Brighten Your Smile By Multiple Shades

When you have major discoloration in your smile, you could feel uncomfortable with your appearance. To brighten teeth and improve your confidence, you may need a cosmetic treatment option. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how we brighten smiles with our custom teeth whitening treatment.

The Causes Of Your Teeth Stains

Why do our teeth become discolored? This is often due to our daily habits. For example, lack of proper brushing and flossing allows particles of sugar and starch to remain stuck between teeth. As bacteria break them down this creates plaque buildup and makes stains more visible. Drinks with dark pigments, such as coffee, soda, red wine, and tea are factors too, as is using cigarettes and using other tobacco products. Lack of regular six-month cleanings is a factor too, as this allows plaque and tartar to become more severe. To brighten your smile, you need teeth whitening.

Removing Discoloration

How do we remove your stains? We will provide a professional grade teeth whitening treatment that can be used from the comfort of your own home. Our team will create a custom-fitted set of plastic trays, and provide syringes filled with a powerful bleaching gel. At home, you will add gel to these trays and wear them for about 30 to 45 minutes each day. The trays not only ensure even results across your smile, but also prevent the gel from being diluted by saliva. The total treatment time typically takes about one to two weeks. The exact time will depend on the cause and extent of your teeth stains. The trays and remaining gel are then yours to use for touch-ups as needed in the future.

Avoiding Major Staining

What can be done to limit the severity of teeth stains? First, cut back on drinks with dark pigments and drink water, which helps cleanse the smile. You should cut back on the sugar and starch in your diet too. Make sure you brush twice a day for two minutes and floss every evening too, as this fights plaque severity until your next dental cleaning, in which we remove the buildup and polish your teeth for a brighter appearance. These actions not only boost smile beauty, but also fight cavities and gum disease too.
