Teeth Whitening Cedar Lake

In today’s society and culture our appearance has become something that is highly regarded and can impact how people are treated, how we view ourselves, and even the opportunities we are given. While there are a lot of things about our appearance that should not hold the importance they do in our culture, it can’t be denied that having a healthy, white smile can boost your self-confidence. A survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that the vast majority of Americans found a smile to be an important social asset and when asked what they would most want to improve about their smile, whitening was the most common answer. Taking an interest in aspects of your physical appearance doesn’t have to be a bad thing and a white smile can actually indicate signs of a healthier mouth. Overall, we all want to look our best and be as healthy as we can be. Our professionals at Distinctive Dental want to help our patients achieve these goals! If you are interested in teeth whitening in the Cedar Lake area, give our office a call today to see how we can help.

What Can Cause Tooth Discoloration?

There are a lot of different contributing factors to tooth stains and discoloration including lifestyle, eating habits, some illnesses and medications. It’s important to be aware of these factors so you can try and avoid them and prevent any issues with the color of your teeth. Some of the causes of tooth discoloration are:

  • Cigarettes
  • Wine
  • Dark sauces
  • Coffee
  • Fruits and veggies (blueberries, blackberries, dark leafy greens)
  • Calcium deficiency
  • Liver disease
  • Celiac disease
  • Antihistamine medication
  • High blood pressure medications
  • Antipsychotic medications

By paying attention to some of the causes of tooth discoloration you may be able to prevent it before it becomes a problem. Prevention is always better than treatment! Sometimes though there is nothing we can do to prevent discoloration. In that case you will want to speak with your dentist on what options will be the right choice for you.

Treatment Options for Teeth Whitening

If you have decided that teeth whitening is the best option for you then you will want to research some of the different options. There are many teeth whitening products that you can buy over the counter but this doesn’t mean they will be right for you. Many of these products can cause harm to your teeth or be painful if you have tooth sensitivity. They also won’t achieve the same level of whiteness as options from your dentist’s office. Some professional options your dentist can offer would be professional grade strips, custom take-home tray options, or in office whitening with results within two hours.
