Spring brings warmer weather and more daylight hours, which inspires us to do more outdoor activities.
Among those activities are weddings, graduations and many family cookouts. Why not treat yourself to a brighter smile? Having a healthy bright smile gives the confidence we need to laugh out loud and speak without worrying about how our teeth will appear to others. Not to mention the other benefit of looking younger. Teeth darken with age because they absorb color from food and drinks, which is why we associate white teeth with youthfulness.
This is also a great time to swap out that old silver (amalgam) filling and upgrade to a tooth colored filling. Ask your dentist what your options are when it comes to beautifying your smile.
Another whitening aid is to brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes using an electric toothbrush such as Sonicare. Sonicare has proven to effectively remove surface stains and brighten teeth as well help maintain any type of periodontal condition. Avoid puffy swollen gums by flossing every day and most importantly see your dentist on a regular basis for a professional cleaning and exam.
We do not recommend whitening teeth if cavities are present or periodontal disease is untreated. A quick exam will help determine if you are a candidate for teeth whitening.
Our office currently offers three different whitening systems; give us a call to see which whitening systems will work best for your smile.
Spring officially starts March 20th, is your smile ready??
