Protecting your smile from every factor that poses a negative threat to your health is a daunting challenge to undertake, but it is one that is essential for maintaining a lifelong, healthy smile. Indeed, there are several factors that come into contact with your teeth and other oral structures throughout your life and, unfortunately, not nearly as many natural defenses to fend them off. For some, however, the issue may not be a significant infection, but rather, a surface-level stain. In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS dentist discusses the value in cosmetic dental care and how teeth whitening can enhance your smile’s shine.
When Molecules Cling to Your Teeth
It goes without saying that keeping your smile safe and strong is a top priority. After all, preventive care is the name of the game and the only form of dentistry that aims to protect your structures prior to infection or complication. Still, smile complications do not always have to take the form of damage or an infection, and may instead present as nothing more than a surface-level stain or chip.
Although stains on the surfaces of your teeth are not nearly as troubling as a dental infection, that does not mean that they should be ignored and left untreated. You see, many patients seek cosmetic dental care in order to enhance their shine and combat surface-level stains.
Colorful molecules in the foods and beverages you consume tend to stick or cling to the surfaces of your teeth, and compounded molecules can lead to noticeable smile blemishes such as stains. Fortunately, cosmetic teeth whitening can help address these concerns. For more information about this process, give our team a call today.
Breaking-Up and Removing Stains
One of the largest misconceptions about cosmetic care is that it is invasive or complicated to perform. On the contrary, teeth whitening and other options are non-invasive in nature and often only require a visit or two to complete!
When you attend your in-office visit, we will apply a strong but safe bleaching agent to the surfaces of your teeth. This material is then activated with a special light, which causes the material to set to work breaking apart and lifting difficult stains. Contact our office today to learn more about this process and how to get started.
Topical Treatment from the Comfort of Home
If in-office care is not possible, do not fret! We can also help set you up with custom take-home trays that can be used at your own convenience from the comfort of your own home! We just meet with you beforehand so that we can take your impressions and create trays customized to your smile.
