Most of us aren’t happy with some aspect of our appearance. For some it is our weight, for others it is facial features. When a group of American adults were recently polled, over forty percent reported being less than satisfied with their smiles, most specifically with their teeth. Many are displeased that they never had the ability to get braces as an adolescent, while others wish that there was a way to brighten their yellow or discolored enamel. Now there is, Dr. Finley can restore and renew your teeth with an easy, painless visit!
Why Are My Teeth Dark or Discolored?
There are a variety of factors which can lead to tooth discoloration. Most frequently, daily routine activities such as drinking coffee or red wine are big contributors. Tobacco use is one of the most common offenders as well. The good news is, the team at Finley Dentistry uses professional, state of the art whitening treatments to reverse the effects of dark spots, browning or yellowing.
Additionally, many times darkening can be a sign of tooth decay or even root canal damage. By visiting the dentist, a comprehensive exam will be performed and any underlying issues will be diagnosed and treated.
Can’t I Just Whiten At Home?
The answer is yes. At home whitening treatments are always an option, some are reported to be more effective than others. However, at home whitening treatments are primarily bleach based. Bleach is a great ingredient to attack the external enamel stains, but cannot always treat the deeper damage. Professional whitening treatments at Dr. Finley’s office can give you a whiter smile, with safer ingredients and dosages.
