You can’t always prevent your teeth from staining or losing their youthful shine over time, so how do you fix it when it happens? The bad news is that common teeth stains can have a dramatic effect on your smile’s appearance. The good news, though, is that your dentist may be able to help you easily and effectively erase the stains and brighten your teeth with professional-strength teeth-whitening treatment.
Why your teeth look different
Not all teeth stain the same, but for the most common cases of teeth stains, the cause is something simple. For instance, the colorful molecules in your food and beverages can cling to your tooth enamel and, over time, start to affect your teeth’s appearance. This and other sources can cause the outer layer of your tooth enamel to stain, and the visible impact can be more noticeable the more it occurs. Fortunately, common extrinsic (outer) tooth staining isn’t usually a serious health concern for your teeth. Therefore, brightening your teeth doesn’t usually require having to address your main tooth structure.
Your professional option for brightening them
Teeth-whitening in general is a popular treatment, and it’s simple enough that you can find countless whitening products for your teeth in the dental hygiene aisle of most grocery stores. However, simplicity doesn’t mean that it should be done by just anyone, or that any product will do. Professional teeth-whitening is specially designed to achieve optimal whitening results while also protecting the health and integrity of your tooth structure and enamel. This takes professional care and the customized, high-quality treatment you can only receive at your dentist’s office.
Teeth-whitening, your way
At our office, we know that teeth may stain multiple times throughout your life, and it would be inconvenient to have to undergo significant treatment every time you want to erase them. That’s why we offer teeth-whitening in customizable treatment options, including fast in-office treatment and more leisurely take-home whitening. During in-office treatment, we can apply the whitening gel to your teeth and stimulate it to achieve results in just over an hour. Or, we can custom-design a set of trays that you can take home and use to apply the whitening gel to your teeth on your own time.
