Dr. Kolbensvik: The Smart Choice for Dallas Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening appeals to both men and women, as well as to every size pocketbook.
Who needs Dallas teeth whitening? The short answer is all people who aren’t satisfied with the whiteness of their smiles. What’s gotten your teeth looking less than bright?
Food, drink and smoking: Dark or acidic foods (carrots and oranges) and beverages (red wine, coffee, tea, cola) and nicotine can stain teeth over time.
Age: The years build up wear, tear, and discoloration, as well as break down teeth enamel, letting yellow dentin peek through.
Chemicals: Exposure to tetracycline during early years of teeth formation may result in dark gray or brown teeth stains.
Genetics: Your inherent teeth color, which may range from brownish to yellow to greenish-gray, may intensify over time. The enamel of your teeth, too, may be, predisposed to thinness and translucence.
Teeth trauma: Grinding, gnashing, falls and other injuries may lead to minor or major teeth cracking.
Any and all of these teeth conditions can be improved with teeth whitening. Teeth whitening will remove stains and debris.
Professional Dallas Teeth WhiteningIf you think teeth whitening may be for you, discuss your options and expectations. Dr. K will outline the various procedures, their relative costs, the time commitment required, and expected results. Dr. K may use a teeth whitening shade guide to show you the possible whitening spectrum that you may experience.
Options include an in-office Dallas teeth whitening, which may achieve a significant color change in a short period of time. In-office teeth whitening usually involves the carefully controlled use of a high-concentration peroxide gel. The gel will be applied and remain on the teeth for several 15 to 20 minute intervals.
Also, ask about a dentist-provided take-home Dallas teeth whitening kit. Not the type dispensed in drugstores, these teeth whitening kits can produce great results. Your kit will contain a lower-concentration peroxide gel that remains on the teeth for an hour or longer (sometimes overnight). Whichever teeth whitening system you choose, closely follow the whitening procedures directed.
Be advised that teeth whitening may cause temporary sensitivity to temperature, pressure and touch, usually with the in-the-office Dallas teeth whitening procedure. Use a sensitive teeth toothpaste until this subsides.Maintain your dazzling new smile with zealous brushing and flossing. Avoid “staining” food and beverages for at least one week after Dallas teeth whitening
