Hamby Family Dental Center Can Brighten Your Smile
Our Teeth Whitening Procedure
Unfortunately, as we age or consume certain products, our teeth sometimes lose their natural gleam. There are several reasons our smile starts to darken, including:
- Worn away enamel, due to aging, caffeine, and tobacco
- Staining particles, like coffee, tea, berries, and soy sauce
- Trauma and injury
- Medication side effects
For stains caused by external factors, such as food or fading enamel, professional teeth whitening can make a big difference in restoring your smile. While there are many “whitening toothpastes” on the market, many of these products contain abrasive substances. They may whiten your teeth for a while, but can also leave lasting damage. Before choosing a toothpaste like this, it’s best to discuss your options with your dentist.
A professional whitening procedure, however, doesn’t merely brighten your smile; it actually changes the color of your teeth. It is the safest and most effective way to bring out your best smile. Our teeth whitening can last as long as five years.
Some stains, often caused by internal darkening from injuries, medications, or flourosis, cannot be solved by teeth whitening procedures. However, our dentists offer other services, such as porcelain veneers and dental bonding, which may help.
If you want a natural, bright smile, call our Fuquay-Varina dentist office. Together, we can create a plan for your unique smile.
