You don't have to live with a yellowed, dull smile. Refresh your self-confidence with professional teeth whitening from Dr. Cesar Acosta. Dr. Acosta and his staff are passionate about your oral health and also want you to feel good about your smile aesthetics. Many of their patients brighten their teeth with effective professional teeth whitening in Turlock, CA.
It's a fact of life
Our teeth darken, yellow and lose their luster as we age. But honestly, other factors play into a dingy smile--things such as:
- Cigarettes and smokeless tobacco
- Dark foods and beverages (wine, coffee, colas, blueberries, soy sauce)
- Poor oral hygiene
- Some prescription drugs such as antihistamines, blood pressure medications and more
While some store-bought toothpastes and rinses help with light stains, intrinsic discolorations require professional help. That's where Dr. Acosta comes in. He fully evaluates his prospective cosmetic dentistry patients to make sure their teeth and gums are healthy. Then, he recommends treatments which brighten enamel, repair small defects, correct alignment and more. Teeth whitening is one of his most sought-after aesthetic services.
Why is teeth whitening so popular?
In fact, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that professional teeth whitening is by far the most popular aesthetic dentistry service because of its dramatic results and affordable cost. Dr. Acosta offers both in-office and at-home versions. Both use powerful hydrogen peroxide gel which literally lifts staining organic matter out of tooth enamel.
The in-office version takes just about an hour, allowing qualified teens and adults to come into the office, relax during the procedure and leave with a smile that's up to eight shades whiter. If a patient chooses at-home whitening, he or she applies the gel with custom-made acrylic trays, wearing these comfortable appliances for a specified amount of time each day for a week or so. The results are equally dramatic.
Keeping that white smile
Your renewed look will last indefinitely if you:
- Avoid tobacco (that's good for your overall health, too)
- Keep up routine brushing and flossing each day to avoid build-up of plaque and tartar
- Do occasional whitening touch-ups with Dr. Acosta
- Get your semi-annual cleanings at the dental office
- Limit beverages and foods which stain enamel
