How Can I Get Whiter Teeth?

How Can I Get Whiter Teeth?

A white, dazzling smile is often the first thing people notice about you. However, most people don’t have a naturally white smile. The consumption of cigarettes, coffee, and tea, as well as other beverages and food items, can damage and stain tooth enamel.

Fortunately, you no longer have to give up your favorite foods and drinks to enjoy the benefits of lighting up the room with your smile. At Arbours Aesthetic Dentistry, we offer several cosmetic treatments that enhance the beauty of your smile. If you live in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, or the surrounding areas, and you’d like to learn what treatments are available for a whiter smile, read on. 

Professional dental cleanings

You may be tempted to run to the drugstore and grab a package of whitening strips. However, before you jump to whitening treatments, it’s important to have your teeth cleaned by a dental professional. 

Sometimes a deep clean can reveal a beautiful set of teeth underneath without the need for whitening treatments. Even if you aren’t completely satisfied with the shade of your teeth after a deep clean, a deep clean is still necessary to maintain the integrity of your teeth, as plaque causes decay over time. 

Whitening treatments 

If you decide that your teeth still need a little bit of help even after a deep clean, our team may recommend a professional-grade whitening treatment. 

Our experts use a high-grade bleaching gel activated by a special light that removes brown and yellow stains from the teeth. The treatment is quick and painless, and it provides immediate results that you can show off within hours after leaving our office. 

Porcelain veneers 

Certain imperfections can’t be addressed by a professional dental cleaning or whitening treatments. 

If you have cracks, chips, and discolorations on your teeth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Veneers are wafer-thin shells that we place over the front of your teeth. They can mask a variety of imperfections, and we can tint them to match your favorite shade of white.

Placing the veneers involves removing a thin layer of your dental enamel to make room for the veneers, so porcelain veneers are a permanent procedure. However, once they’re put in place, you’ll have the perfect smile for years to come.
