Learn What to Do if You Are Tired of Having Yellowed or Discolored Teeth

Most people would prefer to have pearly white teeth over yellowed or otherwise discolored teeth. However, not everyone knows how to get white teeth and keep them that way. The truth is that your teeth can become yellowed or discolored for many reasons, including poor health, poor oral health care, or genetics. Keep reading to learn what your options are, and then contact California Dental Group at (800) 407-0161 to make an appointment for a dental cleaning and exam.

Your Options in Drugstore Teeth Whitening Products

There are literally hundreds of over-the-counter teeth whitening options that have been developed in the past few decades. From gels to trays, from bleaches to strips, and even UV lights you can do at home, it might seem that there has to be an answer you can do at home. After all, they are less expensive than professional teeth whitening, right?

It is true that in most cases, they cost less. However, it is also true that they do not work as quickly, do not work as well, and do not last as long. While some are high-quality and will eventually help somewhat, others are downright damaging to your teeth.

Your Options in Professional Teeth Whitening

Your other main option is professional teeth whitening at your dentist’s office. For nearly all people, this is going to yield the best results and therefore the best value – for several reasons. First, when your dentist applies professional-grade teeth whitening products, they are highly trained. They know what to do, and they know which agents are going to work best for your particular needs.

Second, we use such strong (yet safe) products that you will see immediate results when you leave our office. Compare this to over-the-counter products that can take as much as six months to notice even a minor difference – and those results only last as long as you continue the application. Our application is done once and then does not need to be reapplied for as long as a year.

In some cases, teeth whitening might not even be the best option. For example, veneers can cover up not just the color of your teeth but the shape. They can re-shape your teeth, fill in gaps, get rid of flaws, and offer long-term results.

If you are ready to find out what your best option would be, then your next step is to contact California Dental Group at (800) 407-0161 to request a consultation. We are here to help you get your teeth in great shape and looking lovely.
