What can be done if I have stained or discolored teeth? How can I safely whiten my teeth?
Tooth whitening is one the safest, easiest and most remarkable procedures in cosmetic dentistry. You can revitalize your teeth to a healthy, more vibrant appearance and erase the signs of aging thanks to the modern technology of teeth whitening. We utilize a simple at-home whitening kit you can use during the day or night in the convenience of your home. This allows you to control the level of whitening you desire, in addition to allowing future touch-ups periodically with the reusable custom-made trays in this system. The results are incredible and long-lasting.
It is important we have a brief consultation before the procedure to evaluate the cause of discoloration, and to ensure you are a good candidate for whitening treatment. Teeth with dark gray staining due to tetracycline use or fluorosis are more resistant to whitening, so results may be less dramatic. In addition, synthetic restorative and filling materials, such as porcelain and composite resins, will not lighten. We may have to consider other options, such as bonding or porcelain veneers, to get you the brighter smile you always wanted.
