What you need to know about smoking and your smile

Does your smile look years older because of smoking? Do you have heavy yellow or brown stains on your teeth because of heavy smokingtobacco use? If so, you can reverse the effects smoking has on your smile, thanks to state-of-the-art dental procedures like teeth whitening treatments and porcelain veneers. Dr. Kathleen Geipe, your Salisbury, Maryland dentist, wants you to know all about smoking and your smile.

You can try over-the-counter whitening treatments, but many of these products only remove surface stains, providing minimal benefit. If you do notice results, chances are the difference won’t be dramatic enough, and the results might only last a few months.

Dr. Geipe offers professional teeth whitening for a more permanent solution. She can whiten your teeth up to eight shades whiter, and the results can last up to five years!

You can choose from two different methods, each with great results. Consider:

  • An in-office whitening treatment, if you want dramatically whiter teeth in a minimal amount of time; the treatment takes about an hour, and is the perfect solution for busy people.
  • A take-home whitening kit, if you want to whiten your teeth privately in the comfort of your home; take-home kits allow you to whiten whenever you want and are the perfect solution for people who want convenience.

If your teeth are badly stained and you want a permanent solution, you should consider porcelain veneers. They can last for many years if properly cared for. They look totally natural because they are made of beautiful, translucent porcelain. They are also stain resistant, thanks to the high-tech materials used.
