Your smile is the first thing people see when they encounter you, so when your teeth are pearly white, it makes quite the impression. Dull, yellow, or stained teeth may be common, but they are not nearly as attractive as a dazzling white smile.
Have you always wanted a smile you’re proud to show off? Here at Smile Hilliard, we offer teeth whitening that is professional and polished. With two whitening options to choose from – both in-office and take-home, you can select the method that works for you and see remarkable results with either choice. It won’t be long before you have a smile that’s star-worthy. Just like your favorite celebs, your smile will finally be camera-ready.
Am I A Good Candidate For Teeth Whitening?
Most patients are decent candidates for teeth whitening. If your teeth are dull or stained, have lost their luster, or are uneven in hue, teeth whitening can provide an impressive improvement in their appearance, and who doesn’t want that?
Of course, every patient is different, and if you have major teeth sensitivity issues, advanced gum disease, or your teeth are not super white due to unusual/medical circumstances, teeth whitening may not be doable or in your best interest. The dentist will review these matters with you during your consultation to determine if you’re in the clear for teeth whitening or if you need to explore alternative solutions. Safety comes first, as always.
Otherwise, you are likely a good candidate for teeth whitening, and you can expect your teeth to look multiple shades whiter after our whitening process.
What Causes My Teeth To Lose Their Whiteness?
There are a number of factors that cause teeth to become less white. Age is one factor. It’s inevitable – as we get older, our teeth become naturally duller. It’s part of life, but there is a way to reverse the hands of time…at least when it comes to our teeth.
What we eat and drink also play a role. Try to avoid foods and drinks that can stain teeth. These include red wine, cola, coffee, tea, chocolate, red sauces, and dark berries. Tobacco use is unhealthy for a variety of reasons, and it can also stain teeth. Certain medications can cause discoloration, as can diseases as well as dental injury.
Brushing regularly can ward off/slow down permanent staining, but over time, even the most diligent brusher is susceptible to staining. Teeth whitening can reverse this issue, resulting in a stellar smile that looks like new. After the whitening process is complete, keep the look lovely by avoiding the above-mentioned foods and drinks, as well as tobacco use, to maintain the effects. Eventually, you may need to re-whiten, and once again, your teeth will become shades whiter another time around.
What Type Of In-Office Whitening Do You Offer At Smile Hilliard?
We are pleased to offer our patients the “magic” of Boost Whitening. This teeth whitening option is fast, safe, and even more effective than Zoom®. No goggles are required since there is no UV light administered. Only a few applications are necessary, and the results are long-lasting. The process is painless, and you will be thrilled with the eye-catching outcome. We recommend this teeth whitening option, as over-the-counter alternatives you can buy at the drug store or online just can’t match up. It is effective and the results are immediate!
Do You Offer An In-Home Teeth Whitening Solution?
