If you are like most people, you probably noticed that as you have aged, your teeth just are not as white as they used to be. While the darkening of teeth is a natural part of aging, it doesn’t mean you have to stand for a yellow smile!
At Smiling Hills Dental, we can help you regain the glowing, bright smile of your youth!
How Teeth Become Stained
You probably know that if you drink soda or coffee or use tobacco it can darken your smile. But foods like curry, colorful fruits and vegetables, tea, and red wine can also take a toll on the appearance of your smile.
A professional dental cleaning can remove some of the surface stains on your teeth, but for deeper stains, professional teeth whitening can achieve the dramatic results that many people want!
How Teeth Whitening Works
It is always best to have your teeth cleaned prior to whitening your teeth. This removes the tartar from your teeth and allows the whitening gel to come into direct contact with your teeth, giving you better results.
We will take impressions of your teeth and create personal, customized whitening trays that fit snugly, holding your whitening gel against your teeth. It is important to use only the recommended amount of whitening gel so you can avoid gum irritation and sensitivity.
You can wear your whitening trays at home when it works for you. We recommend wearing them for about an hour or two each day over the course of a couple of weeks, depending on your level of staining. Dr. Michael Alano will discuss proper use of your whitening system so you can achieve the results you want.
Once your initial whitening treatment is complete, you can hold onto your whitening trays so you can touch up your teeth every so often.
