Dark stains or even the dulling of your smile can leave you feeling embarrassed or just plain dissatisfied. We are a society that appreciates attractiveness in the smile, with research showing that the majority of adults find this feature vital to personal and professional success. If you are not satisfied with the brightness of your smile, there is a proven way to handle stains, and Dr. Andrew Zakarian can provide the ideal treatment for you.
Our teeth naturally tend to discolor over time, faced with a variety of elements and substances such as:
- Tea and / or coffee
- Red wine
- Richly-colored berries or juices
- Genetic predisposition
- Poor oral hygiene
Taking care of your teeth and receiving regular cleanings from your friendly hygienist may enhance the brightness of your smile somewhat. When stains are affecting how you feel about this important facial feature, professional teeth whitening from your San Diego dentist can get you back on track.
Teeth whitening is a simple treatment that needs no bells and whistles. What is necessary for effective whitening is simply professional grade whitening solution, custom-fitted whitening trays, and a few weeks of your time. At Natural Dental Arts, we help patients achieve their smile goals using convenient home-whitening trays, designed to fit against the teeth perfectly.
Getting rid of stains is as simple as visiting your San Diego holistic dentist. During your first visit for teeth whitening, an experienced member of our dental team will take impressions of both upper and lower arches. The molds of your teeth will be sent to a dental laboratory where your teeth whitening trays will be made. In a subsequent visit, your trays will be evaluated for fit, and you will purchase your supply of professional-grade teeth whitening gel.
Teeth whitening trays may be worn for a few minutes a day, or as long as all night, while you sleep. Within a few days of regular use, you will notice your best smile starting to emerge as years of stains are lifted from within the deeper areas of enamel. Typically, two weeks of treatment is all it takes to transform a dull smile into one that is brilliant and youthful.
Many people crave a brighter smile. This is evident in the mass production of whitening products found in most stores. While these products are regularly purchased, this trend speaks nothing of the effectiveness of over the counter teeth whitening systems. As many people have discovered, the most effective, most comfortable way to remove stains from teeth is through professional treatment.
