YYour teeth can become discolored or stained for several reasons. Smoking or drinking a lot of coffee can lead to discolored teeth. There are also medicines that cause discoloration. Aging can darken the teeth as well.
When your teeth are no longer as white as before, we can recommend teeth whitening solutions that will work more effectively than over the counter products. Professional teeth whitening is safer and longer lasting as well.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
This procedure is often more appropriate for severely discolored teeth. It’s also a viable option if you want faster results. We start the procedure by applying protective cream over your gums and other soft tissues. We then apply the whitening gel over your teeth and allow it to set. Laser is often used to accelerate the whitening effects.
At Home Teeth Whitening
Unlike over the counter products, the at-home teeth whitening kits we offer are more effective and safe to use. It’s more affordable than in-office whitening although the results are more gradual. And since the effect isn’t instant, your friends and colleagues won’t notice the sudden whiteness of your teeth. You’ll need to apply the treatment several times and you’ll also be required to use a customized mouth guard to ensure that the whitening agent can work on your teeth.
