How Teeth Whitening Can Improve your Smile
You remember how nice it was to have a youthful, white smile. When you smiled at people, they smiled back. Now, you can regain your smile with a teeth whitening treatment. Professional teeth whitening has become state-of-the-art. Treatments are easy, effective, and quick. You can remove years of stains and discolorations with new whitening treatments. Dr. Joel E. Johnson in Columbia, South Carolina wants to share some of the benefits of modern teeth whitening with you.
Many foods and beverages can stain your teeth including berries, coffee and red wine. Let’s not forget tobacco use, which can cause heavy, thick black stains. Many stains can’t be removed by brushing, even with whitening toothpaste. In fact, most over-the-counter whitening products have little benefit, and the results usually don’t last as long as you would like.
Dr. Johnson wants you to know the main reason why your teeth aren’t as white as they once were. It’s because of normal aging. Aging affects your body and especially your teeth. As the years go by, your enamel becomes thinner and more transparent. You and everyone else can now see through to the layer underneath, called dentin. Dentin is yellow and turns a darker yellow as you age. Your entire smile looks now looks dull, yellow and dark.
If your smile looks old and dull, it’s time to try a professional whitening treatment. Dr. Johnson offers effective teeth whitening options designed to fit with your needs and busy schedule. You can choose from:
- Opalescence Go or prefilled disposable trays. This allows you to wear them for 15 minutes to one hour each day. These are very convenient for the busy individual who does not have time for at-home whitening kits.
- Whitening for life. This is the best value for any patient. If you decide on this program, we will take impressions during your routine teeth cleaning. Each visit, you will be given more bleach for the rest of your life as long as you keep up with your appointments . If you miss appointments, the deal will expire.
- At-home whitening treatment kits are for those who want a convenient treatment you can use in the privacy of your home whenever you wish; the whitening kit includes a custom whitening tray made by Dr. Johnson and prescription strength bleaching gel.
Whichever method you choose, professional whitening can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter with results that can last 5 years!
