It is natural to desire brighter and whiter teeth that sparkle when you smile! In fact, 90% of people in the U.S. opt for teeth whitening. A survey by American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry also found that whiter teeth are what most people name when asked what aspect of their smile they would like to improve.

Why do you need teeth whitening?

Although regular flossing and brushing can keep your teeth clean, it cannot get rid of the staining or yellowing that sets in over a period of time. Teeth get stained due to many reasons:

Dark colored foods: Caffeine found in fizzy drinks, coffee, tea or chocolate can stain the teeth over time. Dark colored foods like blueberries or red wine also have pigments that can get lodged in the tiny ridges on the enamel of the tooth. Over the years, these pigments can cause unsightly yellowish stains on the teeth.

Tobacco: Cigarette smoke contains nicotine and tar which when exposed to oxygen turn yellow over time.

Medications: Certain medications when used continuously, such as blood pressure pills or antidepressants, can cause stains.

Teeth whitening at Smile Dental Practice

At Smile Dental Practice, our team of dental professionals have helped hundreds of patients restore bright and white teeth with some of the most effective in-office teeth whitening Glendale has to offer. During the initial consultation, We will review the condition of your teeth and gums and prescribe the proper treatment procedure. We will also advise on the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve the best results. This depends on the severity and the extent of the stains.

The actual teeth whitening procedure could take between 60 to 90 minutes. The dentist will apply a substance that covers and protects the gums around the teeth. Then, the whitening agent will be placed on the teeth. Once the optimum shade has been reached (or the maximum time has passed), the teeth will be rinsed. Once your teeth whitening procedure is complete, your teeth will appear brighter and several shades whiter. For some patients, take-home trays are provided to enhance the whiteness of your teeth even more, and to maintain the new color.
