Long lasting results offset teeth whitening cost to our Asheville patients
A dull, discolored smile creates a challenge, but one that is easily handled with teamwork. Stains appear over time, so gradually that you cannot tell your smile is dulling until one day you look in the mirror and notice your teeth are not as bright as they once were. You may wonder if your teeth were always somewhat yellowish in color. Every person does have his or her own unique shade. We are not all alike in having bright white teeth. The natural discoloration that occurs over time, however, does not have to affect the attractiveness of your smile permanently. If you are unhappy with the shade of white your teeth display, professional teeth whitening is well worth the cost. Our Asheville area patients see first-hand the benefits of professional whitening rather than the use of commercial products.
The shade of teeth is determined by a number of factors, both internal and external. Most commonly, discoloration develops as tiny particles of food and beverages seep into porous enamel and settle beneath the surface. Called extrinsic stains, this discoloration will become more noticeable over time. Food sources are not the only instigating factors of tooth stains. Habits such as poor oral hygiene or the use of tobacco products can also lead to dulling. Whatever the underlying cause of stains, the result is a smile that you may find unattractive.
There are some ways to offset the effects of stain-causing substances, but teeth whitening is the only way to remove discoloration completely. By brushing teeth twice a day, or even after every meal, tiny particles are washed away rather than absorbed by the teeth. Discontinuing the use of tobacco products, as well, will decrease the speed in which discoloration can occur. For more immediate effects, however, professional teeth whitening is in order.
Although commercial teeth whitening products are accessible at a low cost, professional treatment helps our Asheville patients achieve long-lasting results. With a higher concentration of non-abrasive whitening agent, professional whitening is capable of reaching stains beneath surface enamel, resulting in the brightest white possible.
