Teeth Whitening Services at Mouth Carolina Dentistry in Charleston, SC
A dull, discolored smile can, in its entirety, have a negative impact on an otherwise beautiful face. Though you may feel good about your general appearance, the look of your smile may cause you distress, even embarrassment. Research has allowed us to gain a better understanding of the importance of aesthetics. In one poll, employers reported responding favorably to applicants with attractive smiles. These applicants, it turns out, were able to procure higher salaries, and found themselves facing more job offers than those whose smiles were not attractive.
Your smile is more than a feature; it is a way to communicate both with and without words. Your smile tells a story, indicating to others how friendly you are, how honest you are, how popular, successful, sincere, and healthy you are . . . or not.
At Mouth Carolina, we offer teeth whitening either as a comprehensive procedure or even as a limited treatment; whichever you prefer.
Teeth whitening services have changed a great deal since they first emerged in the office of your local dentist. Though it is possible to have your teeth whitened in the office or at home, using convenient commercial products, the originally designed professional home whitening program remains most effective.
Home teeth whitening services from your dentist include custom-fitted whitening trays and professional-grade whitening solution. The benefit of custom-fitted trays is a fit that keeps bleach solution against the teeth, where it can be most effective. Commercial strips tend to slide around on teeth and allow whitening solution to leak onto gum tissue. For this reason, such products cannot contain higher concentrations of bleaching solution and, hence, do not produce the same beautiful results as professional teeth whitening.
There are a number of reasons why our teeth become stained. At the core of this problem are tiny pores in enamel that allow microscopic particles to seep in. Over time, molecules from colored foods like tea, coffee, red wine, dark berries, and soda collect inside of enamel and cause the yellowing of the smile. Because stain molecules reside inside of enamel, brushing and flossing are only minimally effective at reducing their appearance.
