Over time, teeth can become dark, dull, yellowish, brownish, or unevenly colored. This staining is caused mainly by foods, drinks, and other substances coming into contact with teeth.
Thankfully, our teeth whitening procedure whitens your teeth by removing the discoloration. It restores your teeth to their original white appearance. Thanks to our teeth whitening process, you’ll soon be completely happy with your dazzling smile.
Teeth Whitening Candidates
Teeth whitening is a good procedure for almost everyone. However, some stained teeth are much harder to whiten. Teeth that are stained with reddish or dark gray shades are the hardest to whiten. One example of this dark shade is seen in teeth spoiled by tetracycline. However, long-term care can still whiten dark teeth to some extent.
Depending on your desired results, teeth whitening can be a solution for dark (red/gray) teeth. Otherwise, one excellent option is porcelain veneers. They let you decide how white you want your smile to be.
Teeth Whitening Options
Our teeth whitening procedure is effective and safe, with more dramatic, more predictable results. It starts with a thorough exam to ensure you’re a good fit, and the procedure is done under professional supervision. If necessary, we can adjust the technique and formula for patients with stubborn stains, tooth sensitivity, and any other individual concerns.
We Provide Two Convenient Solutions
In-office teeth whitening: This is the quickest way to brighten your smile. The process is completed within an hour, with your smile immediately getting up to eight times brighter. This is an amazing option when you need to look great ahead of a special event like a wedding, big date, job interview, or class reunion.
At-home teeth whitening: Along with our in-office teeth whitening, we also give you the option of whitening your teeth at home with our professional-grade teeth whitening kits. Our dentist makes these kits, which include custom-fitted trays filled with concentrated bleaching gel. If you follow our dentist’s instructions, your teeth can be six shades lighter within two weeks.
Either solution will yield great results for most of our patients. In very rare cases, certain stains may not be removed by teeth whitening. In such cases, we can cover the stains with tooth bonding, or cover the teeth with porcelain veneers to get the brilliant smile that you want.
Before you undergo either procedure, our teeth whitening expert will examine your mouth and teeth thoroughly to determine why you have tooth discoloration. Once they’ve found out the case, the expert will help you choose the best teeth whitening solution for your teeth.
