Most of us start out with sparkling white teeth, thanks to their porcelain-like enamel surface. Composed of microscopic crystalline rods, tooth enamel is designed to protect the teeth from the effects of chewing, gnashing, trauma and acids caused by sugar and other foods. But over the years enamel is worn down, becoming more transparent and permitting the yellow color of dentin – the tooth’s core material – to show through.
Some foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, wine or certain vegetables, tobacco use, poor dental hygiene, illness, some medications and advancing age can all contribute to noticeable tooth discoloration. By making some minor lifestyle changes you may be able to prevent this. For instance, If you’re a smoker or a regular coffee drinker you may consider cutting back on caffeine or tobacco- or quitting altogether. Getting regular dental cleanings by a trained dental professional will also remove surface staining and plaque from accumulating in your teeth and gums dulling your pearly whites.
However, for a more drastic, noticeable and quick improvement, an in-office teeth whitening procedure may give you the results you’re looking for.
At DentAlign Studio, Dr Scopu uses the latest state of the art teeth whitening procedure with the EZlase™ System. This procedure is one of the most advanced teeth whitening systems available to dental patients.
Ezlase™ is an advanced laser technology developed by BIOLASE Technology, the leader in dental lasers for over 20 years. EZLase™ Laser Teeth Whitening is one of the most advanced teeth whitening systems available today.
Laser teeth whitening is safer, longer lasting, and can whiten teeth that are severely discolored. This treatment works for patients with difficult to whiten teeth, stained teeth and the most challenging shades to treat: grey and brown. This laser whitening procedure takes less than half the time of other in-office methods and unlike other whitening systems, it does not use UV lights.
