What’s the Benefit of Whitening Services at Paradigm?
We all want a pearly white smile. Did you know having a grin you’re confident in can boost your self-esteem and actually make you happier?
Stains can be caused by a handful of habits. Consuming foods or beverages with dark or harmful pigments – coffee, red wine, even kombucha – can yellow your teeth, as the color of the substance works its way into the ridges and cracks of your teeth (remember, teeth are porous, not smooth!).
We know how hard it is to quit some of these staining habits. We get it – we love coffee too!
Many patients turn to whitening toothpastes and whitening strips they can buy at the store and use at home. These products have varying levels of success. Some can temporarily whiten your teeth after extended use, while others actually just dye your teeth using a blue-colored agent.
Because a white smile is so desirable, there are countless products available in stores now that claim they can maximize the brightness of your smile. But the research and results are undeniable: If you want long lasting, amazing results, you need to turn to a professional.
With a whitening treatment at Paradigm, you can erase years of stains in a single session. Then, if maintained well, your fresh smile lasts for years to come! Patients have more options with these treatments than many of our other standard procedures, so you can pick the option that works best for you and your lifestyle. You have the choice to either undergo an in-office procedure, or use the product at home on your own.
In office, we use a stronger whitening agent, which delivers faster and more effective results. If you’re preparing for your wedding, your senior photos, or really any event that requires prolonged attention on your smile, it may be time to upgrade your grin.
It’s important to note that your overall oral health should already be consistently excellent before seeking teeth whitening. The best way to ensure your smile looks good is to practice healthy habits. This means brushing and flossing on a regular basis, and coming in for regular cleanings. Getting a whiter smile may make your teeth look healthier, but whitening can’t fix the oral health problems you already have.
If you are experiencing discoloration, but otherwise have healthy teeth and healthy gums, whitening could be for you.
