Professional teeth whitening treatments are a quick, effective and easy way to improve the appearance of your teeth. There are several types of teeth whitening treatments available, and our dentist and team will work with you to find the type of whitening that will be most effective for your smile and most convenient for your schedule.
Your teeth may become dull or stained over time due to:
- The natural aging process
- Poor dental hygiene
- Smoking and tobacco usage
- Illness and certain medications
- Fluorosis (excessive consumption of fluoride)
- Foods and drinks that stain (such as tea, wine, coffee and soda)
When you visit our office, our dentist will help you determine which type of whitening will be most effective for you based on your personal needs and desires. There are two main forms of professional whitening treatments – in-office whitening and take-home whitening. Both forms of whitening work by applying a powerful whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. This gel lightens the appearance of stains, discolorations and yellowing on the tooth enamel to renew your smile. In-office whitening treatments can be completed in as little as one appointment, and produce dramatic results for your smile after a single visit, while take-home whitening relies on custom-made trays that you can wear at home to whiten your smile on your own schedule.
Please remember that teeth whitening may not be permanent, and that you may need to receive an additional treatment every so often to touch-up your smile. You can extend the results of your whitening treatment by practicing good oral hygiene, avoiding foods and beverages that stain, and visiting our office regularly for preventive care.
