Would you be surprised to know that people in the United States shell out upwards of 1.4 billion dollars each year to take a gamble on over-the-counter teeth whitening kits? Some work, some don’t, and some can cause tooth damage if your teeth are not in healthy shape. The best way to enjoy teeth whitening is to consult with a dentist first. What if you got your teeth whitening for free? Well, one lucky fan of Comfort Dental Spa’s Facebook page will be taking professional quality whitening home with them at the end of August. Your Farmington Hills dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari, will tell you more about the advantages of take-home cosmetic teeth whitening.
What Causes Teeth Stains?
Discoloration of teeth is a natural part of aging. There are in fact two types of teeth stains: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic teeth stains manifest on the surface of your teeth as a result of what you expose them to. People that are heavy users of tobacco products, and/or drink a lot of red wine, coffee, tea, or cola are likely to have more of a propensity toward extrinsic stains. Intrinsic stains, on the other hand, happen from within your tooth structure. Causes of intrinsic discolorations are usually certain types of drugs (prescription or otherwise) or dental injury that damages the root while the tooth structure remains intact.
Whitening at Home
Zoom! bleaching is an in-office teeth whitening method that is very popular, but many people appreciate the opportunity to whiten in the comfort of their own home, on their own schedule. In order to begin the process of a take-home teeth whitening treatment, you’ll just need to visit your Farmington Hills dentist for one consultation. Dr. Askari will first make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough to sustain the whitening chemicals. Impressions of your teeth will be taken so that your customized bleaching trays can be fabricated to fit your smile perfectly. This insures that the bleaching gel will hit all of the parts of your teeth for even whitening. After your treatment is complete, you can keep your trays and extra gel for occasional whitening touch-ups.
