Riverside Dental Group offers teeth whitening in california

Even with proper dental hygiene, staining can still occur. Popular beverages like coffee, tea, and soda can cause your teeth to yellow over time. Some of your favorite foods may be discoloring your smile, too. To revitalize your pearly whites, Riverside Dental Group of California offers in-office or at-home stain removal to whiten your teeth.

How Teeth Become Stained

As mentioned above, some of your favorite foods and drinks can cause your teeth to lose their brightness. The tannins and acidity in these snacks wear the enamel over time. Habits like smoking or using tobacco, having a diet that is heavy in sugar, and poor oral health can also cause your teeth to be stained.

To prevent discoloration, a consistent oral hygiene routine and a healthy diet can help. Brushing and flossing help remove leftover particles after eating and also combat cavity-causing bacteria. You can use whitening toothpaste but try to limit the use as this can harm your enamel.

How Whitening Works

In our office, there are two treatments available for brightening. An in-office treatment can lift stains off of your pearly whites within one appointment. We will apply a bleaching agent to the teeth, and after two hours you will have a brand-new smile. If you would prefer to do this yourself, we have take-home trays. You will apply these every day for about two weeks. Then, enjoy a brighter smile. Unlike store-bought strips, this at-home treatment will be created to target your unique needs.

Other Cosmetic Options

Tooth whitening may need to be repeated every few years. To have the longest-lasting effect, limit your consumption of stain-causing foods and drinks. Drinking coffee and soda through a straw can help keep your smile safe from discoloration.  Be sure to continue following a dental hygiene routine and coming in for checkups and cleanings every six months.

In some cases, professional whitening may not give you the desired effect. If you have deeper staining, a bonding option may help you achieve a brighter-looking smile. This process adds composite resin to the problem area and creates an even and bright look. You can also talk to your dentist about porcelain veneers if you want a permanent solution.
