Teeth Whitening: Do It Right

Las Vegas dentist teeth whitening

As the years go by, our teeth naturally lose their luster. Dark colored foods and drinks speed up the process, but even people who avoid coffee, wine and cola are not immune to yellow or gray teeth. Want to brighten up your smile? Have you considered tooth whitening? Teeth whitening at Providence Dental is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to look younger and more attractive.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Though some Providence Dental teeth whitening patients experience a little short-term sensitivity, most experience no pain at all.

There are several different methods for whitening teeth but each uses a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have accumulated in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.

First of all, the strips, mouthwashes and paint-on whiteners use a lower concentration of whitening agent than in-office methods. They rarely remove all of the stains on your enamel. If you have gum disease, cavities, crowns, dental bonding, or porcelain veneers, dentist Steven Do recommends first visiting your dentist for a teeth whitening consultation. You are always better off having teeth whitening performed by a professional. This will protect your existing restorations and ensure the best possible results.

Don’t assume that tooth whitening offered at Las Vegas mall kiosks is risk-free. The industry is largely unregulated and the staff often have little dental training. Do you really want to take chances with your smile?

At Providence Dental, we are currently accepting new patients at our Las Vegas office. My friendly team of skilled dental professionals would love to serve you with family and pediatric dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, oral surgery, or porcelain veneers. You can schedule an appointment by calling 702-984-2547.

All Tooth Stains Are Not Created Equal

Las Vegas Teeth Bleaching Will an of our locally advertised Las Vegas teeth whitening options remove the stains from your teeth?

The effectiveness of teeth bleaching in Providence depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the easiest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.

Unfortunately, even if you avoid these common teeth stainers, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair, wrinkles, and memory lapses, a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for Las Vegas men and women.

Intrinsic tooth stains develop from the inside out. Tooth injury and tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove completely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional tooth whitening available at your NW Las Vegas cosmetic dental office.

If your teeth are stained, whether from coffee, tetracycline, or excessive fluoride, call Providence Dental at 702-984-2547. We have treated many Centennial Hills patients with extreme tooth discoloration.

It is never too late or too early to brighten your smile.

Las Vegas seniors can take years off their appearance by restoring the youthful white smile they once enjoyed. Las Vegas teens and young adults with surface stains can prevent them from becoming intrinsic stains with Providence tooth bleaching.

Speaking of the younger set, did you know that people who drink energy drinks are at risk for many dental problems?
