How you feel about your smile is an important part of your self-esteem. We know you want to look and feel your best, and that’s difficult when you feel self-conscious about your smile. We don’t think anyone should feel reluctant to smile.
That’s why Dr. Rowntree features safe and effective professional whitening treatment. Many of our patients use our take-home whitening kits to prepare for a special event. But you can also use them if you’re just looking for a sparkling white smile.
What Makes Teeth Turn Yellow?
Practicing effective home care by brushing and flossing daily and visiting Dr. Rowntree for regular checkups is essential for optimum dental health. But there are a number of circumstances that can cause a patient’s teeth to yellow even if you’re taking good care of your smile.
Diet is the biggest factor when it comes to the color of your teeth. Many common foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, soda, berries, and grapes will stain your teeth over time. Smoking is another major cause of yellow teeth.
Certain prescription medications and physical trauma can also play a role. Dingy teeth can also occur as a natural part of the aging process. Genetics is another factor in how susceptible you are to discoloration.
Professional Teeth Whitening
If you’re thinking about teeth-whitening, you can give us a call or let us know during one of your regular checkups. It’s important to consult with Dr. Rowntree to find the best approach for you. He can tell you if you have the type of surface stains that respond well to whitening or if another type of treatment would be more effective.
Over-the-counter treatments from your local drugstore can damage your teeth, gums, or dental work. We’ll make sure you get a safe and effective remedy.
Our professional teeth-whitening can give you the bright smile you’ve been dreaming about. Your custom-designed whitening trays protect your smile while the gel clears away the stains.
