Teeth Whitening Q & A

Floss Dental

What makes teeth yellowed or stained?

If you’ve noticed changes in your smile over the years, you’re certainly not alone. The primary culprit is age, and virtually everyone experiences shifts in the shade of their teeth as they grow older.

The outermost layer of your teeth is a hard, white tissue called enamel. Just beneath your enamel lies another layer of hard tissue called dentin. Your dentin is naturally yellow in color, and as your enamel wears away, more of the dentin shows, giving your teeth a yellow cast.

The food and beverages you choose can also change the color of your teeth. Things like coffee, tea, wine, and even certain fruits can stain your teeth, taking away some of their gleam.

Fortunately, teeth whitening can erase stains and bring your teeth back to their youthful, bright appearance.

How does teeth whitening work?

At Floss West University, Dr. Rewari uses a professional-strength formula to safely and effectively whiten your teeth. The solution is expertly applied to the surface of your teeth and whitens within an hour.

The whitening solution includes fluoride and potassium nitrate to decrease teeth sensitivity and help strengthen your teeth. You leave the office with a gorgeous, gleaming smile.

Why should I consider teeth whitening?

If you don’t feel great about your smile, you’re less likely to share it with the world. Teeth whitening can boost your confidence and give you a more youthful, healthy appearance.

Once you see how gorgeous your smile can become, you may be motivated to take better care of your teeth and incorporate improved brushing and flossing habits. Those changes can have a huge impact on your dental health over time.

What about over-the-counter teeth whitening products?

Virtually every drugstore or grocery store has an impressive selection of at-home teeth whitening products, all of which claim the power to transform your smile. None of these products, however, can match the power of the whitening agents available only to dental professionals.

Over-the-counter whitening rinses, pastes, gels, and strips may be able to help lessen the appearance of some surface staining, but they can’t achieve the bright smile available through professional teeth whitening. It’s also possible to harm your gum tissue through misuse of over-the-counter whitening products.

If you’re ready to bring out the very best in your smile, schedule a visit with Dr. Rewari at Floss West University.
