Catonsville Dental Care offers teeth whitening services for anyone living in the Baltimore County, MD area, including Halethorpe. If you want a brighter smile, that’s more than achievable with our Day White teeth whitening process. We should also note that white teeth don’t equate to healthy teeth. Everyone wants a beautiful smile, but your dental health matters just as much, actually more than aesthetics. The dental professionals at Catonsville Dental Care can help you out on both of those ends. Today we will explain why our Day White teeth whitening process is so convenient. But first, let’s understand why teeth darken in the first place.
Why Do Teeth Become Discolored?
First, we should dispel the myth that people have perfectly white teeth naturally. As we age, our teeth become darker because enamel wears away over time, exposing the darker dentin behind it. Even if your teeth are relatively healthy, it’s common for enamel to break down over time. However, it’s the extent to which the enamel breaks down that helps you determine if you’re taking care of your teeth properly.
More reasons that teeth stain include the use of particular medications or infection being present (primarily if your teeth are a grayish or bluish color). Diet also plays a significant part in why teeth become discolored. Colored beverages (sodas, teas, coffees) and some fruits even can stain teeth. Then, there are cigarettes. Cigarettes aren’t beneficial to anyone’s health at all. In the short term, they may relieve stress. However, in the long term, they create more worry because of all the health problems they cause. Tooth Discoloration is problematic, but tooth loss is even more concerning.
Facts About the Day White Teeth Whitening Process
- Lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin
- Uses a mild solution of hydrogen peroxide in a custom-fitted tray worn over teeth
- The patient must wear the custom-fitted tray for 30 minutes, twice a day
- The process is safe; hydrogen peroxide is FDA-approved, and dentists know which amount of hydrogen process to use
- Teeth will remain lighter permanently, but touchups once or twice a year don’t hurt.
