How Can I Correct A Dull Smile?
- Posted on: Jun 30 2018
We’ll admit it. Even some of us here at Deeter Dental Group can make bad decisions regarding our teeth. After a long night, we might forget to floss. If we’re really busy, we might use a toothbrush for longer than we recommend our patients. But what’s the worst dental sin we’ve committed? Drinking coffee, tea, and wine; or having used tobacco products in our youth. Wait, why are those so bad for teeth? Well, we hate to ruin them for you, but all of those items are known teeth-stainers.
Obviously you don’t notice your teeth darkening the moment you finish a glass of wine, but over time the effect can be quite dramatic. Look around, you might even be able to tell a coffee-drinker from a non-coffee drinker just by their teeth! Now, before you worry about being one of those with a stained smile, we’ve got just the fix in at-home teeth whitening services!
Maybe you’ve thought about teeth whitening before. Chances are, you’ve seen teeth whitening strips in the grocery store and wondered if they really work. Maybe you’ve even tried them! And though they aren’t bad, they do have some drawbacks. Namely, we think the strips only fit certain smiles. If you have a nice, big smile, they might not reach all of your visible teeth. They’ve also been known to slip off, taste awful, or just plain not work.
If they do work for you, that’s great! But if you’re looking for another option, we offer customized at-home teeth whitening. We like customized teeth whitening for a few reasons.
- You use a tray made from impressions of your own teeth. Every tooth gets whitened to the same shade.
- We have access to different strengths of teeth whitener. That means you can choose what color you want your teeth to be. Not interested in the blinding white of celebrities’ teeth? No problem. If you want to see a dramatic change? We have more powerful whiteners than what is sold in grocery stores to help you see a noticeable difference in your smile.
No matter what you’re looking for in teeth whitening, starting with a visit to your dentist is important. We can perform a cleaning to help remove surface stains and help avoid complications like whitening your teeth but not that veneer you forgot about. Give us a call today at (701) 222-1800 to schedule your teeth whitening consultation with us!
