I Want Whiter Teeth in 2016! What Can I Do? What you need to know about dental whitening treatments.
If you found yourself not smiling much in 2015, you are not alone. Many people are afraid to smile because of stained or dull, yellow teeth. It seems like all of a sudden, the years of wear and tear have caught up with your teeth. What was once a dazzling smile is now faded. It’s time to take action and get your bright white smile back. It’s time to call Dr. David Carlson, your whitening expert in Wheaton, Illinois.
Dull, yellow teeth are often a result of aging, because as we age, our tooth enamel becomes thinner, allowing us to see the layer underneath. This layer is called dentin, and it is yellow in color. This dentin layer also becomes darker as time goes on, which is why our teeth look darker and more yellow as we grow older.
There are many over-the-counter products promising to give you a white, dazzling smile, but often these products don’t provide the results you need. Many of these same products only remove coffee, tea or smoking stains on the surface of your teeth.
Now you can turn back the hands of time by considering a more permanent whitening treatment. Dr. Carlson is an expert at dental whitening, and he can have you smiling with a set of sparkling white teeth for the New Year.
Dr. Carlson can offer you whitening options including:
- Office whitening treatments- A bleaching gel is placed on the teeth for a specified period of time (usually one hour); the effects of the bleach are enhanced using a special ultraviolet light or laser.
- Home whitening treatments- A custom-made tray is created to fit your teeth, and Dr. Carlson will give you a bleaching gel to place in the tray. You will wear the tray at home for a specified period of time.
If you want the more youthful, vibrant look of white teeth for 2016, don’t hesitate. It’s time to reclaim what the years have done to your teeth. Get back your smile! Contact Dr. David Carlson, your family and cosmetic dentist in Wheaton, Illinois. Do it today!
