If you are someone who has stained or discolored teeth that you are looking to brighten through a whitening treatment in Meriden, Connecticut, you are one of many people who are looking to have whiter teeth! Each year, whitening products make over $1.4 billion in America, and this is before factoring in the costs of professional treatments. The best way to save money and whiten your smile is to avoid indulging in things that are known to discolor or stain your teeth.

This is why you should try to avoid tobacco. If you smoke, use a pipe, or chew, you’re at risk for having discolored teeth. Some beverages can also leave your teeth less white, and they include tea, coffee, and soda. Medications can also be responsible for having yellow teeth at times.

Even if you avoid these things, you can still end up having discolored teeth over time because of aging and genetics. The good news is that there are many options for whitening your smile. The best option is to have a professional teeth whitening treatment, and our team is here to help you do that! After we inspect your mouth, we will customize a whitening treatment with just you in mind.

You could try to save money on this by using an at-home whitening kit. You should know that using these will require a longer wait time for the results you desire. These at home kits can also permanently damage your enamel, and leave your teeth feeling sensitive. Unlike professional treatments, these at-home treatments aren’t created with your needs in mind and can leave you with irritated gums.

If you have any questions or concerns in regards to whitening treatments, please call Cloverleaf Dental Center in Meriden, Connecticut at 203-634-8727. Your friendly dentist, Dr. Sheila Poetti, and his staff are here to address any questions you may have.
