See Significant Improvements In One Appointment

Several external factors may stain your pearly whites over time. Beverages such as coffee, tea, and soda can lead to discoloration of your teeth. While yellow teeth do not necessarily mean they are unhealthy, you may feel less confident.

Depending on your desired time frame, you can choose to have this done in our office or to do it at home. If you would like to see visible results within one day, the in-office appointment may be your best option. First, you can discuss your goals with your dentist. Then, the bleaching agent will be applied to your teeth and activated using an LED light. After this, your pearly whites may be several shades brighter.

Brighten Your Smile At Home

For patients who prefer to do this at home, we can create a custom whitening kit for you. This is safer and more effective than generic store-bought strips. After a consultation with your dentist to discuss your goals, a bleaching agent and trays will be made for you. Unlike generic solutions, these trays will be designed based on your smile’s measures. This allows for a better fit and can target the necessary areas on your grin. You will wear this every day for the amount of time specified by your dentist. If you start this treatment today, your smile will have an enhanced appearance by Valentine’s Day.

Other Ways To Enhance Your Smile

While whitening is a great way to correct extrinsic staining, for patients with deeper discoloration, you may need to seek alternative options. One great method that can improve the appearance of your grin is bonding and contouring. If you have minor blemishes or discoloration, bonding can camouflage this with the use of composite resin. Contouring can be used to reshape uneven or pointy teeth as well, leaving you with a symmetrical smile.

For patients looking to make several changes to their grins, veneers are also a great option. This treatment is permanent and may take a few appointments. You can discuss your choices with your dentist before beginning treatment.
