Teeth stains can make you feel uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile. Fortunately, our team can offer a brighter smile with professional teeth whitening. We have in-office and at-home options! In today’s blog, your Sheridan, WY, dentist talks about how we offer brighter smiles with professional whitening services.
The Causes of Your Dental Discoloration
Our teeth can develop unsightly yellow and brown stains over time, which can be a source of embarrassment. For many, these are caused by plaque buildup, which makes them more visible. Plaque and tartar buildup are often the result of a diet high in sugar and starch, and infrequent or improper brushing and flossing habits. Stains could also occur if you have infrequent dental cleanings, and consume drinks with dark pigments, such as soda, red wine, coffee, and tea. Smoking cigarettes and using other tobacco predicts can disorder your teeth as well. To decide which teeth whitening treatment is right for you, we will examine your smile to assess the cause and beauty of your dental discoloration.
Whitening Smiles from In-Office
For fast results, we could offer an in-office teeth whitening procedure. For many, this brightens teeth by several shades in as little as one to two hours. The procedure is a simple one. Our team will place a protective coating on your lips and gums, and then apply the bleaching gel to the teeth. The bleaching ingredients are then activated with a light, and the process of removing discoloration begins. We repeat this process as needed to offer stunning results. If you have a first date, a job interview, or another big event, this can offer the results you need.
Fighting Discoloration from Home
We also have a cosmetic option that you can use from the comfort of your own home. Our home-based option employs custom plastic trays you pick up at our foie, and a powerful bleaching gel that comes in several plastic syringes. At home, you fill each tray and wear them for a set amount of time, usually between 30 and 45 minutes. The trays ensure the results are even, and that saliva doesn’t dilute the gel at all. For many, teeth could be eight shades brighter, and the risk of tooth sensitivity is much smaller. You then keep any leftover gel and the trays to use as needed in the months to come.
