Achieve This Safely At Home

Before reaching for the store-bought kits you can purchase, you may want to consult with your dentist. Some of these generic supplies can contain harsh ingredients that can harm your smile. Instead, your dentist can examine your pearly whites and create a personalized whitening set that can be used at home. A custom tray will be made based on the measurements of your oral cavity. You will apply the bleaching agent to these trays every day for about two weeks, as determined by your dentist. Then, you can show off your stunning results. This is a great option for patients who have a longer time before their upcoming special event.

Do you need this done in less time? We also offer expedited treatment that can be done in our office. During your appointment, the bleaching agent will be applied to your teeth and activated with a light. This visit will take about an hour and can leave you with a vibrant smile. This option is great for patients who would like to improve the look of their pearly whites with less time. Before having this done, you will need to discuss this treatment with your dentist to ensure it is the right option for your needs.

If This Whitening Treatment Does Not Work

A professional brightening treatment is great for patients who have stains on their teeth due to external factors, such as coffee or soda consumption. For patients whose discoloration occurs internally, other cosmetic treatments may be necessary. This intrinsic staining may happen due to genetics, changes in health, or injury to the area. If the discoloration has happened due to trauma, restorations may need to be done first to ensure your teeth are healthy. After the problem has been repaired, you can discuss visual improvements that can be made.

One helpful way to improve the look of these blemishes is through cosmetic bonding. Your dentist can add composite resin to areas that are discolored or chipped. This can help you achieve an even-appearing grin in just a single appointment. You can also pair this with contouring to improve jagged or uneven-sized teeth.
