Nothing enhances a smile more than white teeth. However, keeping them white is no easy task. Dental whitening is a procedure that can help you get and keep a bright smile, and it is one of the many services we provide. If you are looking to make more drastic changes to your smile, schedule a private consultation with Dr. Schefdore. We will be able to discuss your concerns and provide you with all of your options.
Teeth will Naturally Darken Over Time
Teeth will naturally darken over time, especially considering the types of things put in our mouths. Smoking and the consumption of coffee, tea and soft drinks will take a toll on teeth and over time make them loose their natural color. Poor dental hygiene, including the absence of regular dental check ups, can also result in the discoloration of teeth. In some cases, the darkening may result from internal damage to the tooth.
Whiten Up to 10 Shades Brighter
Regular brushing is not always enough to keep the teeth naturally white, and over-the-counter whitening products often come up short of their expectations. A professional whitening procedure carried out at our office is the best way to achieve the results you desire. After your treatment, you may find that your teeth have been brightened by up to 10 shades.
Little or No Discomfort
A whitening procedure uses a bleaching agent that will break down the stains that have accumulated in the enamel of the teeth. It can normally be carried out in less than an hour, with little or no discomfort. Particularly difficult stains, such as those caused by medicine, may require more than one visit. However, you should notice dramatic results after the first procedure. Provided that you properly care for your teeth, the effects of whitening can last for years.
Our customized treatment procedures are geared to the needs of each patient. Please see instruction example. Teeth whitening is a good way to put a shine back into your smile.
