How a teeth whitening treatment from your Putnam dentist can enhance your smile

If you have a dull smile, you can improve it. If you have a stained smile, you can change it. If your smile isn’t as dazzling as you’d like it to be, it’s time to consider improving your smile with a professional teeth whitening treatment. Dr. Islam Dehis at Putnam Family Dental in Putnam, CT, wants to help you discover what professional teeth whitening can do for you.

Professional teeth whitening offers benefits that can’t be matched by over-the-counter whitening products. When you choose professional teeth whitening you will experience:

  • Dramatic results; you can whiten your smile up to 8 shades whiter
  • Long-lasting results; your smile can stay white up to 5 years

You may need a professional teeth whitening treatment if you use tobacco products, drink coffee or red wine, or eat highly-pigmented foods like berries. The main reason your smile isn’t as white as it used to be may be due to aging.

Aging creates many changes in your body, one of which is thinner dental enamel. As your dental enamel becomes thinner, you can see through to the layer underneath, called dentin. This dentin layer is yellow in color and gets darker as you age. The result is a darker, more yellow smile as the years go by.

Professional teeth whitening allows you to take back what the years and lifestyle habits have done to your smile. At Putnam Family Dental, you can choose from these effective teeth whitening methods:

  • In-office whitening, which is a great choice for busy people, or if you have a special event coming up; treatment takes about an hour and is done in the office in one appointment.
  • Take-home whitening, which is a great choice if you want to whiten on your own schedule in the privacy of your home; you will receive a kit containing everything you need to whiten your teeth whenever you want.

No matter which professional teeth whitening method you choose, you will be delighted with your whiter and brighter smile. Don’t let stains and yellowing take over your smile. It’s time to improve your smile with a professional teeth whitening treatment. To find out more about what teeth whitening can do for you, call Dr. Dehis at Putnam Family Dental in Putnam, CT.
