“I have liked Stacey since we were little kids, and I mean little,” Steve said. “Remember being in like third grade, when the teachers make you give Valentine’s cards to each other? I’ve still got the one Stacey gave me. She drew my name in a heart. I figured that had to mean something!”
Steve held back from asking Stacey on a date, but he really doesn’t want to. “It’s just my teeth,” he said. “They’re so yellow and gross. I try brushing them like six times a day, but they’re not getting any better. And I know how much a good smile matters to Stacey. I’ve heard her comment about other guys’ teeth. I don’t want her grossed out by mine.”
There’s hope for young romantics like Steve. Your Quincy dentist offers a full range of cosmetic dentistry services, including tooth whitening. When you have a dentist whiten your teeth, the results are faster and far more satisfying than what you can achieve using a whitening toothpaste – even brushing six times a day!
Yellow teeth can be due to smoking, poor brushing habits, food choices and more. There’s also a possible genetic component. One way your Quincy dentist can whiten your teeth is with a professional whitening solution that’s brushed directly onto your teeth. This treatment must be professionally applied, as it’s an intense solution that’s not meant to come into contact with your gums, tongue, or other soft tissues. After a relatively short period of time – think a half hour to forty-five minutes – the solution is rinsed away and you’ll have a whiter, brighter smile.
A great smile doesn’t guarantee the girl of your dreams will want to go out with you. But it can’t hurt and the boost of confidence that comes with a bright white smile is fantastic.
