Teeth Whitening Methods to Rid Your Smile of Stains

teeth whitening methods to erase stainsTeeth-whitening has become one of the most frequently-requested cosmetic dental procedures today, which should be no surprise considering teeth stains are the most common cosmetic dental blemish. In fact, your teeth can stain simply from eating and drinking, and while there are measures you can take to help protect your smile’s pride, chances are your teeth will eventually show signs of your past meals. Luckily, you can brighten your smile with your choice of teeth-whitening treatments, which can be applied either in our office or from home.

Teeth Whitening on Your Terms

If you’re in a hurry, or have an upcoming event for which you have to look your absolute best, you may benefit from our in-office teeth whitening treatment. The procedure only requires one visit, which typically lasts just over an hour, and can brighten your smile up to eight shades or more. Come in for your teeth whitening appointment and leave the same day with your brand new smile ready to impress your friends and peers.

If you have no imminent social obligations and would prefer to improve your smile on your own time, then we can custom-design a set of teeth whitening trays and provide you with professional-strength whitening gel. The trays allow you to evenly apply the gel over the surfaces of your teeth for optimal results, and by closely following instructions, you can transform your smile in as little as two weeks. You can even request more gel to continue touching up your smile whenever you need to and help maintain a bright smile for life.

For Especially Tough Teeth Stains

Some teeth stains may originate from within your tooth (intrinsic tooth stains) and won’t respond to chemical teeth-whitening procedures. For severe stains and discoloration, your dentist may recommend a cosmetic dental bonding procedure, which involves bonding carefully tinted composite resin to the target area and sculpting it to blend in with your tooth. Aside from unsightly color, bonding can also help correct minor chips, cavities, and odd spaces between teeth.
