Improving The Shade Of Your Smile

Are your teeth as bright as you would like them to be? As the years go on, stains and blemishes can build on the surface of your enamel that leave a prematurely aged appearance. While your smile may be completely healthy, this discoloration can give the false impression that something is wrong with your oral hygiene. While brushing and flossing at home may not be able to remove stains that are set inside the mineral of your enamel, a professional whitening treatment can help. When you visit our office, we can inspect your smile to determine the nature of the changing color of your teeth. In as little as a single afternoon, we could leave your smile looking several shades brighter. For patients who prefer, we could also design a take-home kit to perform this procedure at your own pace.

At your Ankeny, IA dental practice, we provide cosmetic dental care to help you look your best. If changes in your smile’s appearance affect your confidence, you may be surprised to find how easily we can address certain imperfections. If we determine that your discoloration is due to the loss of the surface enamel itself, we could also discuss porcelain veneers to help restore a beautiful smile! By learning more about your various options for smile improvement, you can enjoy the cosmetic improvement to be proud of!

How Stains Build In Your Smile

When teeth start to turn permanently yellow or maintain dark streaks across the surface, it can be quite a blow to your self-confidence. You may find yourself less outgoing or attempting to hide your teeth when speaking and eating. By taking time to learn which materials specifically affect your grin, you can prevent further discoloration. Tobacco use and drinks such as tea, coffee, soda, and wine are all common contributors to this problem.

Professional Teeth Whitening

When you visit our office, we will suggest a whitening procedure for stains and discoloration on the surface of your enamel. In a single visit, we can apply a layer of powerful bleaching gel to your teeth that lifts stains. With a professional touch, we avoid harming your gums and employ a special light to accelerate the bleaching effect of the treatment. We repeat rounds of this procedure as needed until reaching the desired shade.
