Teeth Whitening Can Improve Your Smile
What you need to know about teeth whitening treatments
Are you afraid to smile because your teeth are dark and yellow? You remember them being much whiter, but that was a long time ago and you’re older now. You don’t have to settle for a less-than-perfect smile just because a few years have gone by. It’s time to consider a teeth whitening treatment to improve your smile. Your dentists at Dr. George Salem and Associates, in Braintree, Massachusetts want to help you discover the magic of a teeth whitening treatment.
Aging changes your body, but it also changes your teeth. Your enamel becomes thinner and more transparent as you age. You and everyone else can see the layer underneath, called dentin, and dentin is naturally yellow. Dentin also darkens with age, resulting in teeth that are dull and dark yellow.
Your teeth will also pick up stain from the foods you eat, especially darkly pigmented foods like berries. Coffee, tea, and red wine are also major culprits for staining. If you are a smoker, you already know what tobacco stains do to your teeth.
If you’ve tried over-the-counter whitening products, you may have received some benefit, but your teeth still aren’t as white as you would like. Many of the products you can buy in the grocery store only remove surface stains. Professional teeth whitening treatments provide profound whitening that lasts. Your dentists at Dr. George Salem and Associates provide these teeth whitening options:
An in-office whitening treatment; professional strength bleaching gel is placed on your teeth and activated using a state-of-the-art light system. In-office whitening takes about an hour and the results can last up to five years!
At-home whitening kits-your dentists will make a set of trays, custom-fit to your teeth, and give you a supply of professional strength bleaching gel. You can wear the trays whenever you want.
Whether you decide on the speedy in-office whitening or the private convenience of at-home whitening, your dentists at Dr. George Salem and Associates are committed to helping you achieve the beautiful white smile you deserve.
