Teeth Whitening is the Quickest Way to Look Years Younger

The years take their toll. Fortunately, we have access to more options than ever before to protect our youthful appearances. And one of them is available from the comfort of your dentist’s office. 

If your teeth show your age, you have a way to turn back the clock with just one appointment. At our office in Downtown, Los Angeles, Silva A. Arejian, DDS, applies her specialization in cosmetic dentistry to help you bring your smile dreams to life. And our top-tier teeth whitening is an extremely effective way you can make a dramatic smile change in just one visit. 

Aging and your teeth

To understand why whiter teeth make you look younger, it’s helpful to get a feel for how your teeth change through the years. When you’re young, you have a strong, healthy exterior coating of enamel to protect your teeth. This enamel is a bright, luminous white in its natural form.

But it stains easily. Over time, consuming certain substances can cause your formerly white enamel to take on a less-than-bright tinge. Some of the top enamel-staining culprits include:

Whether you can’t imagine starting your day without a cup of joe or you love a good glass of cabernet sauvignon with dinner, you’re taking a toll on your teeth’s brightness. 

And that’s not the only issue facing your teeth over time. On top of that, your enamel can thin and crack as it’s subjected to wear-and-tear. This allows the next layer beneath it — dentin — to show through. The problem? Dentin is yellow. 

All told, time is as cruel a mistress to your teeth as it is to your skin. Fortunately, you can turn back the clock by whitening your teeth. 

Before you head to the drugstore to buy an at-home whitening kit, though, there are a few things you should consider. 

Getting better results with our teeth whitening

To be safe for at-home use, store-bought whitening kits can’t offer the strongest grade of whitening solutions. To get the most noticeable whitening results — and a way to look years younger — you need professional teeth whitening.
