As we eat and drink, we constantly stain our teeth. It’s just a fact of life. Drinking that morning cup of coffee or tea is going to stain the enamel of your teeth, as will that evening glass of wine or the berries in your dessert. Tobacco and simple aging can also make your teeth appear more yellow. Therefore, every now and then, you’ll want to visit Skyview Ranch Dental Clinic for a teeth-whitening session.
While whitening strips and toothpaste found in many stores can remove some surface stains, our professionals can give you a whiter white with chairside bleaching. We go below the surface to actually bleach your teeth, breaking down stains for a dramatically brighter smile. To accomplish this, your Skyview Ranch dentist will apply a whitening gel to your teeth and then use a special light to activate the gel while you sit in the chair. Individual results will vary but you can expect a brighter smile in a single appointment.
Alternately, we can send you home with an at-home bleach kit. The gel in these kits contains hydrogen peroxide and comes in mouth-shaped trays. Just bite down on the trays for a specified length of time for a more luminous smile. But remember, at-home teeth whitening kits are typically not as effective as the in-office procedure.
Dentists agree that achieving lasting results from teeth whitening depends entirely on you – whether you continue to eat and drink staining foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine and berries. We suggest that you avoid them as much as possible. Results will also last longer if you floss regularly and use a whitening toothpaste at least twice a day. This will help keep surface stains to a minimum. Anytime you feel you need a touch-up, just come in to our dental clinic! Please note that some tooth stains such as those from medications cannot be whitened effectively. In such cases, we usually recommend veneers.
