In the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, the main character played by Brad Pitt aged backwards, or youthened. Wouldn’t you like to youthen, too? Or at least youthen your smile? Stained, yellowed teeth can make you look much older than you actually are. A white smile can actually youthen you and make you look younger. That’s because your smile was whiter when you were younger. It is the many years of eating and drinking foods and beverages that stain your teeth that have aged your smile. Make an appointment at Mai Dental where we can youthen your smile for you.
At Mai dental we customize your whitening treatment to the shade of your skin and other factors. In other words, we are not a one-white-smile-fits-all dental practice. If your teeth are too white they will not look natural so it is worth the effort to design a treatment that creates the smile you want without it appearing artificial. There are a few things to take into consideration when designing a whitening plan:
- The size, shape, and color of your teeth
- The health and hue of your gingival tissue
- The shape of your face
- Your bone structure
- The tone of your skin
Perhaps the most popular cosmetic dental treatment by far, white teeth come with many advantages. For instance, people with straight, white, aesthetic smiles get more job offers, more dates, and more pay. Just those three reasons alone are worth whitening your teeth. At Mai Dental we offer two whitening options:
Take-Home Whitening Trays: With our take-home whitening kit you can whiten your teeth in the privacy and convenience of your own home. At Mai Dental we use the Day White take-home whitening system which includes custom-fitted whitening trays and professional strength whitening gel. By wearing the gel-filled trays on your teeth for 15 to 30 minutes each day in the comfort of your own home, you can obtain noticeably whiter teeth in just one week. Its unique formula consists of amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) which:
- Protects enamel
- Reduces sensitivity
- Improves luster
In-Office Whitening: With Zoom! whitening we can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades lighter in under an hour. Zoom! whitening is safe and long-lasting.
