For many dental patients, their primary concern with the appearance of their smile is the whiteness of their teeth. The tooth whitening process is a simple way to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth by removing years of stains and discoloration. Tooth whitening is a great option for people who are looking to change the color and appearance of their natural teeth. However, individuals with restorations should note that the bleaching process will not make any difference in the color of crowns, fillings, and other add-ons.
Why Are Your Teeth Stained?
Have you noticed that your once beautiful smile is looking a little dull? There are a variety of reasons why your teeth may have developed yellow or brown stains:
The Whitening Process
Home whitening systems are one of the most popular ways to achieve a brighter smile, and we offer a take-home system that can get you your desired results. The process will consist of two appointments. In the first, molds will be taken of your mouth to create trays that will be used to hold the whitening gel. When you return to the office for your second appointment, we will make sure the trays fit correctly and will make any necessary adjustments. We will provide you with instructions on how frequently to wear your trays in order to achieve optimal whitening results.
Maintaining Your White Smile
Teeth whitening isn’t a permanent procedure. If you tend to drink beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, and soda, or if you smoke, your teeth may begin to stain again within a month. However, if you take some simple steps, you can extend the longevity of your white teeth, and you may not need a touch-up for a year or more:
