Fair or not people cannot help but judge other people by their smiles, including the whiteness of their teeth. People with whiter, brighter smiles are consistently ranked as more attractive, more successful, and even more honest. However, other people’s perceptions aside, it is also common to want whiter, brighter teeth for personal satisfaction and self confidence. That’s why Weaver-Jaynes DDS is pleased to offer teeth whitening services to our patients.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Over time teeth become stained by foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, wine, berries, as well as from cigarettes and other tobacco products. These staining effects are also naturally exacerbated as people age and the surface enamel on their teeth begins to wear thin, thereby allowing the underlying dentin of the tooth, a naturally yellowish color, to show through. Teeth may also become discolored as a result of intrinsic conditions such as traumatic injuries, dental conditions such as fluorosis, or even the use of some medications.
Teeth whitening helps reverse these effects, both from external sources such as foods, beverages, and tobacco, as well as the intrinsic sources mentioned above. To achieve this whitening specially formulated products containing peroxide, bleach, or other agents are administered to the stained teeth. Teeth whitening is very effective, particularly when it is professionally performed, and nearly everyone who opts to have the procedure done notices some improvement in tooth whiteness with effects ranging from subtle to dramatic.
The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening:
- More effective than over-the-counter products
- Safe and closely monitored
