What causes teeth to lose their natural color?
As we go through life, there are several factors that may cause teeth to become dull or discolored. The simple act of aging does this, and we help the process along by consuming foods that may contain natural tannins, dye, or other chemicals that yellow the teeth. The good news is that, regardless of what causes yellow or dull teeth, there are ways to improve their appearance.
How does teeth whitening work?
Whitening teeth means that they are lightened using a bleaching process that is safe and highly effective when done under the care of a professional. The problem today is that teeth whitening products can be found for a very low cost at just about any store. This wide variety of products only serve to confuse people as to what is effective, and waste valuable time and money due to short-lived results.
Why have you teeth whitened with the help of a dentist?
Dr. Fry sees patients who have tried whitening pastes, strips, or liquids without success. Each one of these smiles drastically improved after receiving an FDA-approved whitening treatment obtained in our office. Dr. Fry offers several whitening options to meet the financial and aesthetic needs of each individual patient, such as:
- In-office treatments that give quick results
- In-home and in office treatments that are more gradual and longer lasting
- Combination of both to give a quick boost and then maintain long-term
When undergoing one of our whitening treatments, patients are able to receive monitoring in order to achieve optimal results without irritation to gums or teeth.
