When patients come to us wanting to improve the appearance of their smiles, they often express concerns over how stained their teeth have become over the years. Coffee, wine, and certain foods can cause your teeth to look yellow or brown with time. If you have a tobacco habit, they can become dark even faster.
Though darkening teeth are a natural part of aging, in our society, there is a big value placed on beautiful, bright smiles. At Magna Dental Care, we offer a couple of professional solutions to help you achieve the white, bright smile of your youth.
Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening
You can purchase many teeth whitening products over-the-counter at pharmacies and markets. Their results are inconsistent and often cause sensitivity because the trays or strips leak whitening product onto your gums.
While you may see some effects from over-the-counter teeth whitening products, they may be non-uniform or blotchy. When you whiten your teeth under the supervision of a professional dentist using professional strength products, however, you can see dramatically better results in a shorter period of time.
Take-Home Custom Teeth Whitening
Patients wishing to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home often choose custom take-home teeth whitening. We create trays just for you by taking impressions of your teeth. Your trays will last for future whitening touch-ups. Place a small drop of whitening gel in each tooth area of your tray and wear them for the recommended time. Our dentists will discuss the best duration for you.
After regular use for a couple of weeks, you will see dramatic improvement in the shade of your teeth. When your teeth become stained again, you can get more gel to keep your smile looking its best.
Reduced Sensitivity In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you want results fast, as many people do, we can provide you with low-sensitivity in-office teeth whitening. In about an hour, we can use professional whitening gel to brighten your smile. This high-powered gel sits on the surface of your teeth for about 20-30 minutes at a time, and we can repeat the process until you have great results.
How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?
You can prolong your white smile by avoiding staining foods, beverages, and tobacco, especially right after teeth whitening, when your teeth are more susceptible to stains. You should either drink through a straw or brush your teeth right after exposure to staining substances.
