Fall Into A Brighter, Whiter Smile
- Posted on: Sep 19 2016
Hello and welcome to another September edition of the Clear Lake Dental Care blog!
We hope that you and your family are holding on to your sanity in this busy season of post-summer activity.
If it helps you to start the day off with a cup of coffee or relax with a glass of wine in the evening, you may have noticed that such pleasures will literally leave their mark on your smile. And that won’t be a good situation for you.
Yellow, stained, or otherwise discolored teeth will embarrass you each time you go to open your mouth. It will impact your confidence, willingness to socialize, and so forth.
So, what can be done about it?
Everyone claims to have a product that can make your teeth sparkle. Just look around the next time you are at the supermarket. The thing is that most of them won’t get the job done safely or effectively.
For best results, you will need to visit the dentist! Keep reading, and then be sure to get in touch with our Webster, TX dentist’s office to schedule your appointment with Dr. Das.
Over-The-Counter Solutions Are Underwhelming
Over the counter whitening kits are slow to work. They can take months to get you the results we can accomplish in just a few appointments at Clear Lake Dental Care. That’s if they work at all!
What’s more, such kits are not good for your body.
That’s because they are often manufactured with one-size-fits-all trays, which can create some real problems.
You might not give it a second thought but trays that are not properly placed in your mouth can expose your gums to harmful whitening products that are fine for your teeth but not so good for your soft tissues.
Another drawback to over the counter whitening products is that they are simply not as effective as whitening from the dentist’s office. And when they fail, you will only have yourself to blame since it is a DIY affair.
Dr. Das Does It Better
The big benefit to having office-guided teeth whitening is the use of custom whitening trays. We craft these trays from impressions of your own teeth, so you can trust that they are going to be an exact fit.
This means that the whitening solution is staying exactly where it needs to be and won’t be able to harm your gums. Beyond that, our team can make sure you are using the most appropriate whitening solution for your specific type of stains.
We can also make sure that the process is happening correctly so that your teeth get the full whitening effect without any adverse side-effects. We genuinely want to help you improve the appearance of your smile but not at the expense of your oral health.
Overuse of whitening can cause your tooth enamel to weaken and, as we discussed earlier, it can damage your gums.
By allowing our office to guide your whitening treatment, you can be confident that you are on the right track.
Let’s Do This!
We hope that you have been inspired by today’s post to take the next step! Clear Lake Dental Care can reverse the effects of food and beverage stains on your teeth.
