How Can I Make My Smile Look Better? How to renew your smile with a whitening treatment.

When you smile, people stare at you. You begin to feel self-conscious because your teeth are yellow and stained from all of the coffee you drink. You want to do something about it, but you’re not sure what treatment might be best for you. It’s time to call the professionals Teeth Whiteningat Kahala Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Honolulu, Hawaii. They can tell you how to renew your smile with dental whitening treatments.

Your teeth can become faded and yellow for a number of reasons, but the main reason is aging. As the years go by, your tooth enamel thins and becomes more transparent, allowing you to see through to the layer underneath, called dentin. Dentin is normally yellow in color, but as you age, it becomes darker. This is why your teeth will appear darker and more yellow as you get older.

Whitening products you can buy in the store including toothpastes, mouth rinses and whitening strips typically remove only surface stains, and the effect doesn’t last very long.

The professionals at Kahala Cosmetic and Family Dentistry have a more permanent solution to renew your smile. A professional dental whitening treatment may be just what you need to bring back your dazzling smile.

In addition to age-related discoloration, professional whitening treatments can help to fix minor cosmetic problems such as staining from:

  • Smoking
  • Drinking coffee or tea
  • Drinking red wine
  • Eating highly pigmented foods like berries

Whitening treatments available at Kahala Cosmetic and Family Dentistry include both in-office and take-home treatments. For in-office whitening, a bleaching gel is applied to your teeth and then treated with a high-tech light system. For take-home treatments, you will receive a custom-made tray designed just for you, and bleaching gel which you place in the tray and wear for short periods when it’s convenient for you.

If you want to explore dental whitening treatments and see what they can do to renew and enhance the beauty of your smile, call the experts at Kahala Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Honolulu, Hawaii. They are here to help you get the smile you deserve. Call today and be brighter tomorrow!
