Yellowing teeth is an incredibly common dental problem. Stained teeth and discoloration is normal and can come from day to day activities such as drinking dark sodas, coffee, or red wine. Foods that are dark and can easily stain clothing can also easily stain the enamel of your teeth, leaving them looking yellow, brown, or even grey. But the good news is, we can help. At Ralston Creek Dental, we have a wide variety of dental whitening tools that can help you achieve a bright smile.
One of our most popular dental whitening options is our take-home whitening trays. This is a quick and cost-effective way to take whitening into your own hands. This professional whitening kit can be purchased at our office and we can help instruct you on how to use it too. The length of time you need to wear these take-home trays will vary depending on how white you want your teeth to be and how strong the whitening solution is.
Night strips are an incredibly convenient way to whiten your teeth. All you’ve got to do is put them in, go to bed, and you can wake up in the morning with a new and improved smile. These are economical and easy to use. If you’re unsure how to use them or how long to wear them for, we can help you decide. Different people have different preferences about how white they’d like their teeth to be.
Other Whitening Options
Some other actions you can take to keep your teeth from becoming stained or yellowed include brushing and flossing daily. Purchasing a toothpaste or mouthwash that includes some form of whitening can also be wise. You can even avoid or decrease your consumption of foods and beverages that could cause your teeth to lose their whiteness.
Teeth whitening can add a level of confidence in yourself that can help you succeed in all areas of life! If you’d like to learn more about the whitening option we offer at Ralston Creek Dental, give us a call today. We’d love to answer any questions you might have.
