Pay Attention to What You Eat After Teeth Whitening Procedures | Snohomish, WA

teeth-whiteningFollowing a teeth whitening procedure, Dr. Ted Haines will advise you to watch what you eat since many types of food and drink can stain your teeth. Consumption of products such as tobacco, soy sauce, soft drinks and wine will eventually stain teeth, thus consumption should be limited or avoided if white teeth are desired. However, there are certain foods and drinks that can actually help you maintain white teeth. For example, firm fruits such as apples, green beans, cauliflower, carrots and celery will scrub your teeth while you chew as well as promote the flow of saliva which protects teeth. Dairy products high in calcium will keep teeth white and the lactic acid in those products will help prevent tooth decay.

Create a beautiful natural smile with Cosmetic Dentistry | Snohomish, WA

Grandparent and daughterCosmetic dentistry can create the bright natural looking smile you deserve. Whether you are interested in a complete smile design, restoring chipped teeth or want to whiten, we can improve your smile. Cosmetic Dentistry is composed of several different types of dental procedures.  Dr. Ted Haines of Snohomish, WA offers some information on the cosmetic procedures he offers.

Porcelain Veneers – Fingernail-thin shells are adhered to the front surface of the tooth. Veneers can fix several aesthetic problems with just one treatment.

Whitening – There are at home whitening kits and in office whitening treatments. At-home bleaching kits use carbamide peroxide solutions to oxidize and bleach your teeth.  In-office bleaching (also called chair side, light-activated or one-hour bleaching) uses hydrogen peroxide gels and a heat or light source; these treatments lighten your teeth by six to eight shades in one to three visits, and sometimes less.

Bonding – With the use of bonding gaps, chips, broken teeth, spots and discoloration can all be repaired with bonding. You can regain your smile and confidence.

Crowns and Bridges – Crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function. A bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

Invisalign – The invisible way to straighten teeth. This is achieved by using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners.

Whatever cosmetic procedure you are interested in, call Dr. Ted Haines and make an appointment to get that beautiful smile you have always dreamed of at (360) 568-8577 or visit our website.
