Have you always wanted a bright smile like the stars of the silver screen? Dr. Thomas DeFinnis at Wynnewood Dental Arts can give you a glowing smile with just one in-office whitening session. That’s right – one visit!
Why Teeth Discolor
Typically, teeth are very white during childhood, but as we age, tooth enamel starts to thin, soak up stains, and discolor. Underneath enamel is dentin, a yellowish layer of our teeth. As tooth enamel thins, its translucency increases, which allows the yellowish dentin to show through.
In addition, tooth enamel is porous, like a ceramic bathtub. Over time, our consumption of beverages, like soda, tea, coffee, or red wine, and foods, like berries and chocolate, stains tooth enamel. Tobacco, smoked or chewed, also stains teeth.
- Over-the-counter whitening kits- The whitening systems purchased in a drug store usually come in the form of strips, paint-on applicators, or gel trays. While they work well for some, over-the-counter teeth whitening products don’t have the potent concentration of active ingredients that dentist-prescribed systems contain. If you’re disappointed with drugstore whitening, it’s time to see Dr. DeFinnis.
- Professional take-home whitening kits- If you’d like to whiten your teeth at home, gradually, over a few weeks, take-home trays are the right choice. Dr. DeFinnis will custom make fitted mouth trays to hold a strong, yet safe, bleaching solution against your teeth. Wear the trays a few hours in the evening, and you’ll notice sensational results in about 14 days. Keep your trays, call Wynnewood Dental Arts when you need more whitening gel, and you can touch-up your teeth whenever they begin to discolor.
