Teeth Whitening

When we think of whitening, we often think about whitening toothpaste or other store-bought remedies like mouthwashes that claim to whiten teeth. While these products may brighten your teeth a little, they aren’t powerful enough to change the natural color of your teeth. A professional teeth whitening treatment at a dental office is the best way to safely and effectively remove stains and discoloration from your teeth to reveal a whiter smile.

There are many options for whitening treatments, including take-home trays and professional in-office treatments done in the dental chair. At Smiles of Midtown, our dentist can recommend the best treatment option for you and your situation. They will also provide you with instructions for post-treatment care to ensure that your new smile stays bright for as long as possible.

The Causes of Tooth Discoloration

Teeth naturally become discolored over time, especially if you don’t practice good oral hygiene habits. Your teeth can also become stained if you drink dark beverages like coffee and red wine or smoke cigarettes. Certain antibiotics and medications can also cause your teeth to become yellowed or darkened. 

If you are dissatisfied with the color of your smile, you may want to consider teeth whitening treatments.

The Teeth Whitening Treatment Process

The procedure for in-office teeth whitening is simple, and it begins with carefully cleaning the teeth. Then, they are coated with a special gel designed to lighten their color. The gel is left on the teeth for several minutes to work its magic. Finally, the gel is removed, and the teeth are rinsed and dried to look their best. 

Because the procedure is so simple and quick, in-office teeth whitening is a good option for patients who want immediate results or don’t have the time to undergo other types of treatments. 

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

A brighter smile can dramatically boost a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem. It can also help you feel more attractive and approachable to others. Our patients feel younger and more confident after undergoing treatment in our state-of-the-art office. Many report that they feel happier and more self-confident when they show off their beautiful white smiles in social situations.
