Welcome to the Mark A. Miely DDS dental blog, Upper Arlington! I am Doctor Mark Miely. Today’s post focuses on teeth whitening.
Unfortunately our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but I see staining on young patients, as well.
Columbus area residents of all ages want whiter teeth.
To protect from staining, it is important to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.
Tooth whitening products like kits, strips, whitening mouthwashes, and toothpaste can lighten stains slightly, but for a truly stunning smile, Mark A. Miely DDS is your brilliant solution!
If you have existing dental work such as porcelain crowns, dental bonding, or veneers, the whitening process can be trickier, but not impossible. Teeth whitening will not lighten the stains on your restorations and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Mark A. Miely DDS, we can upgrade your dull restorations including veneers, crowns or bondings.
In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Mark A. Miely DDS and can produce marvelous results over time.
