What are the characteristics of an attractive smile? While not every person is born with a perfect smile, qualities such as straightness, cleanliness, or whiteness of teeth may come to mind. Thanks to developments in the field of cosmetic dentistry, people can change the smile they were born with into a smile they love. Teeth whitening from our cosmetic dentist in Newport Beach is one of the easiest and fastest ways to transform your smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry is the science and art of improving your smile. People notice your smile immediately, and a wonderful smile enhances your appearance. Cosmetic dentistry is the best way to improve your smile, whether you have missing or damaged teeth, or your teeth have been discolored or stained. Our cosmetic dentist in Newport Beach offers many different cosmetic dentistry services, ensuring that no matter which procedure(s) your teeth require to restore them back to their beautiful, natural looking state, we will be able to provide that to you. Tooth whitening, for example, can be performed to reduce discoloration and staining, or simply to provide the patient with whiter, brighter teeth. The term “teeth bleaching” can refer to a number of techniques to improve the brightness of the patient’s teeth. Among them are chemical whitening, mild acid whitening, abrasive teeth brightening, and the newest technique, laser teeth whitening. If you are a candidate for teeth whitening, teeth can generally get three to eight shades brighter and it usually only takes several 30- to 60-minute in-office visits to our cosmetic dentist. The bleaching solution is usually much stronger than at-home kits. Also, heat, light, or a combination of the two may be used to speed and intensify the whitening process. You can help maintain the results by flossing and brushing daily. Also, avoid acidic and tannin-rich foods and beverages such as black teas and coffee, white and red wine, sports drinks, carbonated beverages, berries and other strongly-colored foods, as well as certain sauces like soy, tomato, and curries. Tooth whitening can make teeth temporarily sensitive, or be uncomfortable for people who already have sensitive teeth. So once again, always consult with us first.
So whether you wish to improve your smile by merely whitening it, or your teeth require a bit more attention and need to be restored, Dr. Weems will be sure to meet and exceed all your expectations. Your teeth and your smile deserve only the best cosmetic dental treatment.
