Once we reach a certain age, nearly everyone can benefit from teeth whitening to bring the sparkle back to their smiles. If you’re not happy with the look of dull, stained, or discolored teeth, teeth whitening can help you love your smile again.
Dr. Chris Moriarty offers a wealth of cosmetic dental services, but many of our patients are delighted to find that they don’t need complex cosmetic dentistry to achieve their goals. Professional teeth whitening at our Manchester, NH dental office can restore the bright, white, youthful smile you thought you’d lost for good.
What Happened to Your Bright, White Smile?
Dental enamel is extremely hard, but the tooth becomes porous over time, and microscopic holes open in its surface. As time goes by, these spaces attract food debris and pigments from staining foods like coffee, dark tea, red wine, and cola drinks. The result is a dull-looking smile that makes you feel self-conscious enough to want to hide.
Teeth Whitening Revives Dull, Stained Teeth
Just about everyone knows about the benefits of professional teeth whitening, but you really can’t understand the impact it can have until you see the brilliant results for yourself. Considering the ease of teeth whitening and its low price tag, the treatment produces stunning results that can transform your entire smile.
At North End Dental Care, we offer professional-strength Opalescence whitening strips. Unlike store-bought strips that use a less potent product and also tend to slip off of your teeth, professional strips adhere securely and provide more dramatic whitening results.
How to Maintain Your Bright Smile after Whitening
Professional teeth whitening in Manchester, NH can take years off of your smile and restore your confidence in your appearance. Once you’ve achieved the beautiful results, there are steps you can take to maintain them for as long as possible.
- Be diligent with oral hygiene: Nothing can dull a bright smile faster than plaque that sits on your teeth. Brush twice a day and floss once to make sure your teeth are as clean as they can be.
- Schedule routine dental cleanings: Every time you get a dental cleaning, your hygienist removes all the plaque and tartar from your teeth as well as polishing them, which revives the whiteness of your smile.
- Avoid staining foods and drinks: There is a very long list of foods and drinks that are known to stain teeth. Some of them are coffee, dark tea, red wine, cola drinks, tomato sauce, soy sauce, and curries. If you do indulge, sipping on water in between can help rinse away some of the staining pigments.
