Do you have embarrassingly discolored teeth? Do you turn green with envy whenever you see those models on toothpaste commercials flashing their perfect smiles? Well, if you do, you might want to try the solution that helped me improve the look of my teeth. Visit your dentist now to learn about laser bleaching.
You see, I am a smoker and I also drink a lot of coffee. Cigarettes and coffee as you might imagine can really stain teeth. After seeing how yellow my teeth have become through the years, I decided it was time to visit the drug store to buy those whitening strips that they say can work wonders for your teeth.
After a few weeks of using whitening strips I was becoming displeased with the rate they were whitening my teeth. I mean, I have been using them for weeks, yet I can hardly notice any difference. I made up my mind that it was time to see the local dentist. In the course of my visit the dentist introduced me to a new treatment for discolored teeth called laser bleaching.
The dentist told me that laser bleaching is a treatment that uses a laser to accelerate the action of the bleach and normally last for an hour. He told me that it is the most effective way of whitening teeth but it may cost me a few hundred dollars.
I figured that since lasers were high tech equipment the treatment should be a bit expensive but since I desperately wanted to get rid of my yellow teeth, I made the appointment. The treatment went well; it wasn’t complicated and was virtually painless. Most importantly, I am now the proud owner of gleaming white teeth.
Then a problem surfaced when I got home after the treatment. I was so careful about protecting my teeth that I found it impossible to eat anything with color in it. I started to drink ice coffee and used a straw to safeguard my teeth. I drank white wine instead of red to avoid staining my teeth. It even came to a point where I wouldn’t eat cherries because they might stain my teeth.
After a few days of diligently shielding my teeth from stains I began to realize that I was going too far. I wasn’t ready to give up coffee and it would probably take colored food several months to stain my teeth as badly as it did before the treatment. I mean, what’s the point of having white teeth if you can’t enjoy life because you have to refrain from eating your favorite food. Anyway I could always repeat the treatment if my teeth became intolerably discolored again.
