Teeth Whitening Procedures With Your Lindale Dentist
Chances are you have seen many teeth whitening options. There are many available in your big box stores. However, they are not nearly as effective as the professional teeth whitening options available with your Lindale dental office.
We utilize a much higher dosage of the active whitening ingredient, peroxide than can be offered in the over-the-counter options due to peroxide’s strong effect. If peroxide is used in high levels it can cause burning on the soft tissue of your gums, so it needs to be utilized under your dentist’s care.
We offer either an in-office tooth whitening treatment if you prefer or a take-home treatment that you can do at your convenience. in-office treatments do not take long, and you can be in and out of the office within one hour. At-home kits tend to be less expensive, and are done more often than in-office treatments, which usually will take one to two weeks. However, they tend to use less peroxide than in the office.
You will end up with a smile that you will be happy to show up all summer long. Your smile will be radiant and bright after a professional teeth whitening treatment at your local Lindale dentist.
Home Tips For a Bright Smile
Teeth whitening is a great option for brightening your smile this summer, but there are some great ways to naturally keep your smile bright. Not only will these tips keep your smiles bright, but they will also keep your dental health in check as well.
To keep plaque and staining off of your teeth this summer, be sure to keep up with your routine of brushing twice a day. This accompanied with flossing twice a day will help prevent staining. This not only helps with whitening but is a great dental health tip as well.
If you are a smoker, now is the stop to stop! Smoking is not only bad for your overall health but it can badly stain your teeth. It leaves distinct yellow tint on your teeth. Those who smoke are also more likely to develop gum disease, tooth loss, and even oral cancer. Staying away from cigarettes can keep your smile bright and your health looking bright as well.
Your diet can also greatly affect your bright smile as well. Certain foods can actually make your teeth whiter. Fibrous fruits and vegetables like carrots and apples can actually scrub the surface of your teeth. And on the opposite end, drinks such as coffee can stain your teeth. So, paying attention to the foods and beverages you consume plays a big part in the brightness of your smile.
