Premier Dentistry for Denver, Cherry Creek & Englewood, CO

Denver teeth whiteningEveryone wants a bright, white smile that reflects youth, health and vitality. Teeth whitening treatments are a great way to achieve sparkling results. But are there other ways you can obtain dazzling pearly whites?

Eating healthy can help you enhance your already beautiful smile. There are certain fruits, veggies and other health foods that can naturally remove stains from your teeth, ultimately whitening your tooth enamel over time, including:

  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Celery
  • Oranges
  • Pineapples
  • Yogurt
  • Milk
  • Cheese

These foods help whiten your teeth is several different ways, such as:

  • Fiber-rich foods rub against the surface of your teeth, acting like a toothbrush getting rid of stains.
  • Tart foods increase saliva production, which in turn acts as a natural teeth-cleaning agent.
  • Dairy products protect your teeth against tooth decay.

However, healthy foods alone will not deliver the same results as in-office teeth whitening treatments. Fortunately, the dentists at DeWitt Dental Associates offer various whitening treatments that can help deliver a smile that is up to eight shades whiter with just one procedure. Treatment options include:

  • Zoom! Laser Teeth Whitening
  • Opalescence® Teeth Whitening at Home

To fully determine which teeth whitening treatment is right for you, and how you can properly maintain your bright, white smile, our dentists will meet with you in person to discuss your oral healthcare goals and needs. Together, we will formulate your personalized treatment plan to help you get the smile of your dreams.
