Studies confirm what many of us already know – that a white set of teeth and a great smile makes people seem more attractive and can lead to increased success at work, in love, and with first impressions.
Researchers from the universities of Leeds and Central Lancashire took pictures of models and then digitally changed the colour of their teeth.
Three shades were used – a yellowish brown, healthy white, and startling white.
The showed the resulting photos to 150 young women and men and requested they rank the models.
As we might expect, yellow teeth were least popular.
And this kind of result is found in study after study, and people with attractive smiles do better with first impressions, job interviews, dating, and even how much pay they are offered when they are hired.
With these kinds of positive results from teeth whitening, Warner Lakes Dental has to ask, “Isn’t it time for you to get your teeth whitened?”
Teeth whitening is a safe, non-invasive and simple process that lightens the shade of your teeth and brightens your dull smile.
At Warner Lakes Dental, we can help chase away discolouration ruining your smile. With teeth whitening options, your teeth can be bright and beautiful again!
Why Do Teeth Stain?
Extrinsic stains are on the surface of the enamel, which is quite easy to stain. Staining can be caused by tea, smoking, chewing tobacco, and drinking coffee.
Dark-coloured foods and beverages, including colas, red wine, dark sauces and fruits including blueberries, grapes, and pomegranates, can also stain teeth.
These foods and drinks contain high levels of chromogens, which both produce pigment and stick to tooth enamel.
Foods and beverages with high acid levels can erode the tooth enamel and make it easier for chromogens to have their adverse effects on teeth. Severe enamel erosion can increase the chance of teeth sensitivity.
Intrinsic stains are inside the tooth. Medications can often cause intrinsic stains. Even drugs we think of as safe, including, Albuterol, antihistamines, and blood pressure medications, can lead to stains.
Excessive fluoride. We often think of fluoride as a friend to teeth, but the yellowing of teeth from too much fluoride (fluorosis), often occur in regions where the drinking water has high levels of natural fluoride.
Interestingly, dental materials can cause also cause stains, particularly silver fillings (amalgam).
Genetics can also affect the shade of teeth. Some people are born with naturally thin enamel, which allows the yellowish colour of your dentin to sneak through. Age can also cause thinning of enamel, which makes your teeth yellower.
Poor health is also implicated in poor teeth colour. High fevers at a young age, severe neonatal jaundice, Sickle Cell Disease, and trauma can lead to yellowing in teeth.
Teeth Whitening at Warner Lakes Dental
We offer two paths to whiter, brighter teeth – Zoom Whitening and Take-Home Whitening.
Zoom Whitening. Zoom whitening gives the most dramatic results possible. In 45 minutes to one hour, your teeth can become up to 8 shades whiter, reversing years of stains from food, drinks, aging, and some kinds of medication.
Zoom Whitening begins with your dentist checking to see if you are a good candidate, then checking the current shade of your teeth to ensure there will be a dramatic difference after your treatment is complete.
Once you’re ready, just sit back as your Warner Lakes Dental dentist performs the whitening:
- Your mouth is prepped for whitening a layer of advanced whitening gel is applied to your teeth.
- To accelerate the whitening process, we shine a special lamp onto your teeth that that accelerates the whitening process.
- This process is repeated times and can be completed in as little as 45 minutes!
- Once you’ve reached your desired brightness, post-treatment gel will be applied to reduce sensitivity and protect enamel.
- You’ll leave the dental chair with an instantly brighter, more confident smile.
If you choose home whitening, you will be sent home with a take-home maintenance kit that helps you maintain your new shade at home.
Home whitening is equally simple and allows you to whiten your teeth at the comforts of your home!
The in-office treatment is:
- Your Warner Lakes Dental dentist takes impressions of your teeth
- These moulds are used to construct custom fitted trays used to hold the whitening gel on your teeth
- Your dentist will provide instructions on how to use the trays
