Whiter Teeth in One Visit!
Summer brings sunshine, beach days, photos, and memories. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your smile, especially when it comes to pictures, now’s the time to consider a smile makeover!
You can easily add sparkle to your smile — and boost your self-confidence too — with teeth whitening at a cosmetic dentist near you. It’s an easy and comfortable process and more effective and longer-lasting than over-the-counter whitening products.
If you have worrisome stains or discoloration on your teeth, here’s how we can you can get a dazzling summertime smile!
First, it’s important to understand why teeth become discolored in the first place. Age, genetics, and lifestyle factors can all contribute to discoloration. Smoking, beverages like coffee or tea, and certain medications can all contribute.
Professional teeth whitening is one service provided by cosmetic dentists, who can also suggest lifestyle changes to keep those pearly teeth whiter, and for longer.
What About DIY Teeth Whitening?
Over-the-counter products may seem like a good idea, but these quick-fix solutions can be harmful. Many of these treatments contain higher levels of bleaching elements than professional products, making them more likely to damage your enamel or cause gum sensitivity. Plus, results can vary and may lead to uneven whitening.
Teeth whitening in our San Mateo cosmetic dental office is safe and effective. Our clinically proven system, called Zoom, uses a whitening gel and blue light technology to help you achieve up to 14 shades lighter in just one hour.
Once you’ve achieved your desired level of whiteness, there are a few tips to help you maintain it. Avoiding certain foods and beverages that can stain your teeth is key, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and soft drinks, and it’s always important to brush and floss regularly to maintain good oral health.
Your dentist can also recommend products like special toothpaste or rinses that might help keep your teeth looking white and bright.
A bright, confident smile does wonders, and with proper care and maintenance, a brighter smile is well worth a visit to our cosmetic dentist in San Mateo. So go ahead and flash those pearly whites this summer!
