After you’ve done everything you can and should for your overall health, it’s natural to turn your focus to the aesthetics. How your teeth and smile look can help increase your dental hygiene and your personal confidence.
At Lakeview Pointe Dentistry, we are equipped with the skills and equipment needed to provide you with a whiter, brighter smile. Through our teeth whitening system, you’ll see a marked improvement in the shade and color of your teeth.
Why Would I Need Teeth Whitening?
Teeth are porous, just like your skin. This means they are full of little, microscopic holes through which air and other substances can pass. When you consume certain foods and beverages, those little holes let in staining elements of the food and drink that can cause your teeth to darken. Food and drink that might cause this kind of staining include:
- Sports Drinks.
- Tomato Sauce.
- Soy Sauce.
- Red Wine.
Smoking also causes severe staining and yellowing of teeth. If you avoid the above foods and abstain from smoking, your teeth will retain some of their natural whiteness. However, even when abstaining from naturally staining foods and beverages, teeth yellow naturally simply due to age.
Teeth whitening works to break up the bonds of the discolored molecules within your teeth. The whitening agent soaks into your porous teeth, penetrating past the enamel. Then oxygen molecules from the agent react with the discolored molecules in your teeth, breaking the bonds that hold them together.
