You might not be happy with the color of your teeth, and that can make you feel self-conscious. Teeth may be discolored or stained for various reasons. Tobacco; certain foods and drinks; tartar; excessive fluoridation when your teeth were developing; even taking the antibiotic tetracycline during early childhood can all contribute to tooth discoloration. Teeth whitening procedures can help reduce most discoloration and improve appearance.
Teeth whitening is a simple and noninvasive treatment that works on natural teeth. The most popular way to dramatically whiten teeth is the at-home method. This method requires two appointments. Impressions of your teeth will be made at the first appointment so we can fabricate a custom clear plastic tray. At the second appointment, we will give you the customized trays and whitening solution as well as care instructions. The trays are worn with the whitening solution for 30 minutes to an hour daily for two weeks. You might experience some tooth sensitivity while you are whitening, but it will subside soon after the bleaching process has finished.
There are also immediate teeth whitening methods available. Give us a call, and we will help you choose the right option and provide that beautiful white smile you’ve been longing to have.
