Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. Many factors (such as smoking and comsuming coffee, tea, wine and many other foods) have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, and even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we usually recommend utilizing a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll craft your custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and use it in the trays in your mouth for a short period of time each day over a period of a few days to a couple of weeks. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 – 8 shades!
We may recommend using a different teeth whitening system instead, such as Crest White Strips. We make these available to you in our office at a competetive cost and at a higher strength than what is available “over the counter” in stores.
Please contact us today to see if you are a candidate for one of these types of whitening.
