There are many reasons for teeth whitening, and they are as varied as our patients are in their needs and preferences. Here at Strong & Healthy Smiles, we live up to our name by offering safe, fast, long-lasting, and above all, effective answers for your stained, discolored, or dull teeth.
Two reasons for tooth whitening that are often overlooked are related to age. At a young age, fluoride is essential for developing durable tooth enamel, but as with anything, it can overdone. That results in a condition called fluorosis that stains teeth later on. And many people are not aware that enamel naturally wears as you get older. The effect is gradual, but it is steady. The problem is that the tissue beneath your enamel, the dentin, is not as white. Therefore, it makes your smile more dull. Most often, however our 01062 dentist can trace your issues with stained teeth back to your personal habits. Coffee, tea, red wine, and cola are some of the most common drinks that rob your smile of its whiteness. So do foods like curry, soy sauce, berries, and hard candy. Even tetracycline, a popular prescription drug, has tooth staining as a side-effect. But there is no doubt that at the top of the list is smoking (or even smokeless tobacco, such as vaping). Our 01062 dentist would prefer that you quit, but if you’re not ready to, you know you can see an improvement with our teeth whitening. Improving your smile can have a positive impact on every aspect of your life, including professionally. And if you’re out there in the dating world, a whiter and brighter smile certainly helps. But do it most of all for yourself; for increased self-esteem and confidence.
