Whiten Your Smile Easily
posted: Feb. 28, 2018.
A whiter smile is associated with youth, good health, and attractiveness. However, as the years go by food, drinks, and dental film can change the color of your teeth. You can try to get your smile white again on your own, but you'll find it much easier to visit a cosmetic dentist at Sartorio Dental in Pittsburgh, PA for a teeth whitening treatment.
Just How White Is Your Smile?
Changes in tooth color are often very gradual. You probably haven’t even realized that your teeth have gotten a bit more yellow. A close look in the mirror may reveal stains that settle into the contours and ridges of your teeth. When that discoloration develops on the surface enamel, it can be scrubbed away rather quickly with dental-grade bleaching gel.
Get a White Smile the Easy Way
If you try to whiten your smile on your own, expect to spend a lot of time and effort achieving that goal. Regular whitening products can be messy, difficult to use, and ineffective. The easy way to restore your smile to its former glory is to see your Pittsburgh, PA cosmetic dentist for professional whitening. The procedure takes about an hour in the dentist's chair and is done with special care to ensure that your gums, lips, and the soft tissue in your mouth is protected. The high powered whitening gel brightens your smile several shades in just one sitting. Compare that to waiting weeks for over-the-counter whitening trays and toothpastes to work.
How Long Does Your Whitened Smile Last?
Your brightened smile will last many months—up to two years or more if you take extra precautions to avoid dental staining. Go the extra mile to ensure that your teeth are healthy by brushing often with a toothpaste that strengthens your enamel. Minimize direct contact with color-rich foods and beverages that are likely to yellow or darken your teeth again.
