Tooth Whitening has improved both its underlying science and application over the past few decades, leading to better procedures for people who are interested today. As a result, Teeth Whitening is comfortable, safe, effective, and quick, making it a very popular cosmetic dentistry option.

Why Whiten?

Natural teeth are not purely white. They contain dentin, a yellowish hard tissue whose color peeks through the translucent, outermost layer, which is enamel. It’s only natural, therefore, for people to have slightly yellowish teeth. Regarding aesthetics, however, yellow teeth look a lot less appealing and may suggest that you have poor oral hygiene.

Finger Lakes Family Dental can save you from these troubles. Our teeth whitening treatment improves the appearance of your teeth, making them appear whiter by a shade or more.

Moreover, whitened teeth can make a crooked smile look better, and hide other abnormalities that would otherwise stick out. The result is that you have the confidence to fully smile with white teeth, allowing your personality to shine through.

Teeth Discoloration is Preventable

Besides dentin, yellowing teeth can be due to avoidable factors, like certain food choices and habits.

Coffee, wine, and tea contain tannins, organic substances found in plants that can stain teeth. Apples, blueberries, and citric fruits contain acids that lead to teeth discoloration, while spices like curry and heavy sauces like tomato sauce can darken teeth.

You don’t have to avoid these food items; simply brush your teeth properly after drinking or eating. Avoid smoking, too. They don’t only stain your teeth but also increase your risk for other oral health problems.

If you’ve spent years smoking or consuming any of the food and drinks listed above, you might want to have an assessment for teeth discoloration. Contact us, and we’ll recommend a tooth whitening treatment. Soon, you’ll lose your habit of covering your mouth when you smile or laugh.
