Different Options for Getting a Whiter Smile

Different Options for Getting a Whiter SmileSeveral recent studies have firmly linked our oral health to our overall physical health. It’s no wonder then that we humans find a bright, white smile to be so attractive and indicative of good health. If your teeth are stained due to staining, aging, or even certain medications or other lifestyle factors, you can regain a whiter, brighter smile with the help of our Northridge cosmetic dentist.

Over-the-counter tooth whitening is a lower cost option many people try in their quest for whiter teeth, but these kits can be time consuming or messy. Professional bleaching procedures are highly effective on teeth that are typically stained from food, wine, coffee, or tobacco use. ZOOM! whitening is a name brand procedure that can whiten teeth up to eight shades in about an hour by using applying a hydrogen peroxide gel followed by a special light that helps the gel penetrate deeply to maximize effectiveness.

Teeth stained due to certain medications may not be able to be whitened through typical office procedures. However, a white smile is still entirely possible through dental veneers. Dental veneers are a thin shell that is applied directly to the surface of teeth. Veneers can result in a whiter, more even-looking smile permanently.

If you are interested in learning more about tooth whitening, our Northridge dentist can explain the choices available and help you decide which may be best for your situation and your oral health. To maintain your new, whiter smile, it’s important that you brush at least twice daily, floss daily, and avoid staining foods, beverages, and habits like smoking.
