Whiten Teeth from Home
Over-the-counter teeth-whitening products are not strong enough to address most tooth stains, and the results are often disappointing. Our popular Opalescence™ take-home kit, on the other hand, combines the convenience of over-the-counter teeth whiteners with the power of professional dentistry. Your kit will contain a set of custom-designed trays that allow you to apply the potent whitening gel evenly over the surfaces of your teeth. Used daily, as directed, your smile can be 8-10 shades brighter in less than two weeks.
Whiten Teeth in Our Office
Do you need a brighter smile in a hurry? For patients who wish to whiten their teeth quickly, our in-office whitening treatment is performed in a single visit, which typically lasts just over an hour. During your visit, we will apply a specially-formulated whitening gel to your teeth, and then intensify the effects of the gel using a special light. The results are immediate, and you can leave our office with a brand new smile. You can also take home a set of whitening trays after your in-office appointment to maintain the effects of your whitening treatment.
What Causes Dental Stains?
Tooth stains are the result of numerous influences, the most common being meals and beverages. Food and drinks contain color molecules called chromogens, which have a strong tendency to cling to tooth enamel and darken the color of your teeth. If you can’t brush your teeth after every meal, then try swishing water around your mouth for about thirty seconds to a minute after eating. The water will wash away food debris, as well as neutralize acids that can weaken your enamel and facilitate staining.
If tooth stains don’t respond to chemical teeth-whitening, they may originate from within your tooth, or indicate a more serious problem. Teeth can darken with age, but they can also change color because of dental disease, dental trauma such as a crack or fracture, certain medications, and habits like tobacco use.
