If you have looked in the mirror lately, and thought that maybe your smile could be a little brighter, let’s talk. Dr. Mark T. Morgan and his team at Pipestone Dental Center in Pipestone, Minnesota would love to help.
There are any number of things that can cause your smile to dim. Colorful foods, coffee and tea can darken your smile. If you use tobacco, the tar and nicotine can affect the color of your teeth. As we get older, the layer of enamel on our teeth starts to get thinner. As the enamel thins, the dentin below starts to show through. Some prescription medications can also discolor your teeth.
You should talk with your dentist before you decide to whiten your teeth. Your dentist will need to know your eating, and other habits, and what medications you are taking. If you want to use a whitening kit that you purchase over the counter, let your dentist know what brand you are purchasing, so that he can let you know if there are any side-effects, or if it is a brand that is right for you. Remember that Dr. Mark T. Morgan offers whitening treatments in the office, and that those treatments are safe, and effective.
If your smile could use a little extra help, you should contact us for an appointment at 507-825-5403. We look forward to helping you have a brighter, whiter, healthier smile
