FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(New Braunfels, TX)– With summer on the horizon, many are frantically trying to get their bodies in shape so they can look good in their swimsuits. Unfortunately, when sprucing up their body, many neglect their smile and end up feeling self-conscious about their appearance all summer long. Ideal Dentistry wants their patients to be aware a brilliantly white smile will make them look even more attractive while hanging out at the pool or by the beach over the next few months.
Some think a tan body will make their smile look more attractive. While tanning can make the teeth look whiter, it can also sometimes bring out the yellow undertones of teeth and make them look more discolored. Daniel Allen, DDS recommends patients come in before the warm weather strikes so they can get their vacation smile ready. “Teeth whitening has come a long way over the last twenty years and we are now able to offer amazing results that look natural and allow people to feel more confident in their appearance.”
Whitening treatments are carried out in the dental chair and can allow patients to see their teeth go up to ten shades lighter, depending on their age and the depth of staining. Most treatments today use special lights that enhance the whitening ability of the gel that is placed on the teeth. Using light to create oxygen, the hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide breaks up the stains making the teeth whiter.
The whitening treatments allow for extrinsic and intrinsic stains to be removed or at least reduced. Some individuals may only need one treatment while others may require an at-home protocol to continue the whitening action that was completed in the dental chair.
Dr. Allen had this to say regarding what causes the teeth to become stained. “As our teeth age, the microscopic pores widen, allowing for increased intrinsic staining which can be impossible to remove with brushing alone. We help our patients renew the whiteness of their teeth which can help camouflage minor cosmetic imperfections so their smile looks amazing.”
The foods a person eats, what they drink, and certain habits like smoking can all take their toll on the brightness and whiteness of the teeth. By having a whitening treatment carried out, individuals can improve their appearance so they will feel more confident this summer as they step out in less clothing and face the world with a smile.
