If your teeth have become stained or discolored over time, you may be ready to face the world with a whiter smile. But life can be busy, and our dentist and team understand that. We offer take-home teeth whitening treatments so that you can brighten your smile when it is convenient for you.
Your first step toward a whiter smile begins with a visit to our office. Our team will take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to craft your customized whitening trays. When we give you your trays, we will also give you tubes of whitening gel. You will simply place the gel in the trays, which you will wear as directed by our dentist. The good news is that you can wear the trays before or after work or school, during your morning or evening commute, or even overnight. As you wear the trays, the gel penetrates your tooth enamel, breaking up the stains and making them harder to see. After several weeks, you should notice a difference in the color of your smile.
There are steps you can take to maintain your new smile. You can avoid or limit your intake of dark-colored foods and beverages. If you smoke or use tobacco products, now may be a good time to quit. You should continue to brush and floss your teeth every day and keep your appointments for your cleanings and exams. Our dentist can also talk with you about toothpastes, rinses or mouthwashes that can help you keep your smile white.
