In order to ensure the proper care for your smile, it is important to always look for any signs of damage. Although you may have stains or discolorations that won’t cause any significant harm, they can affect the visual appearance of your smile. To properly treat your smile if you are suffering from a stain or discoloration, consider the use of a teeth whitening treatment system.

Although teeth whitening ingredients can be found in mouthwash, chewing gum, toothpaste and other products, your best options are teeth whitening treatments. Common forms are as follows:

In-Office Whitening Treatments: A professional in-office whitening treatment is applied directly by our dentist. Through the use of an in-office whitening, you can have the safest and most effective treatments, with the ability to enhance your smile by up to ten full shades in a single application.

At-Home Whitening Kits: Full whitening treatments or additional care for your smile, including minor touch-ups, can be accomplished through the use of at-home treatments provided by our dentist.

Over-The-Counter Whitening Kits: Over-the-counter whitening systems are kits bought at local stores. However, they can prove to be unreliable and are often unsafe if not used correctly. Cases have occurred in which individuals bleach their gums or damage their tooth enamel. Before using any over-the-counter products, always be sure to contact our dentist for product recommendations and suggestions.
