Over time, you may have noticed that your teeth are not quite as bright and white as they once were. Teeth whitening treatments from your dentist are a great way to restore the brightness of your enamel.
Is teeth whitening right for me?
Most people experience tooth yellowing, dulling, and discoloration to one degree or another as the years pass. This may be caused by a variety of habits and lifestyle factors, such as:
- Smoking and other types of tobacco use
- The use of certain medications
- Consuming certain foods and beverages, including wine, soda, tea, and coffee
- The natural aging process
- Certain illnesses
- Poor oral hygiene and dental care
If your teeth have been dulled and darkened by these or other factors, you may feel self-conscious about your smile’s appearance. At Smiles Dental, we are pleased to offer professional teeth whitening to lighten your teeth and restore your bright, white smile.
How does it work?
In-Office teeth whitening is a 2 hour appointment that brightens your smile in no time! When you visit our office, we will cover your gums with a protective coating and apply the bleach to your teeth. Our team will then use the light to activate the bleaching treatment. We will complete this process 3 times to ensure we remove any discoloration and stains.
Many patients ask what the difference is between In-Office Whitening versus at home whitening. The simple answer is time! Our in-office treatment takes about 2 hours. It will take about 2 weeks to see the same results with at home whitening.
While most people’s results last for at least a few months, you may want whitening touch-ups in the future to keep your smile bright.
We are eager to help you achieve a beautiful white smile you love to show off!
