Feel free to read through them. If your question is not addressed here, call us and we will be happy to help.
In order to determine if you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening, we will need to do an evaluation to look at some aspects of your dental health. Clean teeth whiten best, so having a professional dental cleaning first will ensure that you are actually whitening your teeth and not the plaque on your teeth. The whitening gel needs to come into contact with the surface of your teeth in order to bleach the stains.
Different Types Of Staining
Certain types of stains respond to bleaching while other stains cannot. Teeth that are yellow due to tobacco use, coffee, tea, and other darkly colored foods or beverages are good candidates for professional teeth whitening and respond well to treatment.
Dark teeth due to trauma, certain medications, and decalcification may require more dramatic treatment in order to achieve the results you want. If you have deep stains, we can still treat you with other dental procedures such as veneers, crowns, or dental bonding.
Do's & Don'ts
Avoiding certain foods and beverages during the whitening process is important. Avoiding foods like curry, red wine, and artificially colored foods will protect your smile and improve your results.
Our patients love looking good and feeling great. While all of the dentistry we provide is attractive and high quality, sometimes patients approach us specifically wishing to improve the appearance of their smiles. Having a beautiful smile can give you the confidence you have always wanted.
Giving You The Smile You Want
We offer beautiful, natural-looking, cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry ranges in treatment from professional teeth whitening, the most affordable and easiest way to improve your smile, to a full smile makeover that addresses issues such as crooked, stained, or worn teeth.
