Improving The Shade Of Your Smile

Have you been looking for ways to improve the color of your smile? When your teeth’s shade begins to darken, a professional whitening session could lift the pigment from your enamel to return your original white look. While an over-the-counter solution may seem convenient, consulting with your dentist can lead to a custom solution created specifically for your unique needs.

At Sunny Smiles, we offer cosmetic treatments to address discoloration and return the natural beauty that lies beneath stains on your smile. This procedure complements rather than alters your grin by bleaching away the imperfections. To accommodate your schedule, we offer accelerated treatment in our office as well as take-home kits for you to use at your leisure. Let us know which you prefer, and we can whip up a whitening treatment today!

Common Causes Of Dental Staining

While certain factors that lead to discoloration are genetic, others are due to behaviors that you can modify. For instance, pigments in drinks such as coffee, tea, soda, and wine can stain your smile over the years. To avoid additional discoloration, you can choose different drinks to keep a bright smile. Tobacco use is another major contributor to yellow teeth in all of its forms. Consider the beauty of your smile to be one of the many benefits of quitting smoking or other tobacco products. Because bacteria love sugar and starch, reducing these items in your diet can help prevent plaque buildups that cause a yellow film on the surface of your smile. In the same vein, make sure to brush and floss every day to best clear plaque before it can set in or cause damaging cavities.

In-office Teeth Whitening

If you have a big date or important meeting coming up, a professional whitening session at our office can offer results in a single afternoon! When you sit in the dental chair, we will apply a bleaching solution to your teeth and use a special light to accelerate the lifting of your stains. We then repeat this process for many rounds until we reach your desired shade. This entire process can be done in as little as an hour for many patients!

A Take-Home Kit For Your Convenience

If you want to address your discoloration more gradually, we can create a take-home kit with the same strength as our in-office treatment option. We will measure your smile to create a custom set of trays that fit your smile. Once a day, you will apply a bleaching solution to your trays and wear them as instructed. Over one or two weeks you will see your desired results come in as the stains wash away. When you are finished, you may hold on to your kit for future touchups.
