What is Teeth Whitening?
Over time and with certain lifestyle habits, teeth begin to yellow and dull. This can cause you to feel badly about your appearance and your smile. In order to lift and dissolve stains, professional whitening is necessary. We offer teeth whitening services to get you feeling better about the look of your smile.
Why is Teeth Whitening needed?
You might be looking to whiten your smile before other procedures or when having restorations placed. Likewise, you might have whitening done because you have an upcoming wedding or special event. Other patients simply want to whiten their smile because they’re tired of feeling badly about the way that they look. Whitening can reverse years of staining and discoloration from your natural teeth.
Who is a good candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Whitening works best on natural teeth and often won’t lighten restorations like fillings, crowns or bridge work. If you have severe sensitivity problems, we may recommend other treatment options besides whitening. However, most patients who want whitening done can safely come in for treatment. Whitening results can last for months or even several years before you may consider re-treatment.
What happens during the Teeth Whitening process?
We offer at-home whitening options that allow you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own bedroom or bathroom. We take impressions and use these to create custom-fitted trays. We then provide you with a whitening gel that is used in conjunction with these trays at home. You can keep the trays after treatment and simply come in for more whitening gel as needed. We even offer in-office whitening options for those wanting a quick and effective way to eliminate stains and deep discoloration. You will find that your results are more brilliant when compared to what you might find when using whitening products that you can purchase from a local drugstore in the area.
If you think you might need whitening and want to learn more about this procedure, call us today and we can schedule a consultation appointment for you.
