The vast majority of people will develop stains on their teeth over the course of their lives. As you get older, the white enamel on the outside of your teeth becomes thinner, revealing more of the underlying layer of yellowish dentin. Certain foods and drinks, such as coffee, wine, tea, berries, and richly pigmented sauces, can also contribute to discoloration. Tobacco use, whether you smoke or chew it, is another common reason why teeth become stained.
No matter how your pearly whites lose their luster, our treatments are designed to safely and effectively give your smile a dramatic transformation.
If you have an important event coming up soon, like a job interview or wedding, and you want to look your best, you may be a candidate for in-office teeth whitening. With this option, we can brighten your smile by six to eight shades in just one appointment that shouldn’t take more than an hour.
After isolating your teeth with a dental dam, we apply a bleaching gel that’s exponentially more potent than any whitening product you can find in stores or online. Once activated by shining a special light on it, this gel permeates the enamel of your teeth to break down even the most deeply set stains. After 15 minutes or so, we wipe off the gel, and the stains come right off with it! We can repeat this process a couple of time until you’re satisfied with the teeth you see smiling back at you in the mirror.
For patients who would prefer to brighten their pearly whites from the comfort of their own home, we also offer take-home whitening kits. Your dentist in Carrollton will begin this process by capturing impressions of your teeth, which are then used to create personalized trays. You’ll fill these trays with our powerful bleaching gel and wear them for about 30 minutes a day. While you’re wearing the trays, you’re free to do virtually anything you want at home, whether it’s getting ready for work in the morning or unwinding with your favorite television show in the evening. You may notice a difference after just a day or two, but most patients achieve optimal results after using the trays every day for two weeks.
