Teeth Whitening in the Roanoke Valley
Teeth whitening is a very safe, painless way to make your smile feel better and brighter and also helping patients feel more happy and confident. In many cases, teeth whitening can help your career as it is necessary in certain fields. Some patients don’t like their smile and feel they’re missing out on special moments because they can’t fully express their excitement. No matter what your reasoning for wanting whiter teeth, our dentists love using teeth whitening to help patients fall in love with their smile again and enjoy every moment to its fullest.
Causes of Discolored or Yellowed Teeth
There are many things that can contribute to discoloration and yellowing of teeth, but some of the more common causes are tobacco, coffee, wine, soda, antibiotics, and certain foods. Genetics can also play a large part in tooth discoloration. Eating healthy foods and avoiding drinks that can cause staining will help eliminate the chances of yellowing teeth, but in some cases, tooth discoloration can happen anyway over time, which is where teeth whitening comes in.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
While there are many different types of treatments available in local stores for teeth whitening, often these can cause more problems than solutions, and you run the risk of harming your teeth. Having your teeth whitened at a dentist office ensures safety for your teeth and longevity of the treatment. Our teeth whitening services last longer and work better than store-bought treatments and are much safer in the long run. You can have a brighter, healthier smile without breaking the bank while also knowing your teeth and gums are not being harmed in any way.
Can Anyone Have Their Teeth Whitened?
As long as your gums and teeth are strong and healthy, most adults can take advantage of our teeth whitening services. Of course our doctors will check the health of your gums and teeth before the whitening treatment to ensure no harm will come to you or your oral cavity. Children must wait 2 years after the enamel on their teeth calcifies before doing any type of teeth whitening. The enamel usually calcifies around the age of 12 or 13, and our dentists are happy to let you know if your child’s teeth are ready for teeth whitening as each case is unique.
