Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking, and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Cosmetic dentistry in Homestead and dental bleaching is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
Cosmetic Dentistry is the science and art of improving your smile. People notice your smile immediately, and a wonderful smile enhances your appearance. Therefore, teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry in Homestead may be the one of the best ways to enhance your beautiful smile. Tooth-whitening works best for people with yellow teeth and is less effective for people with brown teeth. If your teeth are gray or purple, tooth bleaching probably won’t work at all, so it best to consult Dr. Cuckler before having this procedure done. If you are a candidate for teeth bleaching, teeth can generally get three to eight shades brighter and it usually only takes several 30- to 60-minute in-office visits. 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 bleaching can make teeth temporarily sensitive, or be uncomfortable for people who already have sensitive teeth. So once again, always consult with Dr. Cuckler first.
