You may notice over time that your teeth become dull, stained or discolored. This can occur as due to a number of different factors, including:
- The natural aging process
- Poor dental hygiene
- Foods and drinks that stain
- Smoking and use of other tobacco products
- The use of certain medications
Fortunately, yellowed and discolored teeth can easily be brightened up with teeth whitening treatments.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a simple, comfortable and highly effective cosmetic dental treatment. A professional whitening treatment can noticeably enhance your smile in a single treatment session, boosting your self-esteem and helping you once again smile with complete confidence. Teeth whitening is available in both take-home and in-office forms for your convenience.
Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?
While you can buy over-the-counter whitening products in your local supermarket, they will never be as effective as a professional whitening treatment. Professional whitening uses a powerful whitening gel applied to the surfaces of your teeth which works to break up stains and discolorations. A professional treatment from our dentists will be faster and more effective than any product you can purchase in the store.
Take-home teeth whitening is a great option for improving your teeth, as it works fairly quickly but also allows you to whitening your smile on the convenience of your own schedule and in the comfort of your own home. When you receive take-home whitening, our dentists will begin by providing you with a whitening tray and gel. The gel will be placed into the tray and you will wear it as directed. Over the course of several weeks, the gel will break up the stains and discoloration on your teeth to brighten and enhance their appearance.
In-office teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most effective cosmetic treatments available. When you receive this type of whitening, our dentists will apply the whitening gel to the surfaces of your teeth and activate it with a special light. The gel will work to break up the stains and discoloration quickly, allowing you to leave our office at the end of your appointment with whiter teeth.
Keeping Your Smile Bright
Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution, and over time your teeth will gradually become dull or discolored once again. However, you can extend the life of your treatment and maintain your smile longer with a few simple steps:
- Brush and floss daily
- Keep your regular dental appointments
- Avoid frequent consumption of foods and drinks that stain
- Use a whitening toothpaste or mouthwash
- Return to our office periodically for additional professional treatments
