San Francisco, CA – It’s no secret that a whiter, brighter smile is more appealing than a dull, yellow one. But a recent study by Oral B found that a white smile might even make you look younger – by up to five years. And that’s almost the same as a facelift, as similar studies have shown the average person undergoing a facelift looks 4.6 years younger following the procedure.
Imagine, taking years off your appearance with a visit to your cosmetic dentist.
“Teeth whitening not only make us look younger, but several surveys indicate they may also may also improve our appearance, and lead others to believe we are healthier, wealthier and more successful,” says Dr. Greg Larson. “And San Francisco tooth whitening is easy, and one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures there is.”
Tooth discoloration is the most common complaint dentists hear from their patients. While there are a number of whitening toothpastes, gels and strips on the market today, nothing can compare to the ease and results of professional whitening.
Tooth whitening in Dr. Larson’s office offers dramatic and immediately noticeable results, in a quick, painless procedure. As long as you have healthy teeth and gums, you’re a good candidate for whitening.
Dr. Larson offers the best in whitening treatments, using both Zoom! and Kör deep whitening systems. These treatments can whiten your smile by up to 10 shades. And it’s never been easier to get whiter teeth.
First, Dr. Larson will shield your lips and gums for protection, and then apply the whitening gel to your teeth. A laser then activates the gel to break up and remove those tough stains that have discolored your teeth. This process is repeated a few times, until we’ve reached your optimal brightness. Then, a fluoride treatment will ensure your teeth stay protected.
We can quickly and easily brighten your teeth, but there are a few things you can do to ensure your teeth remain pearly white.
1. Brush the right way. Only use a soft bristle brush, and don’t brush too hard. This can strip away the protective enamel, leaving your teeth more susceptible to staining. We also recommend using an electric toothbrush, which can more effectively remove tough stains.
2. Use a whitening toothpaste. Dr. Larson can recommend which he believes to be the best, but these toothpastes are effective at removing stains, while being gentle on the enamel.
3. Avoid food and drink that can stain your teeth. Coffee, tea, red wine and soda can all stain your teeth, so avoid drinking them, or drink through a straw to avoid as much contact with your teeth as possible. Likewise, avoid darkly colored, sticky foods that can adhere to your teeth and stain them.
4. Drink plenty of water. Water can work to rinse away any particles leftover from eating and drinking that could otherwise be left to stain your teeth. It can also help to chew sugarless gum, as this will help produce more saliva, which can be effective in washing away these particles, too.
If you’re ready to take years off your appearance and greet the world with a bright white smile, schedule a consultation with Dr. Larson today.
