Most patients who walk through our doors will find that their smiles are not quite as vibrant and white as they were when they were children. While you may feel guilty about your smile’s change in color, we encourage you to recognize that yellowing and darkening is just a fact of life. Whether you suffer from discoloration from wear and tear, drinking or eating very pigmented beverages and foods, or using tobacco products, we offer teeth whitening solutions to dramatically improve the whiteness of your smile. As long as you are looking for options to target extrinsic – or surface – stains, we encourage you to learn more with the following explanations:
Do you prefer to access dental care in our office rather than attempting to administer treatment on your own? If so, you should probably consider in-office teeth whitening to brighten your smile. You should expect to visit us for about one hour to complete treatment. We will place a whitening gel directly over your teeth, so you will not need to wear trays. Rest assured, our team members will protect your surrounding tissues like your lips and gums. By activating the gel with a special light, treatment will brighten your smile by several shades within this single visit. You will enjoy instant results and can rest easy – we carefully choose systems formulated to protect the health of your teeth while reducing the chances of sensitivity.
Some patients prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own homes. If you would prefer this method over an in-office appointment, let us know. When it comes to at-home teeth whitening, you can expect equally stunning results. We will provide you with custom-fitted trays and bleaching gel. Once at home, you will follow the directions we provide you for filling the trays with the whitening gel. You will then wear the trays for approximately two hours each day over the course of one to two weeks. The duration of your treatment will depend on your level of discoloration. Like in-office whitening, we select systems geared toward offering exceptional results while keeping your comfort, health, and sensitivity in mind.
