The good news about teeth stains is that they often look more serious than they are to your dental health. The bad news is that they can appear even when you take excellent care of your smile. But more good news is that professional teeth whitening can erase most common teeth stains to brighten your smile, and your confidence, without having to take much time out of your schedule!
Typical teeth stains occur on the semi-translucent layers of enamel around them, so teeth whitening works by breaking up the stain deposits and brightening the tooth structure underneath. The procedure involves safe, professional-strength bleaching gel that you can apply yourself using custom-designed trays that fit comfortably over your teeth. The take-home kit allows you to brighten your smile on your own time, and can be completed in as little as two weeks.
Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening options, professional whitening can erase even more stubborn stains with ease. After a thorough examination, your dentist can help you determine if your stains can be erased with whitening, or if you may need a more comprehensive cosmetic treatment, such as tooth bonding or porcelain veneers.
