When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see beautiful white teeth gleaming back at you, or do you see dull teeth? Did you know that having dull, yellow teeth can age you? Dull teeth can make you look years older than you are. Perhaps that’s because as time goes by, your teeth absorb all kinds of stains from years of use. Your teeth dull with age as well. Do you want pearly-white teeth? Let BayView Dental tell you more about whitening your teeth.
Why Should I Whiten My Teeth?
People like to whiten their teeth for all sorts of reasons. First, you may need to whiten just because your teeth are not getting any younger, and you want to look as young as you feel. Stains definitively build up on your teeth over time. This is true even if you don’t smoke or drink caffeine. For example, you may love berries. If you do, your teeth may be stained from strawberries, blueberries or blackberries. If you whiten your teeth, you are lifting stains caused by food, drink or tobacco from your teeth. Whitening your teeth can make your teeth- and your face- look 10 years younger.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
The way that you whiten teeth changes depending on how much you want to whiten your teeth and how long you have to whiten them. If you want to whiten your teeth one or two shades gradually, you can switch to a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash. This change will lighten your teeth in a few weeks. However, if you want to whiten your teeth more quickly, you can lighten your teeth in two to three weeks. You can use white strips to whiten your teeth a few shades in less than three weeks. With whitening strips, you will need to sit with the strips in your mouth for about an hour each day.
