Drinking tea, coffee, soda, and red wine, smoking cigarettes, and taking certain medicines can discolor your teeth and thereby make you look older. We can help you combat this problem using a variety of methods. Our team can give you the option of many whitening solutions to suit your particular dental needs. Both in-office and take-home whitening solutions are available and can easily fight the discoloring effects of the aforementioned, common behaviors.
In-office whitening is a chemically activated whitening treatment that can provide astonishing results within an hour. It is performed with dentist supervision and is very safe. You will leave the appointment with a whiter smile. We also offer a take-home whitening kit that has personalized bleaching trays with sticky whitening gel that won’t migrate to your gums after application.
Both of these whitening solutions contain potassium fluoride, which can strengthen enamel, decrease sensitivity, and prevent cavity formation. However, whitening is sometimes implausible for those who have had cosmetic dental work such as crowns, veneers, and bonding, because these appliances do not react to our whitening treatments. Before we create your personalized whitening plan, you must undergo an exam and a cleaning.
Patients should also remember that drinking coffee or tea, or participating in any other aforementioned behaviors will decrease the effectiveness of the whitening treatments.
