Help Your Smile Recover from Your Coffee Habit

What you need to know about teeth whitening treatments

If you have a coffee habit, chances are you now have teeth that are dull and dark, just like your coffee. Don’t worry, you don’t have to give teeth whiteningup your coffee to have a nice white smile. It’s time to think about a professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening treatments are now a state-of-the-art cosmetic dental procedure designed to give you the beautiful smile you deserve. Dr. Richard Oppenlander in Portage, Michigan wants to help your smile recover from your coffee habit.

Coffee is just one of the things that can stain your teeth. Red wine, tea and foods with a dark pigment, like berries, can also put their mark on your teeth. If you are a smoker, you already know what tobacco stains can do to make your teeth look darker.

Dr. Oppenlander wants you to know the main reason why your teeth look darker and more yellow. It’s because of normal aging. As you get older, your tooth enamel becomes thinner, and you can see through to the dentin underneath, which is yellow. This layer of dentin changes as you get older too. It becomes darker. The whole effect is that your teeth will look darker and more yellow as you age.

There is help for coffee-stained, aging teeth! Dr. Oppenlander offers two solutions to take years and stains off of your smile. Consider:

An in-office teeth whitening treatment, which uses a professional strength whitening solution applied to your teeth. Dr. Oppenlander uses a high-tech whitening light system to enhance the solution. The result is a smile that can be up to 8 shades whiter. The entire treatment takes about an hour which makes it the perfect solution for busy people who want to look great!

An at-home teeth whitening treatment, using custom-made bleaching trays and professional strength bleaching gel; you load the bleaching gel into the trays and wear them at your convenience until your teeth are as white as you want. At-home whitening is perfect for people who want convenience and privacy.

If you want to help your smile recover from your coffee habit, you owe it to yourself to consider a professional whitening treatment. It’s the go-to solution to have a beautiful white smile, quickly and conveniently. Why wait? Call Dr. Richard Oppenlander in Portage, Michigan today and be on your way to a great smile!
