It goes without saying that taking care of your smile is a lifelong process, and just because you take a vacation does not mean your smile should. Indeed, you face so many possible threats to your grin’s integrity that it can be difficult to stay ahead of the curve at times. Fortunately, that is where dentistry and custom treatment comes in to help. In today’s blog, your North Hollywood, CA dentist discusses the importance of maintaining a youthful smile that you love, and how cosmetic teeth-whitening can address surface-level concerns.
A Lifetime of Blemishes
In an ideal world, we would be able to brush our teeth and live care-free from the threats of infection, decay, and much more. Unfortunately, this is far from the reality we live in. As a matter of fact, your grin comes into contact with a myriad of factors throughout the course of your life, and many influence your smile in a negative way as opposed to a positive one.
One example of this phenomenon includes the way certain foods and beverages impact your grin. You might be aware that sugar essentially catalyzes the decay process, but did you know that many of the foods and beverages we consume also contain pigments that stain your structures? Indeed, substances such as coffee, tea, and even berries all can contribute to stains in your grin. What’s more? Without proper care, these stains can become deep-set and require additional treatment such as teeth-whitening to address. Reach out to our team today to learn about the ways cosmetic dentistry can address a number of blemishes within your grin, and how our team can help.
Removing Difficult Stains
Whether you are aware of it or not, losing your smile’s shine is a natural occurrence that accompanies aging. Indeed, so many years of wear and tear contribute to a lackluster grin, and history of tobacco use, consumption of alcohol, and more can contribute to difficult stains. Because of this, most people could benefit from teeth-whitening at least once in their adult lives.
When you come in for your cosmetic treatment, our team will start by applying a strong but safe bleaching gel to the surfaces of your teeth. From there, we will activate the material using a special light, and the gel will begin breaking up and lifting away stains from your smile.
Enhancing Your Shine
Aside from removing difficult stains, one of the many benefits that accompany teeth-whitening is that your smile will become brighter. Indeed, once your treatment is complete, you will begin to notice a change of up to several shades lighter!
