What’s the fastest way to improve your smile?
In many cases, it is professional teeth whitening. Stained teeth are something that everyone develops eventually.
Caffeine isn’t the only thing in your coffee after all. Whether you take your coffee black or with lots of sugar and cream, it will cause your teeth to turn darker after you’ve had enough cups.
We aren’t blaming stains on coffee exclusively, it’s just one of the most common contributors to darker and yellower teeth.
At Marineland Dental Care, we use Zoom Whitening to give whiter, brighter smiles to our patients in and around Kennewick, WA.
You Can Get Back Your White Smile
Every day, we eat more food and drink more tea, soft drinks, and, yes, coffee. All of those things leave behind particles that cling to our teeth.
This is a big part of why we brush and floss our teeth. This removes a lot of those — a lot, but not 100 percent of the particles.
With time, those trace elements add up. Gradually our teeth will start to turn colors. Most of the time these changes happen so slowly that we never pay attention to them.
Then, one day, when we are looking at a photo or looking in the mirror, we can’t help noticing how yellow or how dark our teeth have become.
Our initial response may be embarrassment. Have other people noticed this? What must they think?
The truth is that brushing and flossing can slow the progress of the stains, but you won’t ever be able to stop it completely. Having yellow teeth doesn’t necessarily mean that you have unhealthy teeth, although we think most people would agree that whiter teeth look healthier.
A Quick Word About Tobacco
If brushing and flossing can slow the progress of teeth staining, then tobacco use can move it into the fast lane.
By now, it’s common knowledge that tobacco products are bad for your health. In addition to increasing your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and many kinds of cancer, including oral cancer, tobacco products also make your look, well, ugly.
The tobacco used for cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and chewing tobacco products all cause staining with regular use. On top of this, tobacco stains are harder to remove than stains caused by food and drinks.
We know teeth stains may not be the most important reason for you to quit using tobacco. Yet, if it will help convince you to stop using, then we wanted to mention it.
Kinds Of Teeth Whitening
We are well aware that a wide range of “whitening” products is available in almost any toothpaste aisle.
More importantly, we are aware that none of them have the whitening power than Zoom whitening does. Why are we so confident? Because Zoom is a professional teeth whitening product.
That means it is considerably stronger than anything you can buy at a supermarket or big box store. It’s also why Zoom is only available at dentist offices like ours.
What makes Zoom different from the commercial products? First and foremost, it has a higher concentration of the whitening agent. This makes is more efficient and more effective.
With the best over-the-counter whitening products, you will need to use it for weeks to see minor improvements in the color of your teeth. With Zoom, it’s possible to improve the color of your teeth by up to 8 shades in a single visit to our office.
Years, maybe decades, of stains can be removed in less time than you may have realized was possible.
Think about it this way. Your driveway can develop stains too. Vehicle fluids, spilled paint, and dirt all can contribute to the discoloration of your driveway.
If you were ready to remove those stains, would you grab a garden hose with the spray attachment? Or would you prefer to use a power washer instead?
Even though both use the same ingredient, one will do the job a lot faster and move effectively. Why? because they power washer is stronger and more concentrated.
You could think of Zoom whitening as power washing for your mouth.
