Never underestimate the power of a simple cosmetic dentistry treatment such as teeth whitening. It has the transformative ability to change not just the appearance of your smile, but your entire life as well.
At Easley Family Dentistry, we offer the best teeth whitening in Easley, SC—which will yield a beautifully bright, sparkling white smile.
The enamel is the outer coating of your teeth, beneath the enamel is your dentin. The health and color of your dentin will determine the color of your enamel, as it can be seen through it when light reflects off your enamel. The thickness of your enamel determines how much of the dentin’s shade shines through—thin enamel allows more dentin color through, and thicker enamel hides more of the color of the dentin. Your enamel’s thickness and its texture is unique, but mostly dependent upon genetics.
Unfortunately for our teeth’s whiteness, the enamel is completely porous, which means it absorbs and retains stains. While natural staining will occur as a result of age, certain lifestyle and dietary habits will accelerate the rate at which your teeth will stain, for example, smoking cigarettes, chewing tobacco, eating chocolate, and drinking red wine, coffee, and tea will all contribute to staining of the enamel.
Not adhering to high standards of oral hygiene both at home and by visiting our Easley, SC office will also contribute to unhealthy and stained teeth, so it’s important to stay on top of your oral healthcare routine.
Before your professional teeth whitening treatment, your appointment will start with a cleaning to prepare your teeth so that the whitening agent is more effective.
Your delicate gums will be protected with a special solution before the bleach is applied, and we will use a retractor to keep your lips and cheeks from touching your teeth while the bleach is setting. We will apply the bleach and allow it to sit for one hour. After we take the bleach off, you will be stunned by the amazing results, which with proper care, will last for many years.
