When some children start to get their permanent teeth, they may have more of a yellow hue than their deciduous teeth originally did. This can be from illness, certain medications like tetracycline that stains the teeth from within, or their permanent teeth may just naturally be a darker color, but why do our teeth seem to darken with age?
Our teeth can become darker from environmental factors like, eating and drinking foods that stain teeth. A few of the main culprit’s of tooth staining are blueberries, coffee, tea, and wine.
So, why does it matter? Well, most people don’t like having a dull, yellow, or a grayish smile. In fact, many people are unaware of the fact that whitening your teeth is simple, easy, long lasting and safe. If they knew that the confident boosting procedure was so quick and effective, more people would take advantage of the Premier Smiles Studio in Naples, Fl.
At Premier Smiles, they take the time to examine your teeth prior to the whitening procedure to make certain that you are a good candidate and to explain the outcome that you desire and how it will be accomplished.
Natural teeth will be lightened from the inside out, so any intrinsic staining, like that from tetracycline, will be lighter, giving the tooth a whiter appearance. Your teeth will lighten several shades, depending on how dark they are, to begin with. Any restorative dental work that you may have will not change. That is to say that, the whitening gel will not lighten or affect the original color of your crowns, bridges, resin and composite fillings, or bonding.
All whitening is not the same. Any over-the-counter toothpaste, whitening strips, or gel typically has a far less percentage of carbamide peroxide (which is the bleaching agent) than professional tooth whitening gels. Professional whitening usually has between 30-44 percent carbamide peroxide. The peroxide creates a porous surface and allows the agent to penetrate into the teeth. This infiltration allows for the intrinsic stains to be lightened. No over the counter toothpaste or gel can get your teeth as white as professional methods.
The process takes just a few minutes; your gums and soft tissue will be protected, as only your teeth will be exposed. The gel will be applied and an FDA approved LED light will help to make the process quick and more effective than any over the counter application systems.
Your teeth will be remarkably lighter, but not fake white, as teeth will only lighten to a natural tooth color. Although the results are long lasting, many clients choose to purchase maintenance products to use at home. Typically individuals will see a brighter smile for 6 to 12 months, depending on your diet and dental hygiene.
Whitening your teeth is an excellent way to boost your confidence and make you feel like you’ve had a little lift to your appearance. Whiter teeth are perceived as healthy, knowing that you take pride in your appearance will have a positive impact on you, and those around you.
