Whether we like it or not, people make judgments and assumptions about us just by looking at our teeth. Studies have shown that even if your teeth and gums are healthy, the color of your teeth can affect your professional and social life in a number of ways. Investing in a whiter smile is one of the most affordable and least invasive cosmetic improvements that anyone can make to boost their appearance. Drs. Richard and Maria Linden offer both in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening treatments in Naples, FL, to help you look and feel your best in every area of your life.
Professional Teeth Whitening in Naples, FL
Although brushing and flossing are mandatory for preventing tooth decay and gum disease, unfortunately brushing alone is not enough to keep your teeth as white as possible. Over time, what we eat and drink cause the teeth to become dull and stained. The most common culprits include:
- Red wine
- Coffee and tea
- Dark berries
The normal aging process also cause the enamel layer that protects the surface of the teeth to thin and erode over time, making staining and discoloration more likely as we get older. If you smoke, not only will it stain your teeth, but it can also make future oral health problems more difficult to treat, according to the American Heart Association. Over the counter whitening- toothpaste and other products can help a little, but they are not as strong and won't deliver the same results as whitening treatments performed by a dentist. Drs. Richard and Maria Linden offer two convenient methods for getting the smile you want - in-office and at-home whitening. The in-office procedure generally takes about an hour. The at-home process is spaced out over a few weeks. Both are designed to drastically brighten and whiten unattractive stains and discolorations.
