How long has it been since you looked in the mirror and felt satisfied with how your teeth look? If it’s been a while, it may be time to explore cosmetic dentistry options with Dr. R.J. Carpenter at his Sun Prairie, WI, dental practice. After all, rejuvenating your smile could be as simple as whitening your teeth a few shades!
Common Causes of Teeth Staining
Of all the cosmetic issues that patients report, tooth discoloration is consistently near the top of the list. According to a survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the demand for teeth bleaching is robust. These are some of the most common reasons why your teeth get stained:
- Consuming darkly pigmented foods and beverages on a daily basis.
- Lack of regular brushing or using a poor quality toothpaste.
- Enamel erosion, which makes the surfaces of the teeth porous and more vulnerable to stain penetration.
Why Professional Teeth Bleaching?
Simply put, the whitening products that you can find in a store cannot produce similar results to what you’ll experience from our Sun Prairie, WI, office. When you entrust your smile to Dr. Carpenter, your results will not only be a number of shades brighter compared to over-the-counter products, but they will also be delivered at a fraction of the time!
How Your Teeth Are Whitened
The soft tissues of your mouth are protected with the help of a tool called a retractor. The bleaching agent is carefully applied by your dentist and left on the teeth for the duration of the appointment. You’ll only need to sit in the dentist’s chair for a little over an hour to achieve results that can improve the look of your teeth for years.
