Have you been thinking about treatments to enhance your smile’s natural shade? If discoloration or blemishes are beginning to take hold of your once bright enamel, teeth whitening from your dentist can go far beyond the abilities of an over-the-counter solution. That is because we customize professional-grade dental bleach to bring out the specific shade you select. Using a powerful light, we can accelerate the lifting of stains and perform multiple rounds one after the other. This leads to immediate results that are apparent upon leaving our office. Before going forward with treatment, we will examine the nature of your discoloration to ensure that you are an appropriate candidate. If we find that damage to the enamel itself is the reason for the change in your smile’s appearance we may suggest another cosmetic procedure such as placing porcelain veneers. This can save disappointment from receiving the improper cosmetic approach.
At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we believe your smile plays a central role in your appearance. By being the center of attention whenever you speak, even minor imperfections in your smile can become highly noticeable. By addressing stains and yellowing teeth, you can regain confidence in your professional and personal life. For added convenience, we offer the same strength treatment in a take-home kit for personal use. If you prefer this option, you may apply touchups after your initial procedure.
How Stains Take Hold Of Your Smile
While you cannot control all factors that lead to dental discoloration, monitoring your diet and oral hygiene can preserve the color of your teeth. If you enjoy coffee, tea, soda, or wine, pay attention to any streaks left behind when having one of these drinks. Consider an alternative if you see stains afterward. Similarly, failing to brush and floss daily or attend regular checkups can accumulate plaque that forms a yellow sticky film on the surface of your smile. Remember that it is never too late to get back on track with regular checkups and cleanings if you have not been to the dentist in a while!
Professional Teeth Whitening
If we discover that your discoloration lies within the enamel layer, we can perform a teeth whitening session to strip foreign material from your smile. By applying a layer of strong bleaching gel, stains melt away with the application of a powerful light. We can provide the same gel we use in the office in the form of a take-home kit for you to apply on your own if you wish.
