Even if you take good care of your teeth, dental stains and discolorations still have a way of developing over time. From diet and medication to the normal aging process, brushing is often not enough to keep teeth looking as white and fresh as they can be. The dentists at Santa Rosa Dental Care in Santa Rosa, CA, recommend professional teeth whitening treatments for a new and improved smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening in Santa Rosa, CA
According to some studies, teeth whitening treatments can do more than just improve a dull, stained, and discolored smile. Teeth whitening treatments have been shown to make people look several years younger in many cases, to improve social and professional prospects, and to provide a boost in self esteem, confidence, and overall quality of life.
How Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments Work
While there are many products available over the counter that help to make your smile brighter, they do not deliver the same results as a professional treatment. Some products may also contain abrasive properties that can actually strip away tooth enamel and leave your teeth even more vulnerable to staining and discoloration.
The dentist on the other hand uses professional grade whitening agents that can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single visit, while also protecting your teeth and gums from harsh chemicals and damage.
If you prefer to get the same professional results at home, ask the dentist about at home whitening treatments. At home treatments deliver the same results as a single office treatment, but they are applied over the course of several weeks and whiten your teeth gradually over time.
