Restore a Bright, White Smile
Are you embarrassed by brown or yellow teeth? You don’t need to hide behind a discolored smile. Your cosmetic dentist can turn back time with teeth whitening. We offer the personalized solutions you need to reveal a brighter smile in-office or at-home. We’ll get your teeth several shades whiter to give you a confident smile you’ll want to show off.
Causes of Tooth Discoloration
Tooth discoloration is unavoidable as you age because your enamel thins, making more of your yellowish dentin visible. Not to mention, genetics can also affect the color of your teeth. Besides age and your genetic makeup, you can experience premature discoloration if you don’t practice the proper oral hygiene habits or regularly consume darkly pigmented foods and drinks, like coffee. Smoking is also a contributor to stains because of the tar and nicotine found in cigarettes.
Teeth Whitening Treatments
Now, you have more options than ever to revitalize your smile. After an initial consultation to determine the cause of your discoloration, your dentist will recommend a customized treatment plan, which can include:
In-Office Whitening System
We can get your teeth 8 to 10 shades brighter in just one appointment. After applying a protective barrier to your lips and soft tissues, we place the whitening agent on your teeth. It’s activated using a special light, which allows the solution to deeply penetrate your enamel to lift stains below the surface. The process is performed for three 15-minute intervals. In about 1 hour, you can have the dazzling smile you deserve.
At-Home Whitening Kit
You can achieve professional results from the comfort of your own home. We’ll give you everything you need to brighten your smile around your own schedule. You’ll use the whitening trays each night for about 2 weeks. As each day passes, you’ll see your smile gradually get whiter. An at-home kit is also the perfect solution for patients who need to restore their previous in-office results.
Maintain a Bright Smile
Your beautiful smile can stay vibrant for several months with the right aftercare. You can help protect your investment by following a few simple tips:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste.
- Clean all surfaces of your teeth for at least two minutes.
- Floss your teeth nightly.
- Visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
- Limit your consumption of darkly pigmented foods and drinks.
