It is everyone’s wish to have that bright and killer smile. Yellow or stained teeth ruin your self-confidence and esteem. David Shouhed DDS can help change the situation since he offers various teeth whitening procedures that whiten, making you beam confidence and admiration to everyone who comes your way.
As you age, your teeth become less vibrant and start yellowing due to wearing the outer layer of your teeth known as the enamel, making your dentin more visible. Your teeth may also appear yellow due to the nature of your dentin. Stained teeth can significantly affect the quality of your smile as well as notably affect your self-esteem. Some of the causes of teeth discoloration include:
· Smoking tobacco or cigarettes
· Excessive drinking of coffee, red wine, or tea
· Intake of certain medicines
· Poor oral hygiene
· Dental illnesses that may interfere with the normal growth of your enamel
· Excessive intake of foods such as tomato sauces and berries may stain your teeth
Dr. Shouhed and his team examine your teeth and offer an effective whitening procedure that will leave your teeth looking healthy and vibrant. The team offers both in-office and at-home whitening for your comfort and convenience.
· Teeth whitening at home
If you like to experiment, a teeth whitening procedure at home is something for you. Your doctor may recommend Opalescence PF take-home whitening. This system has various customizations to blend with a normal smile while the gel does its work in your mouth. The Opalescence PF take-home whitening consists of five distinct whitening gel concentrations that you should use at a specific time to make your experience effective and exciting. These gel concentrations have special designs such that you can wear them for a short period and still achieve excellent results. Your teeth will transform in a few weeks after the procedure.
· In-office teeth whitening
Dr. Shouhed offers Opalescence Boost, an in-office whitening procedure, which brightens your teeth within an hour. Opalescence Boost consists of potassium nitrate and fluoride, which shields your teeth from cavities, strengthens your tooth enamel, and improves the general appearance of your teeth. In-office teeth whitening is advantageous considering you do not need to keep redoing the procedure like the at-home whitening technique. Additionally, this whitening procedure has passed all the safety requirements due to its low use of ultraviolet rays.
After undergoing the whitening procedure, your doctor will provide the details needed for you to maintain the glow. Some steps you can take include:
· Avoid smoking tobacco and cigarettes
· Reduce the consumption of coffee, red wine, tea, and other drinks that may stain your teeth
· Visiting the dentist every six months
· Flossing and brushing twice a day
