All About Teeth Whitening

Whitening-KorDeepBleachEven if you have a healthy smile, this does not mean it is you have a great LOOKING smile. The teeth normally get more dark and become discolored as we age. We provide customized smile whitening that will safely and effectively give you a bright white smile. Here are just some of the kinds of stains cosmetic smile whitening can remove:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Tobacco
  • Foods
  • Tartar

Within just one appointment, you could have a brighter, younger looking smile once again.

Teeth lightening is a procedure where surface and internal stains are actually taken away from your teeth. Removal of the exterior stains begins with having your teeth fully cleaned and also polished in the office. Next, peroxide gels will be put on to your teeth at the dental office and at your home using custom molded trays which we produce for you. The gel moves through the surface and into the inside layers of your teeth introducing oxygen that removes the discolorations.

Orange, yellow and brown colored stains are usually most easily lightened, especially if they have developed with time. Blue and gray colored stains are usually much more challenging to reduce as is substantial tetracycline discoloration. Tetracycline is an antibiotic that, whenever given to small children when their permanent teeth are developing, will cause staining of those teeth in adulthood. We provide several choices in smile lightening, which are fast and effective, non-invasive procedures guaranteed to boost your confidence and self esteem and offer you a great smile. After talking about your goals and expectations, Dr. Cornwell will recommend the lightening method which is a good choice for your teeth, your schedule and your price range.

It is essential that you understand that smile whitening agents merely have an effect on tooth structure (tooth enamel, root surface and its underlying layer referred to as “dentin”). Any kind of restorative substances (fillings, porcelain veneers or crowns) you have in or on your teeth aren’t going to be lightened. This means that right after your bleaching is done, any kind of restorations not matching your brand new, whiter smile will need to get replaced.

Many over-the-counter tooth whitening products are obtainable at your local store. However, only the doctor can give you that prescription-grade smile whitening solution providing you with reliable, comfortable and sustainable results.
