Your teeth may become stained or yellowed over time for a variety of reasons, even if you are on top of your at-home dental care. Commonly consumed foods like berries, coffee, and dark-colored sauces all discolor teeth. Certain habits like smoking cigarettes or not rinsing after eating may also lead to stains.
There are many products available over-the-counter for teeth whitening, but to get the truly bright and sparkling smile you want, you should visit your cosmetic dentist for professional teeth whitening services. At the office of Dr. John Carson, we offer two options for teeth whitening that may be appropriate for your smile:
Whitening procedures in the office produce dramatic results in one sitting. Because our hygienists are able to closely monitor the whitening process, the whitening gel we use is of a higher concentration than over-the-counter products, which will produce quicker results.
- Prescription Whitening Trays
The long-lasting effects of deep whitening from a one- to two-week treatment with prescription whitening gel can remove even the toughest stains. The gel and trays are provided for you with thorough instruction from the dentist so that you can see beautiful results with minimal effort.
Consult the dentist before beginning any whitening treatment. Even if a store-bought solution is right for you, over-the-counter whitening products should only be used under the instruction of a physician. Your dentist will be able to assess the exact degree of whitening you need and guide you toward the right treatment based on your oral care history.
