Teeth Whitening Q & A
Why aren’t my teeth perfectly white?
The truth is that no one has perfectly white teeth. Even if you take great care of your teeth, there is always a bit of discoloration. However, some people have noticeably yellowed or stained teeth.
If you’re bothered by discolored teeth, the culprit may be related to:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Drinking heavily pigmented beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine
- Eating pigmented foods, like berries and tomato sauces
- Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco
- Taking certain medications
Also, as you get older, your teeth naturally darken. That is because, as you age, your inner tooth layer, the dentin, turns more yellow. At the same time, your hard outer tooth layer, the enamel, becomes thinner due to wear-and-tear. That allows the dentin to shine through.
How can I whiten my teeth?
To help you acquire the pearly whites of your dreams, Dr. Snodell and his team at Cedar Park Orthodontics offer take-home whitening kits. Whitening kits include customized trays and whitening gel that you can apply at home.
Take-home whitening kits allow you to whiten your teeth gradually in the comfort of your own home with professional quality products that you can’t buy off a shelf.
How does take-home teeth whitening work?
When you visit Cedar Park Orthodontics for a teeth whitening consultation, Dr. Snodell starts by taking an impression of your upper and lower teeth. He then sends these to a dental lab, where technicians create trays that perfectly hug your teeth.
When your whitening trays arrive a few weeks later, Dr. Snodell explains how to properly dispense the whitening solution into the trays, and how to fit them around your teeth. He also instructs how long to wear them every day, and how long to continue treatment.
Typically, you must commit to daily at-home whitening for about two weeks to see optimal results. If, after two weeks, you haven’t reached the level of teeth whitening that you desire, Dr. Snodell can extend your treatment plan.
If you’re ready to say goodbye to yellow teeth and hello to a brilliant smile, book your teeth whitening consultation with Dr. Snodell at Cedar Park Orthodontics today. To get started, reach out to the practice via the online booking tool or over the phone.
