Why should I have my teeth whitened?
Dental whitening can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining from food or drinks, medications, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” 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.
- Corrects brown, yellow and mottled tooth staining
- Works on people of all ages.
- Is a near permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive.
How is it done?
An impression is taken to make a specialized “clear retainer tray” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-5 minutes for a week or two; after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging and darkness of teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies at a lower concentration. However, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
