We all have an image of ourselves in our minds. In our self-image, we all have sparkling white teeth. But when you look in the mirror, you may not have the same sparkling white teeth you imagined. In fact, when you look in the mirror, your teeth may be a lot less white than you remembered.
If you are suffering from a lack of white teeth and are looking for a cosmetic dental solution, there are whitening products that can help you have the white teeth you remember. Give Zhou Dental Care a chance to tell you about professional tooth whitening products.
Why Do I Need Teeth Whitening?
There are lots of reasons people may want to whiten their teeth. Over time, people’s teeth darken. If you use tobacco, your teeth will be darker, and more yellow looking than people who don’t use tobacco. If you drink a lot of coffee or tea, your teeth might also be duller. Some people’s teeth darken as they age. Teeth also darken because of medication. Chemotherapy drugs, antibiotics, and other medications can cause teeth to look less white. When you look in the mirror, if you don’t like the way your teeth look, you might want to think about teeth whitening.
Why Do People Whiten Their Teeth?
You may want to whiten your teeth for many different reasons. You might want to whiten your teeth so that they look healthier. You might also want to get your teeth whitened for a special occasion, where people will take a lot of photos - a wedding, baby shower, or a graduation perhaps. If you are going for a job interview or a promotion, you might want to whiten your teeth as well. Whitening your teeth also helps you to look younger. Some people get their teeth whitened because they want to look and feel their best.
How Is Teeth Whitening Done?
There are several ways we can whiten teeth. You can use a tooth whitening toothpaste or mouthwash first. You could also try whitening strips that you can buy over the counter. If you only need to whiten your teeth a couple of shades, and you have some time, this may be all you need.
However, if you need to whiten your teeth quickly, or you need to whiten your teeth several shades, you need to come and see us. Professional whitening treatments work better and faster than over-the-counter alternatives. We can give you whitening trays to take home and use for a week or two.
We can also bleach your teeth in our offices quickly with whitening trays. Your teeth would be noticeably whiter in one visit. You can also try laser whitening in our offices. With laser whitening, we use a gel solution on your teeth, and then we use a laser to get them really white. Each patient is different, but we should be able to get your teeth as white as you want them.
