As you grow older, the actual mineral structure of your teeth may change and cause each tooth to appear darker in color. Dark or yellow teeth may lower your self-confidence, and make you self-conscious about your smile. Fortunately, advances in teeth bleaching have made it possible to obtain a brighter, whiter smile with a few simple steps.
Changes in the Color of Your Teeth
Food, drinks, and even certain medications can change the look of your smile by darkening the color of your teeth. With dental bleaching, you aren’t just whitening the surface of your teeth, but taking it one step further and restoring your teeth back to their natural color. Teeth bleaching has become increasingly popular as more patients realize that the procedure can make each smile look whiter and brighter after a few simple applications.
Dental bleaching is safer than using surface whiteners, as a peroxide-based gel is applied to the teeth rather than an abrasive whitener that may only reduce surface stains on the tooth. Each application session is only 20-30 minutes, and you’ll quickly notice a difference in the color of your smile after only a few sessions with your bleaching trays and easily applied bleaching gel.
What to Expect
Although not all discolorations will respond to teeth bleaching, many people are pleasantly surprised at how quickly their smile becomes whiter and brighter. It is recommended that any patient interested in teeth bleaching visit a dentist before trying a home bleaching kit, and we offer several in-office procedures as well as take-home bleaching kits to those who want to take advantage of these valuable tools.
Dental bleaching is a simple procedure that can be performed at home after a consultation with a dentist. Thin trays are molded to your teeth and filled with a bleaching gel and worn for a pre-determined amount of time for each session. You are required only to fill the trays and wear them consistently as directed by your dentist.
For patients with severe discoloration, sensitive gums, fillings or crowns, we offer several alternatives or precautions that make it easy to obtain the look you desire.
