In the age of smartphones, nearly everyone has a camera available at all times. At this time of year, the beautiful leaves offer a great opportunity for wonderful photos.
As amazing as orange, red, and yellow leaves can be, you may not feel the same way about having teeth in a variety of shades. If you are looking to bring the shine back to your smile this season, we have some excellent options for you to consider at North Oaks Dental. Call 248-712-1522 today to schedule an appointment at our Royal Oak, MI office to learn how you could have picture-perfect white teeth again.
What Happens To Your Teeth
You may enjoy a cult of coffee (or two) in the morning. You might have soft drinks daily with your lunch or to give you a boost in the afternoon). You enjoy pizza, pasta, burritos, and other foods covered with colorful sauces. And don’t get us started on desserts.
The truth is that discoloration of your teeth is almost inevitable. Most things that we eat and drink leave a little something behind that affects our smiles. Now, one meal isn’t going to turn your teeth from pearly white to canary yellow. Often the changes are so gradual that we don’t notice them as they are happening.
Then one day, you see it. You’re looking in the mirror or at a photo, and your teeth just aren’t as bright as you would like them to be. You may become self-conscious and start hiding your smile. In some cases, people even started covering their mouths when they speak out of concern that someone else might see their teeth.
We don’t want you to feel like you have to conceal your happiness. We want to improve the appearance of your smile and your confidence at the same time.
Know Your Options
We have helped countless people remove the stains from their smiles with our two professional teeth whitening options.
Many people have tried over-the-counter whitening products. These products are generally easy to use, but they often don’t give people the results they want. More often than we can count, patients have come to us because they were disappointed with the stuff they found in the toothpaste aisle.
Professional whitening products have higher concentrations of bleaching agents. This allows them to remove deep stains more effectively and more efficiently when they are used as directed. With our take-home kits, you will receive sturdy trays and whitening gel options that can be used during the day or at night.
To make things even easier, schedule an in-office whitening treatment. With Zoom whitening, you can see a noticeable improvement in your smile in a single visit to our office. This is a great option if you are looking for the fastest possible results.
As effective as teeth whitening can be, it isn’t a good option for everyone. Before you try any whitening product, you should let one of our doctors examine your teeth. If you have an issue that would make whitening less advisable, you can still create a whiter smile with dental veneers.
Veneers are like small shells that are attached to the front of your teeth. They are custom-designed to fit your smile and they can be shaded to be as bright as you want them to be. In as few as two dental visits, you could dramatically improve the color of your smile.
