dental hygiene are significant factors causing dark, dingy teeth.
Even if you can't completely give up your morning cup of joe or evening indulgence, there are some tricks you can keep in mind to naturally reduce teeth staining. Crunch on crusty bread along with your favorite red wine, or snack on a piece of cheese. Bread can scrub away stains naturally, and calcium-rich cheese coats the teeth in a protective layer that blocks staining agents.
