Today, cosmetic dentistry is more popular than it has ever been before. Mathews Dentistry offers cosmetic dental work to help anyone looking to find the full potential their smile has. Over time, teeth will become stained or discolored from various factors that might be unavoidable for some people.
Reasons for teeth staining or discoloration:
- Coffee/Tea Consumption
- Certain Medications
- Advanced Aging
Nevertheless, non-invasive dental treatment can be used to change the natural color of tooth enamel and is the ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. It is important that people understand teeth whitening is not permanent. Touch-ups will be needed every couple of years, and more often if you smoke or drink coffee or tea.
Most teeth whitening treatments are done by using clear, plastic trays with a whitening solution. Trays will be worn for a couple of weeks anywhere from 30 minutes-overnight. The duration varies depending on how much staining needs to be bleached.
Cosmetic dentistry is becoming more popular every year because people are catching on to what a healthy and beautiful smile can do for their self-confidence!
