Dental crowns can help strengthen a damaged tooth, but the crown installation process will vary by person.Read More
As part of a multi-billion dollar industry, the manufacturers of tooth-whitening products are quick to release new items. But many of these products may not be effective. Some especially faddish options, like charcoal scrubs, could actually do more damage than good, as their abrasive nature strips the white, pearly enamel from your teeth. Similarly, other treatments may increase tooth or gum sensitivity, or may just be a waste of your hard-earned money.
The only way to know that your treatment is effective, safe, and long-lasting is to schedule a professional cleaning with the expert team at R. Asher Henegar, D.D.S., P.A. Our clinically proven techniques penetrate below the surface of your teeth to produce deep, long-term brightening and improve dental health. So, contact us today to explore your options with Dr. Asher Henegar in Colorado Springs, CO.
We know that you want to indulge sometimes and not constantly worry about staining your teeth. But, as we age, it’s inevitable that they gradually become yellower than we’d like. Some discoloring agents are impossible to avoid – coffee and tea are widely known to cause discoloration. But good luck going about your day without that cup (or several cups) of morning brew.
Additionally, acidic but otherwise healthy treats, such as berries and tomato-based foods, can cause discoloration. And spices with intensely hued pigments can also rob your teeth of their natural whiteness.
Sugary consumables, such as sodas and candy, can also contribute to the de-whitening process. Not only do acids wear away at your teeth’ luminescent enamel, the sugar content also feeds dental bacteria. And these well-fed bacteria metabolize sugars into acids of their own, which contribute to the ongoing cycle of enamel erosion. Other than food choices, certain medications and lifestyle factors, including tobacco use, can cause an unseemly yellowing.
We’re excited to offer our Colorado Springs, CO patients a variety of professional cleaning and whitening options that can undo some of these unaesthetic effects. And we’ll personalize your treatment plan just for you, based on your needs and dental status. Generally, treatment will involve a professional-grade whitening solution or gel. It’s used with a dental lighting system because light energy provides a potent synergistic effect that increases the whitener’s stain-removing abilities. As a result, you’ll leave our office with a brilliant smile that’s up to several shades lighter than when you arrived.
And, best yet, our whitening procedures don’t cause pain or discomfort. So, you really have no reason to hesitate, or feel anxious, about this potentially life-transforming procedure. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to flash a white smile with no worries or apprehensions?
The smile of your dreams can be a quick and easy reality. All you have to do is contact our expert team at R. Asher Henegar, D.D.S., P.A.
