Teeth WhiteningDo you want sparkling white teeth? Do you want to be able to smile without having to photoshop your teeth? Well, that's understandable. Your Shelby Township, MI, dentist Dr. Sood has just the answer: Teeth whitening!

What does teeth whitening do?

Teeth whitening rejuvenates your smile. It removes stains and yellowing, dullness, and discoloration.

Do you have a tainted smile?

There are many contributing factors when it comes to your teeth yellowing and becoming discolored. Here are a few reasons:

  • Drinking too much tea and coffee, and eating too many berries can also stain your teeth.
  • Not eating healthy foods like apples scrapes away plaque and drinking enough water can help remove food debris from teeth.
  • Medications like certain antibiotics can stain teeth.
  • Not maintaining a healthy oral and dental regiment may contribute to plaque and tartar buildup.
  • Chewing tobacco and smoking can cause the accumulation of stains on teeth.
  • Aging does play a factor because the dentin under the tooth enamel is yellow and is exposed over time.

What are the different types of teeth whitening treatments?

  • You can buy teeth-whitening toothpaste but that may not be the best for your teeth. Sometimes they consist of harsh substances that can cause damage to your teeth.
     
  • In-office teeth whitening: The doctor will use retractors to prevent your cheeks and lips from touching the bleach put on your teeth. The dentist will leave the bleach on your teeth for about an hour then remove it.
     
  • At-home kit: Your Shelby Township doctor will give you a kit that can be used at home. It's convenient so that you can brighten your teeth when it's convenient for you. Make sure you listen to your doctor's instructions though!

If you're interested in improving the brightness of your teeth, then you need to contact your Shelby Township, MI, dentist Dr. Sood can help you, then call today!
