Teeth Whitening in Woodlawn
What are the reasons for teeth whitening? Look in the mirror and you’ll have a much better idea. Fortunately, there is rarely a health implication to stained, discolored, or dull teeth. It’s a cosmetic issue. Fortunately, here at the office of Dr. Marlon A. Goad, you can depend on our teeth whitening in Woodlawn to restore your bright smile.
There are several causes of losing your tooth’s naturally brilliant hue. When you’re young, over-fluoridation may lead to a condition called fluorosis. With age, the whiter enamel on the outside of your teeth wears down slowly and steadily. Beneath it is dentin, a naturally less white tissue. Between those two age-related concerns, it is typical that your habits determine the need for our teeth whitening in Woodlawn. Heading the list is smoking. Wrapped up in that are smokeless methods of taking in tobacco, including the now popular vaping trend. Foods can also play a part. Good examples are curry, soy sauce, berries, and hard candies. And tea, coffee, red wine, and cola are among the beverages that are known culprits for causing loss of tooth whiteness. Some prescription medication will change your tooth color as a side-effect. Tetracycline is one of the most common. It’s natural to feel dissatisfied with your stained, discolored, or dull teeth. Our teeth whitening in Woodlawn can be done in our office, or you can use our convenient take-home version if you prefer. The in-office method produces amazingly fast results. In about an hour or less, you walk out with noticeably whiter teeth. Take-home whitening is more gradual, taking a few days to a couple of weeks. The outcome, though, is just as good.
The positive effects of whitening can last for a year up to several, depending on how you maintain them. Contact our office now and set up an appointment to come in.Woodlawn Gum Disease Woodlawn Root Canal »
