Dental whitening agent can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful brilliant smile.
You can lighten your upper teeth, or both the upper and lower, depending on how much teeth you show when you talk and smile.
In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.
How is teeth whitening done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Works on people of all ages
- Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Enhance your overall appearance
- Does not damage your teeth!
- A near-permanent solution for a dull smile – restoring brightness to bring your smile alive
We provide you with a special medical grade whitening agent that you put into the clear splints. At the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant.
For convenience and comfort, many patients choose our Take-Home Whitening option. This kit includes a set of custom-made splints (or trays) that are molded to your teeth and gums for best fit.
Our special bleaching agent bubbles the stains right out of your enamel in a very short time. This process is done without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way.
Post Treatment Touch-Up
When your teeth reaches the desired brightness, only occasional treatment with Take-Home Whitening is needed to maintain your new smile.
This allows minor adjustments to touch up patches and spots that might have be re-stained after initial whitening.
If you feel discomfort or sensitivity, we encourage you to take a break and let your gums and teeth rest before continuing your treatment at home. Strengthening your confidence in your smile, this personalized bleaching technology improves your smile with the brightness you deserve!
Considerations for Teeth Whitening
For very severely stained teeth, an in-office whitening treatment might not be enough to reduce severe yellowing and stains. In such case, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate and more effective for a shinny new smile.
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth without guidance, it is better to use our Take-Home Whitening under our supervision.
We are with you every step of the way in your journey to a beautiful smile. Let us know your questions and concerns at your next visit!
