Teeth Whitening Carrollton Residents Smile About
What color are your teeth? Really—take a look in the mirror and try to describe the color of your teeth exactly. If shades such as off-white, cappuccino, gray skies or mild mustard come to mind, then the look of your smile may be nothing to joke about. Maybe it’s time to have your teeth professionally whitened. Studies show that people with white teeth are considered to be smarter, friendlier and even more successful than people with discolored smiles. Dr. Capua and her team in Carrollton, TX, offer both professional in-office teeth whitening and take-home whitening for the convenience of patients in the area.
Teeth really do start out very white—just look at the smile of a young child. As we age, however, time and other affects take a toll on the color of our teeth. Some of these include:
- Foods and beverages. We’re not suggesting that you give up some of your favorites—coffee, tea, red wine, tomato sauce and berries—but you should know that these are among the most notorious for causing stains on your teeth.
- If you grind and clench your teeth, then the constant pressure may be darkening the biting surfaces of your teeth, thus making your whole smile look darker.
- Cracks in your teeth. These hairline imperfections can trap food particles that discolor your teeth.
- The antibiotic tetracycline taken at a young age can darken teeth. Likewise, there are some chemotherapy drugs that cause tooth discoloration.
- Traumatic injury. A serious facial blow or a direct hit to one of your teeth can cause internal bleeding that darkens the tooth.
Whatever the reason for your stained and discolored teeth, professional teeth whitening can restore your attractive smile.
Teeth Whitening Lewisville Trusts
Of course, we know that there are plenty of over-the-counter options for teeth whitening. However, please heed our word of caution: these only remove surface, or extrinsic, stains. They cannot whiten deep within your teeth to remove intrinsic stains the way professional teeth whitening can. In addition, store-bought whitening products lose potency as they sit on the shelf.
Our in-office system combines a full-strength whitening gel with the power of lasers to intensify and accelerate the bleaching process. Whitening takes about an hour. If you prefer to whiten your teeth in the privacy of home, then our take-home system is for you. With custom mouth trays and professional grade whitening gel, you can achieve a dazzling smile in about two weeks.
