While most people are satisfied with the tooth sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and regular cleanings at Easton Smiles, some may still desire a whiter smile. If you’re looking to go beyond regular care to make your smile look brighter, consider professional in-office tooth whitening with Drs. Herlihy and Tuck at Easton Smiles. During a tooth whitening consultation, our Mansfield cosmetic dentists will explain the benefits of each tooth whitening procedure so you can make an informed decision. Treatment can often start immediately, so you can enjoy your new smile right then and there.
Most patients that come to Easton Smiles for tooth whitening have teeth that are stained and darkened from the same four factors: age, coffee, tea, and smoking. As we age, our teeth naturally become discolored as a result of the thinning of the tooth enamel. Because of this natural process, tooth color is one of the characteristics most strongly associated with age. With their many years of experience, the Mansfield general dentists at Easton Smiles have found that teeth naturally darkened with the color of yellow, brown or orange often respond better to tooth whitening procedures. Alternatively, teeth that are from the inside out, say from excessive tooth decay, will not bleach well at all. Likewise, whitening may not enhance your smile if you have had dental fillings or crowns. Tooth bleaching does not affect any dental appliances, in which case you may want to consider porcelain veneers as an alternative cosmetic procedure.
If your teeth are stained or discolored or if you’re just not happy with the color of your teeth, schedule a tooth whitening consultation at Easton Smiles today!
