I have always been an avid hockey player, and my love took a bad turn one day when I got struck in the mouth with the puck. It was a painful moment that left me with two teeth knocked out of my mouth. Had I taken the right steps after the accident, I could have possibly saved the teeth, but I did not know I had that option at the time. Thankfully, I worked up the courage to visit a dentist and ask what my options for teeth-replacement were. I was worried I would would have to live the rest of my life without smiling, but I was ecstatic to learn that I was the perfect candidate for dental implants. I created this blog to help others realize that there are so many options to replace missing teeth today that no one has to "just live with" an imperfect smile!

Can everyone's teeth be whitened?
If a person's teeth are stained or discolored from foods, time or other natural occurrences then they should be able to be whitened. However, some people have discolored teeth for other reasons like thin enamel or genetics. In these cases, whiteners won't work to whiten teeth and other steps will need to be taken, such as having veneers put in.
What are some of the reasons why it's better to get your teeth whitened at the dentist's office?
Most dentist's offices have different methods of teeth whitening available. These can include treatments like bleaching and laser whitening. When you go to the dentist, they will give you an exam and determine which form of whitening treatment that they have to offer would work out the best for your teeth and your situation. They know exactly how to do the treatments and they can custom tailor the treatment so you get the absolute best results possible. Since their whiteners are professional grade, you can also reap the benefit of getting results in a much, much faster period of time than what you can expect with store bought ones.Share
