If you purchased a tube of toothpaste that promised you a whiter smile, or picked up a whitening kit from your local grocery store, you may have hoped for more results than you actually saw. Does this mean you have no chance to make real improvements to the color of your smile? Your Shrewsbury, MA dentist can provide you with more notable results by providing you with a professional whitening treatment. Through a combination of an in-office treatment, and a special whitening kit you take home, big improvements are possible. The professional whitening agents your dentist provides you can improve the color of your enamel, and even oxidize your dentin, to make remarkable changes.
Relying On Bigger Changes Provided By Professional Whitening Agents
Professional whitening agents can remove stains that can be left behind when you try to improve your smile with store-bought whitening products. The products you can pick up from your local store can help with stains that are on the surface of your teeth. Unfortunately, many staining particles can reside below the surface of your enamel, and continue to hurt the way you look. With a professional whitening procedure, you can remove those stubborn particles. The oxidizing of your dentin, the material below your enamel, will also contribute to your overall improvement.
What Your Dentist Can Do If Your Smile Is Affected By Intrinsic Discoloration
Intrinsic discoloration is not caused by stains from foods, drinks, or tobacco products. You may have intrinsic discoloration because of a dental injury, or because of childhood issues with fluorosis. Certain medications can lead to a change in your tooth color, too. When this is an issue, your dentist can talk to you about alternative cosmetic treatments that can help with your appearance. While a whitening treatment may be less beneficial for you, porcelain veneers can hide discoloration, while making other positive changes to the shape and condition of teeth.
