Kirkland WA Teeth Whitening - Bellevue WA Teeth Whitening
Dentiste Kirkland, serving Kirkland WA and Bellevue WA, offers the latest in teeth whitening. Everyone loves a bright, white smile but years of chewing, acidic properties in food, and trauma from injury cause millions of micro-cracks in tooth enamel. These cracks gradually fill with debris causing teeth stain. Whitening teeth to remove tooth stains helps you achieve a luminous white smile.
What causes teeth stain?
Age: There is a direct correlation between teeth color and age. Over the years, teeth darken as a result of enamel wear down and stain accumulation. As people get older, tooth stains become more dense which is why teenagers are more likely to experience immediate, dramatic results from teeth whitening compared to people in their forties and fifties.
Consumption habits: Habitual consumption of red wine, coffee, tea, and other rich-colored food and beverages causes considerable tooth stain over the years. Acidic foods such as citrus fruits and vinegar also contribute to teeth stain. Nicotine in cigarettes produce brown-colored deposits that seep into the teeth and cause discoloration.
Trauma to the mouth: Injuries to the mouth can produce sizable cracks in tooth enamel which collect large amounts of debris. Teeth grinding, mostly caused by stress, can result in micro-cracking of tooth enamel.
Professional teeth whitening versus at-home teeth whitening
While over the counter teeth whitening products are cheaper than professional whitening, the results are not nearly as effective. Store bought teeth whitening kits contain bleaching gels with lower concentrations than that of professionally dispensed whiteners. Therefore, whitening teeth at home can take much longer and will not deliver the same results as professional teeth whitening. The high-quality products offered by Dentiste Kirkland can remove deep teeth stains that over the counter teeth whitener simply cannot penetrate. Dr. McKinney and the Dentiste Kirkland staff will help you select the proper concentration level of whitening to meet your own special needs.
