What do most people want to change about their appearance? Is it their body image, hair texture, weight, or something else? According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, it's something else--specifically, tooth color. That's right, adult Americans want brighter, more youthful looking smiles and see them as tremendous personal assets. Could your smile improve? Why not ask your Turlock, CA, dentist, Dr. John Chan, about Sinsational Smiles whitening?
What is Sinsational Smiles?
It's a fast, easy, and effective way to brighten your stained teeth by 2 to 5 shades. Performed at Geer Dental Care in about 20 minutes--yes, 20 minutes--Sinsational Smiles whitening uses proprietary carbamide peroxide gel and a special light. This light activates the peroxide and literally lifts staining material right out of your tooth enamel.
They come from the aging process, wear and tear, some prescriptions medications and, most commonly:
- Chewing tobacco
- Dark drinks such as coffee, tea, and wine
- Dark foods such as blackberries and curry
- Poor oral hygiene habits
How is this staining possible, you ask? Isn't tooth enamel rock hard? Well, your teeth are hard, but also, they are porous--like a network of hard fibers. Organic material catches in between those calcified fibers and stays there. Hence, tooth enamel gradually becomes discolored, yellow, and dull.
Teeth whitening with your Turlock dentist
Dr. Chan will tell you if professional teeth whitening is right for you. You need healthy teeth and gums; so he'll examine your mouth first, and if all is well, he can proceed with the Sinsational Smiles process.
It involves a quick application of the carbamide peroxide gel to all tooth surfaces (even intact crowns and veneers). Then, the special activation light starts the actually whitening reaction. After 20 minutes, the gel is rinsed off, and wow, your smile is bright and white. Plus, unlike other whitening treatments or over-the-counter products, your Sinsational Smile is free of dental and gingival (gum) sensitivity.
You'll want to keep your smile white as long as possible. So, avoid staining foods and beverages as much as possible. Stop all tobacco, and improve your oral hygiene habits (we all should, you know). Finally, see Dr. Chan every six months for your routine oral examination and hygienic cleaning. He'll tell you if and when you need a whitening touch-up.
