teeth whitening before and afterWelcome to summer! Are you ready for everything that might come your way this season? Every invitation, late night under the stars, and photo op?  If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, the answer may be no — but now is a great time to change that with teeth whitening in Vienna.

Why Teeth Darken over Time

Most adults will come to an age where they realize that their once-pearly whites aren’t so pearly or, well, white anymore. There are a number of factors that can cause the teeth to get darker over time, from a constant coffee drinking habit to smoking, insufficient dental hygiene, and even genetics. No matter what caused you to feel like your smile has lost its luster, though, professional teeth whitening can help in most cases.

How Teeth Whitening Works

During a consultation, your dentist can recommend the type of teeth whitening that is right for you based on your smile goals, budget, and the level of staining or discoloration you have experienced. Most whitening treatments work with a strong gel that is applied to the teeth and either activated under a special light or over time.

Once the teeth whitening treatment is complete, you will be advised not to eat or drink anything that could stain your newly-white teeth. The enamel will be more prone to absorbing the colors of what you eat and drink for approximately 24 hours, so you will want to stay away from items like coffee, red wine, ripe berries, and dark chocolate.

Types of Teeth Whitening

There are two main options in teeth whitening: at-home and in-office. Both can achieve the same results, just at a different pace.

In-office whitening is a great option for anyone who wants to reveal their results at quickly, like in preparation for a big event. Teeth can be whitened by up to 8 shades after just one, one-hour visit to the dentist with this method. At-home whitening, on the other hand, may be a better choice for patients who want to spend less on teeth whitening or are not in a hurry to show off their whiter smile. Because it is performed gradually over the course of about two weeks, an at-home treatment may also be better for patients who are prone to tooth sensitivity.

Teeth whitening is a wonderful way to reveal a more youthful, dazzling smile — and there has never been a better time to achieve that than during the summertime! If you are interested in learning more about your options in professional teeth whitening, get in touch with your Vienna cosmetic dentist this month.
