It’s amazing how a brighter smile can instantly make you feel better about your appearance. You may find yourself smiling more often, planning more social outings, and feeling ready to knock those important business presentations out of the park. Our Folsom, CA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Shaina DiMariano, wants to make sure that you have a smile that you are proud of, which is why our office is proud to offer professional teeth whitening options! Read on to learn more.
What causes dental stains?
Everything from cigarettes, to food, to simply undergoing the aging process can all affect the color of our teeth. If you find that your smile has gone from vibrant to dull over the years, then you may want to look at your diet more closely to see if that could be causing your yellowing teeth. Foods and drinks that can cause stains include:
- Coffee and black tea
- Red wine
- Dark condiments (e.g. tomato sauce, soy sauce)
Citrus, sodas, and sports drinks also all contain acid, which weakens tooth enamel and leads to discolorations. Fortunately, if you are dealing with dental stains, then professional teeth whitening is the answer to improving your look.
How can professional teeth whitening help?
One of the reasons that patients love this treatment so much is that no other cosmetic dentistry option offers faster results. In fact, many of our patients will receive the desired effects after just a single one-hour, in-office whitening session at our Folsom, CA, practice. Of course, if you would rather enjoy the convenience of whitening from home, talk to us about our at-home whitening treatment, which can give you results in about 1-2 weeks.
No matter whether you just want to rebuild your confidence with teeth whitening or you want a whiter smile before your wedding day, our Folsom, CA, office can help you achieve that whiter smile with cosmetic dentistry.
