We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Now you can say goodbye to yellow, dull, dingy, or discolored teeth in less than an hour. Teeth whitening is one of the most affordable, convenient, and fastest methods of cosmetic dentistry. It helps remove years of stains and discoloration from your teeth essentially in minutes. Imagine brightening your smile over your lunch break!
Our office in Tamarac can help you achieve the radiant smile you want in a way that fits your lifestyle, your schedule, and your budget. Simply relax in our office while you whiten your teeth during one visit, letting our friendly staff and the whitening treatment work their magic.
You’re sure to see dramatic results, especially after a teeth cleaning. A professional cleaning provides a blank canvas for your new smile. It removes any bacteria and food particles that can interfere with the whitening treatment or contribute to tooth stains.
Why Whiten Your Teeth?
Even if you brush and floss daily and are generally diligent about your dental hygiene, you still might notice your teeth becoming yellow or discolored over time. The color of your teeth actually is a combination of light reflected off the enamel—the tooth’s hard outer layer—and the color of the dentin, or middle layer, underneath the enamel.
Our genetic makeup determines how thick or smooth our tooth enamel is. If you have thin enamel, your dentin will show through more strongly.
Yet as we age, all tooth enamel tends to become thinner while the dentin darkens, affecting your overall tooth color. Because tooth enamel is porous, what we eat and drink, among other factors, also can discolor tooth enamel.
The most common reasons for tooth stains and discoloration include:
- Certain beverages such as coffee, tea, red wines, and colas
- Tobacco products including cigarettes and chewing tobacco
- Certain medical treatments and medications
- Getting older
- Poor hygiene and cavities
- Tooth trauma / mouth accidents
Why Should I Whiten My Teeth Before Getting Crowns or Bridges?
Dental work such as crowns and bridges are meant to blend in with your natural teeth. But if your natural teeth are dingy or discolored, the dentist will match the crown or bridge to that color. Over time, as the crown or bridge resists staining, it might look brighter than your natural teeth. What’s more, cosmetic and restorative dental work resists tooth whitening. So whitening your natural teeth after such dental work tends to make crowns, bridges, veneers and dentures more obvious. Whitening beforehand ensures your smile stays uniformly bright.
