What Is Teeth Whitening?
Your teeth will change in color over the years. Aging, dark beverages, smoking and even certain foods can change the color and brightness of your smile. Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that removes stains and brings a healthy, youthful glow to your smile. It is one of the quickest and least expensive cosmetic treatments that can substantially improve the appearance of your smile. At The Smile Lounge, we offer Zoom! teeth whitening, which is an in-office treatment that can whiten your smile several shades in just one visit.
Why Is Teeth Whitening Needed?
Darker teeth may look unhealthy and unattractive. It can make you appear older, since teeth dull and darken with age. Teeth whitening can give you back a more youthful and healthy appearance to your smile. Many people feel more confident when they know their teeth are white and bright. If you drink coffee, tea, red wine or other dark beverages, or you use/used tobacco products, you can erase those dark yellow or brown stains with a quick, teeth whitening treatment.
Who Is a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
If you have stains or discoloration on your natural teeth, you may be a good candidate for teeth whitening. However, teeth whitening will not change the color of tooth restorations such as fillings, bridges, crowns or dental bonding. To see if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, schedule a cosmetic dental consultation at our office in Grand Prairie to discuss the best way to improve the color and appearance of your smile.
