If you have been wanting a brighter smile to enhance your smile, we can help! A healthy smile starts with a healthy foundation, and maintaining healthy tooth enamel and gums means brushing and flossing daily to keep your smile looking its best. Along with routine professional dental cleanings, your smile is off to a good start. Even so, there are things you can do to whiten your smile.
At the dental office of Dr. Larry Leonakis located in Carson City, Nevada, one of our most popular requests for treatment for a more appealing smile is teeth whitening. In as little as one treatment, teeth whitening can brighten your smile. Our professional kits use a powerful, safe whitening gel applied to tooth enamel. This gel lightens stains, discoloration, and any yellowing on the teeth. Do you know what might be dulling your pearly whites?
1- Food and beverages: berries, certain candies, coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.
2- Tobacco use: tar and nicotine can darken teeth.
3- Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can alter tooth enamel.
4- Age: as enamel thins out over time, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.
5- Trauma: injury can darken tooth color because the tooth creates more dentin in response to an injury.
Our caring team is pleased to provide teeth whitening kits for our patients in Carson City, Nevada. Please give us a call today at 775-882-0635 to find out how Dr. Larry Leonakis can help you get the smile you have been wanting!
