In locations such as southern California, looks are everything and having a bright smile is a top priority. Las Angelas and San Diego Teeth Whitening centers are all over and the procedure has become in high demand.
As a person ages, their teeth naturally become more yellow. It is normal for a younger person’s smile will appear to be brighter than that of an older person’s. Other know causes of tooth discoloration are due to stains from habits such as smoking, drinking red whine, coffee, tea, eating foods like chocolate and spaghetti sauce.
There are many different methods of teeth whitening available to the public. Some are more effective than others. There are numerous products that can be purchased over the counter such as whitening tooth paste, mouth wash, and strips, while other methods need to be prescribed by a dentist.
The products that you purchase over the counter tend not to be as effective as having a dentist whiten your teeth. These products are much cheaper than going to a specialist, but the results are very minimal. The toothpastes have a whitening agent in them but there is minimal contact with your teeth and water and saliva will lessen the impact it will have. The strips are a bit more effective due to the bleach having longer contact with the teeth, but the results are mostly seen on the front teeth leaving the back teeth appearing even more yellow than before.
People that live in places such as San Diego believe it is definitely important to have a white, bright, and beautiful smile. It is first thing for anyone that takes pride in the way they look should be concerned with. A smile is one of the first things that people notice when they meet. It has a big impact on a first impression and how a person is perceived by others.This is why so many choose to have their teeth whitened through their dentist who has access to a more potent bleach that will create more noticeable results. San Diego dentists specialize in whitening procedures due to the increase in demand for it.
Once a whitening procedure is performed it is important to remember that regular dental care is an important factor in maintaining a beautiful smile. Taking the time to properly care for your teeth by brushing, flossing and scheduling regular cleanings with your dentist will help in keeping whiter, healthy teeth.
