If you can’t help but feel that your smile appears dull or discolored, particularly when you compare your current appearance to older pictures, it may be time to address teeth stains. Even with consistent brushing and flossing, it can be difficult to stop stains from building up on our teeth over time. As they accumulate, your smile can lose its brightness, and you can become self-conscious about the way you look. At our Rochester, MN dental office, we provide a teeth whitening treatment that combines in-office and at-home care to deliver significant cosmetic improvements. In a short period of time, we can help you show off a dramatic change to the way you look!
Why Is It So Hard To Avoid Teeth Stains?
If you are trying to avoid products that might leave stains in your teeth, you can find yourself giving up some popular foods and beverages. Coffee, soft drinks, tea, and other colored beverages can leave stains behind. Many dark and color-rich foods can also be trouble for your appearance. While you can preserve your enamel color with good brushing habits, stains can still steadily gather, and make a change to how you look.
Fighting Significant Stains With A Professional Whitening Procedure
At our practice, we recommend a whitening procedure that relies on treatments in our office, as well as a whitening kit that you take home and use on your own. By combining these treatments, it is possible for you to see a noticeable change – many people have seen their teeth become up to sixteen shades brighter than they were when they scheduled their procedure! Using the take-home whitening kit to “touch up” your smile after your procedure is completed can help you sustain your improvements, meaning you can hold onto your brighter smile long after your treatment takes place.
Dealing With Other Forms Of Dental Discoloration
One thing to consider before starting cosmetic dental treatment is the fact that some forms of dental discoloration are not caused by teeth stains. Your teeth may appear dull because enamel erosion is affecting their brightness, or because of trauma to a tooth. After taking certain medications, your teeth may develop blemishes. If you are concerned about these issues, it is possible to correct your smile color with porcelain veneers. Veneers also make teeth look better by hiding wear and tear, covering alignment problems, and improving their overall shape.
