Hello San Diego! Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most folks notice their teeth dulling as the years go by, but some foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age.
OTC tooth whitening products like kits, strips, or toothpastes may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly brilliant smile Dr. Marcos Ortega can help!
If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening bleach will not lighten the stains and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Marcos Ortega DDS, we can recommend new dental work, including porcelain veneers or bondings, if these have aged and discolored.
Remember, anything that can stain a white tee shirt can stain teeth.
Fortunately, brushing after meals can keep stains at bay, however with acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing right away can erode enamel, causing thinner teeth as we age.
San Diego 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 Marcos Ortega DDS and can produce the best results over time.
