Staying on top of regular brushing and flossing is important to keep the outside of your teeth clean. Doing so will also keep the parts under the crown and below the gums healthy. You may think that doing so will also ensure that you will have a whiter smile—but that’s not always the case.
Luckily, with teeth whitening from Mountain Springs Dental, you can enjoy your brightest smile yet, no matter how stained or discolored your teeth are.
Why Teeth Whitening?
Having bright white teeth depends on more than just your ability to stay on top of regular, healthy oral cleaning habits. What you eat, your genetics, and even your age also play a huge role in how white your teeth are.
Your teeth are porous, meaning they’re full of little holes. These holes take in substances that you eat or drink. If you consume something that has a tendency to dye teeth, you’ll find that your teeth remain a shade or two darker no matter how good you are at brushing and flossing.
There are several different food and drink items that are especially staining to teeth, including the following:
- Fruit Juice.
- Soy Sauce.
- Smoking and Tobacco Products.
Your teeth also yellow as you age. Our teeth whitening treatments at Mountain Springs Dental are designed to combat all these kinds of staining and provide you with the whiter smile you’ve always wanted.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Professional teeth whitening at Mountain Springs Dental in Ogden, Utah, is a quick procedure with long-lasting results. The whitening agent in the teeth whitening substance penetrates past the outer layer of enamel to get at the discolored molecules in the center of your teeth.
Oxygen molecules from the whitening agent react with the discolored molecules in your teeth, causing the bonds on those molecules to break. The results are teeth with fewer discolored molecules—making them whiter in appearance.
All this is done in one short appointment, and it can leave your teeth whiter and brighter for months to years!
