Popular, safe, and effective, teeth whitening has given patients across the world a reason to smile. Your appearance can affect you socially, emotionally, and even in business successes. People who smile with confidence are viewed as warm, inviting, and beautiful. Now, with professional whitening systems, we can help you achieve the pearly whites of magazine models and movie stars.
Why Teeth Discolor
Chemicals in foods, beverages, and tobacco can change the color of your teeth, as can the effects of aging. Medications such as tetracycline, excessive fluoride, and previous dental work may also cause unsightly stains on your tooth enamel. Genetics can also affect the color of your teeth. While we think of tooth enamel as white, the natural, unstained shade of your teeth can range from pearly white to bluish gray to pale yellow. Even if you brush and floss daily, stains can tarnish your beautiful smile and steal the confident image you want to convey.
You don’t have to live with discolored teeth. After a thorough examination, we can recommend the best option for whitening and brightening your smile.
If you’d prefer to whiten at home, we can create clear, customized bleaching trays. Simply line your custom-made trays with the whitening solution we provide and wear them as directed each day. You will notice whiter teeth almost immediately, but the most dramatic results will appear after one to two weeks of daily treatments.
In-office whitening is one of the safest and quickest ways to safely whiten your teeth. During this process, we will apply a professional bleaching gel to your teeth. In less than an hour, the bleaching gel will remove deep-down stains, lightening teeth an average of eight shades.
If bleaching and whitening can’t get your teeth as white as you’d like, veneers or bonding may be a good solution. These cosmetic procedures are long lasting and do not discolor or stain. In addition to whitening your smile, veneers and bonding can cover cracks, chips, and slight misalignment.
