When your smile doesn’t look its best, you can want to hide it. You shouldn’t let stains hold your smile back—you can do something about it! At ProSmiles Dental & Orthodontics, we provide professional treatment that can turn back the clock and help your teeth appear more youthful and radiant. Keep reading to learn more about how our at-home whitening kits can help you have the confidence to let the world see your smile.
Although strong, the surface of your teeth’s enamel is actually rougher than you may think. It can absorb or retain the color of the foods and drinks you consume, especially when they are darkly pigmented. Examples of these stain-causing substances include the following:
However, your tooth discoloration may result from other causes. For instance, certain medications can taint your teeth’s color as a side effect. Also, your enamel can wear down as a result of grinding your teeth (bruxism), bite misalignment, or excessively aggressive brushing. When this happens, the yellow dentin layer under the enamel becomes more visible. Over the natural course of time, your teeth can naturally start to appear yellow or dull as you age.
Although stores have products that are marketed to give you dramatic whitening results, they often fall short or don’t last very long. In contrast, in two weeks, our professional at-home teeth whitening solution is strong and highly concentrated to brighten your smile by up to ten shades—all from the comfort and convenience of your own home.
When you and one of our dentists has decided that professional at-home teeth whitening is right for you, we will follow these steps:
Within a few days, you should start to see a difference in your smile’s whiteness, but continue to use the at-home kit for two weeks for optimum results.
As much as you’ll love the results of the whitening treatment, keep in mind that it won’t last forever. If you would like to keep your bright teeth for as long as possible, try to avoid common stain-causing substances. Even with these efforts, within a couple of years, the discoloration can return. At that point, we can do a minor touch-up treatment to help you regain your youthful smile.
