Safely Brighten Your Smile At Home

Although store-bought whitening products may be tempting, these products may contain harsh ingredients and are not personalized to your needs. If you want to remove stains from your enamel in the comfort of your home in a safe way, our tailored at-home solution is a great option for you. At your next checkup, you can discuss your goals with your dentist. They will examine your teeth and help you determine what the best way to reach these may be. If whitening can help, our team will send you home with trays and a bleaching solution. You will wear them every day for the amount of time instructed by your dentist. In about a week or so, you can enjoy vibrant results.

A Helpful In-Office Option

If you do not have time to wait several days to achieve a brighter grin, we also offer this option in our office. During your appointment, the team will apply the bleaching agent to your teeth. Then, it will be activated using a light. This will help remove stains faster. You can leave this appointment with a visible improvement.

For some patients, this professional treatment may not help remove stains. Some discoloration may be due to intrinsic stains. Unlike the yellowing that can occur on your enamel due to certain foods and drinks, internal discoloration occurs from factors like genetics, injuries, or certain conditions. In this case, alternative methods like bonding or veneers may be necessary to disguise your blemishes,

Why Should You Whiten Your Smile?

Having white teeth does not necessarily mean they are healthy, but it does have several benefits for your self-esteem. You may be more inclined to show off your pearly whites if they are not yellow. It can also help you look younger, leave a good impression on others, and can make you feel more confident if you have a special occasion coming up. Once you have a stain-free smile, it may also encourage you to take better care of your oral hygiene. It is important to remember though that cosmetic treatments do not improve your oral health. If you have dental concerns, such as cavities, gum disease, or injured teeth, these will need to be treated beforehand.
