Have you noticed your tooth color becoming yellowed and dulled over the years? There are several reasons our teeth darken over time; the natural aging process, staining from certain drinks, like coffee, wine, tea, and soda, as well as pigmented foods like berries, mediations, and tobacco use to name a few.
There are multiple options to whiten your teeth that can be purchased over the counter. The truth is, nothing works like a professional-grade whitening system. We can provide take-home teeth whitening treatment and monitor your results until you achieve the shade you desire. Call us today to schedule an appointment to learn more about teeth whitening. We look forward to enhancing your smile!
Frequently Asked Questions
I see a lot of over the counter products, which is better for what I need?
Like many things these days, there are many DIY or over the counter options available. The benefit is using a maximum strength product for whitening, which is stronger in the office than you can typically find over the counter. Depending on your desired outcome, and over the counter product may be fine and you can achieve the results you are looking for. However, if you want the best you can buy, using a maximum strength product, seeing a professional, and having them oversee your progress will help you obtain the best outcome.
How long will my teeth whitening last?
The results of your teeth whitening treatment will depend on which method you choose. At-home whitening trays are up to you to use as needed, so results depend on how frequently they are used.
If you opt for our Opalescence take-home kit, your teeth whitening can last over a year if you have a healthy diet and limit your intake of staining agents like tobacco, coffee, red wine, and berries.
It’s also important to regularly schedule dental hygiene appointments so we can give you a helping hand in keeping your teeth clean and pearly white.
