Hello Royal Oak! Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most Royal Oak folks notice their teeth dulling as the years go by, but some foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age.
Over-the-counter tooth whitening products like kits, strips, or toothpastes may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly brilliant smile, Dr. Larry Duffield can help!
If you have dental veneers, bonding, or a dental bridge, teeth whitening bleach will not lighten the stains and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Duffield Dentistry, we can recommend new cosmetic dental work, including porcelain veneers or bondings, if these have aged and discolored.
Remember, anything that can stain a white tee shirt can stain teeth.
Fortunately, brushing after meals can keep stains at bay, however with acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing right away can erode enamel, causing thinner teeth as we age.
Royal Oak in-office zoom whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Take-home professional teeth whitening kits are also available at Duffield Dentistry and can produce the best results over time.
