Ready for a Sparkling White Smile? We Can Help
Coffee, tea, wines, tobacco products, medications and certain foods are the main causes for discoloration and stained teeth. You will find that normal brushing and flossing doesn’t help restore your teeth back to being white. Fortunately, there are several advancements and different types of methods for whitening your teeth to help bring back that glowing and youthful smile.
Skin tone can play a small role in how white your teeth appear. If you are very pale, discoloration or stained teeth may be a little more noticeable. Restoring your tooth color to the natural white shade can play a huge factor in your appearance and self-esteem. Drugstore bought tooth whitening products do not have a lasting result and the gel can often irritate gum tissue. At Downey Dental Arts, we offer various options that last and are safer. Professional whitening while bring the results you were looking for without the hassle of using gel filled strips.
Types of Tooth Whitening
Surface Whitening Products– not only do most over-the-counter products focus just on the surface of the tooth, but often the toothpaste consists of some form of abrasive element. Although the products are generally safe, we recommend speaking with our dentist as wearing away the enamel on your teeth can be very dangerous and cause other problems. Because the products only focus on the surface rather than the lower layers of tooth, you are left with limited results. Whitening toothpastes or gels do not resolve stains that may be deeper than just the surface of the tooth and they should never be used as a substitute for a dental cleaning.
Teeth Bleaching Products– vital bleaching and non-vital bleaching are the two main types of bleaching products. Vital bleaching is best used for teeth that are discolored due to certain foods, wines, tobacco or that may have darkened due to age. Non-vital bleaching is used on teeth that have been treated with a root canal and no longer living. A bleaching mechanism can be put into the pulp chamber and can perform the function of bleaching the entire tooth from inside out.

Please keep in mind that bleach can be very powerful and too sensitive to use for some people as it can cause some gum irritation. We also recommend to get your bleaching products from our office rather than over-the-counter products. In order to maintain the brightness of your teeth, bleaching is recommended every few months.
