Time for Professional Teeth Whitening?
You might have a full set of healthy teeth—each of them fully intact and with no obvious damage or decay—and yet you feel the need to hide your smile. Discolored, darkened, and yellow teeth can significantly harm your self-esteem and your confidence. If you’ve had enough of smiling with your mouth closed and avoiding having your picture taken, it may be time for professional teeth whitening at Sapphire Family Dentistry. Whiter teeth can give you an instant self-confidence boost and the more carefree life you’ve been wanting. See how we can put an end to your yellow teeth in Richmond, TX.
How to Get Optimal Results
While you have many teeth whitening options at your local pharmacy or grocery store, those products rarely if ever provide the same whitening power that professional-grade whitening treatments can. The results for retail products don’t usually last as long as professional treatments and can possibly even harm your teeth and make them become painfully sensitive. In addition, you may also notice uneven whitening across your teeth. Our professional teeth whitening options at Sapphire Family Dentistry can offer you:
Types of Treatment for Yellow Teeth
Professional teeth whitening treatment comes in two forms: in-office treatments and at-home treatment kits. With in-office treatment you generally have a series of whitening sessions during recurring visits. Some solutions involve a combination of in-office care provided by dental professionals and at-home treatments to maintain the bright shade you like. Still others are at-home only but are available exclusively through a visit to your cosmetic dentist in Richmond, TX. Many options involve the application and reapplication of hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gels. You can count on us to recommend the most effective and convenient option for your specific case. After treatment, your teeth will be up to several shades whiter. We can even help you choose a shade that complements your skin tone or meets any personal preferences you may have. We’re able to customize the whitening process to your unique specifications.
How to Keep Your Teeth White
Whether you’ve already undergone professional teeth whitening or wish to avoid it, there are some steps you can take to keep your teeth shining brightly. If you drink coffee, red wine, or soft drinks, try enjoying them in moderation. Also, avoid tobacco, which can not only cause yellow teeth but contributes to various cancers and gum disease. While you can safely drink staining beverages in moderation, any amount of tobacco use is bad for your teeth and your overall health. And of course, brush and floss your teeth as recommended by your dentist in Richmond, TX. Each of these choices can help your smile shine for the long-term!
