Our Goal is to give you a smile you love
Sometimes teeth are discolored because of an underlying issue, which means they will not respond to teeth whitening methods. Discoloration caused by injuries or medication will not respond to bleaching; unnatural teeth such as crowns, caps, fillings and veneers will not be improved by bleach. That’s why meeting with your dentist before starting a whitening regimen is important. Your dentist will perform an examination and can help you determine the best method for whitening your teeth.
You can purchase peroxide-based home whitening products that bleach tooth enamel. The Smile Center can help you create the bright smile you want by taking impressions to create trays for you to whiten your teeth at home. You will be provided with instructions at your appointment to allow you to add a whitening solution to the trays.
One of the simplest options is a whitening toothpaste. These toothpastes use mild abrasives to break down and remove surface stains from tooth enamel. This type of whitening does not alter the color of the teeth, but simply helps to loosen and remove the stains on the surface of the enamel. This method reaches all the teeth. Be sure to check for the ADA seal to find the most effective, safest whitening toothpaste.
This method typically requires only one office visit and usually provides the most dramatic results. Your dentist can help you get whitening trays that are custom-fit for your teeth. This ensures you get even, complete coverage over the surface of all your teeth. Often, a dentist can use an ultraviolet (UV) light to speed the process. UV light provides immediate results. In just two hours, you can leave the office with teeth up to 2 shades lighter! Impressions are taken at this appointment for bleaching trays for you to continue whitening at home.
