At Auburn Hills Family Dentistry, we’re here to help you feel great about your smile. We believe that every patient deserves a proud, confident grin. If you have stained or discolored teeth that have been making you feel self-conscious about your appearance, Dr. Josh Haycock is here for you. With teeth whitening in Dacula, we can restore your smile and your self-confidence.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
There are a few common causes of tooth discoloration. Improper oral hygiene can be a factor. If you do not brush and floss properly, plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth, and staining particles will have more time to hold onto your teeth.
The most common cause of tooth discoloration, though, is related to eating certain foods and drinking certain beverages. Drinks like coffee, wine, tea, and cola are high in “tannins” that can stick to your enamel and stain it over time. The same is true of some foods like tomatoes, blueberries, curry and soy sauce.
Tobacco use is also a very common cause of tooth discoloration. Both smoking and smokeless tobacco products (chewing tobacco, dip, snus, etc.) can cause the buildup of yellow and brown stains on the teeth over time.
Take-Home Vs. In-Office Whitening
We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options at Auburn Hills Family Dentistry.
In-office whitening is typically a better choice if you want fast results. Dr. Haycock will apply a powerful whitening gel directly to your teeth, and excite it with a UV light to enhance its effects. Then, the gel will be rinsed away, and this process will be repeated a few times. You may be able to whiten your smile up to 5 shades or more in just a single appointment.
For take-home whitening, Dr. Haycock will use special molds to take an impression of your teeth, and have custom whitening trays made that fit over your teeth perfectly. Then, he’ll give you a set of whitening compounds, and instructions on how to whiten your teeth. You’ll be able to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, and still get professional-grade results.
The Benefits Of Teeth Whitening
The biggest benefit of teeth whitening is enhanced self-confidence and self-esteem. Even if you feel good about how you look, a stained or yellowed smile can make you feel self-conscious about doing things like speaking, eating, laughing and smiling around others. But with teeth whitening, you can remove these pesky stains and feel great about how you look once again.
In addition, teeth whitening helps ensure that you’ll maintain good oral hygiene. If your smile looks beautiful and pearl-white, you’re more likely to brush and floss properly to keep it that way, which results in a lower risk of cavities and gum disease.
