What is Teeth Whitening?
It’s not uncommon for teeth to begin to look stained, dull and yellowed over time. Certain foods and drinks along with lifestyle habits can further discolor your teeth. We offer professional at-home treatment that you can benefit from in the comfort of your own bedroom. Custom-fitted trays are worn over the teeth and used in conjunction with a specially-formulated whitening gel.
Why is Teeth Whitening needed?
Your teeth may begin to yellow for a variety of reasons. You might be a smoker or chew tobacco and are noticing your teeth are becoming dull. You may even be a coffee, tea or soda drinker and are finding that your teeth are stained and discolored. Just the act of aging can cause your teeth to begin to dull and yellow with time. You may want to whiten your teeth to remove these stains and create a pearly white smile you can feel confident in showing off.
What makes you a good candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Whitening is best for patients who have natural teeth that are stained and discolored. Even professional whitening will not change the color of restorations like veneers, crowns, bridge work or fillings. If you have severely sensitive teeth or have recently whitened your teeth in the past few months, we may suggest waiting on whitening until the sensitivity has passed. Most patients who want to whiten their teeth can do so easily by visiting our office.
What can you expect with professional Teeth Whitening?
We begin by taking impressions of your teeth and using these molds to create a new set of trays. These trays are custom-fitted to your smile to keep the whitening gel inside and saliva out. This accelerates your results and creates a whiter, healthier-looking smile. We provide you with patented whitening gel that will be used in conjunction with the trays. You’ll need to wear these trays with the gel for a few hours each night. If you run out of gel in the future, just come in and we can provide you with more to be used in the same set of trays.
If you’re ready to transform your smile with professional whitening, call us today and we can schedule you for a consultation appointment.
