You may notice over time that your smile has become dull, yellowed or stained. If this has happened to you, our dentist and team can help. RM Advanced Center for Cosmetic Dentistry provides teeth whitening to quickly brighten your teeth and give you back a brilliant, radiant white smile.
Staining and discoloration may occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- The natural aging process
- Certain foods and drinks (tea, wine, coffee, soda, etc.)
- Smoking and other forms of tobacco usage
- Poor oral hygiene
- Illness and certain medications
- Fluorosis (a condition which occurs when the teeth receive too much fluoride while developing)
Teeth whitening is a simple and fast way to improve the appearance of your smile. Depending on the type of whitening treatment you receive, you could even leave our office after one appointment with a brighter smile!
There are two main types of teeth whitening available: in-office whitening and take-home whitening.
When you receive in-office teeth whitening, our dentist and team apply a powerful whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. This gel, in combination with a special laser, works to lighten the color of your teeth and produce a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your teeth and smile.
Take-home whitening is similar. However, instead of a laser, you will be fitted with custom whitening trays and provided with whitening gel. The gel is placed in the trays and then worn as directed by our dentist. Over a period of several weeks, this gel will lighten the stains and discolorations on your teeth to give you a whiter smile.
When you visit RM Advanced Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we will discuss your smile goals with you to determine which type of whitening will help you achieve the aesthetic you desire. Please be aware that you may occasionally need to return to our office for further whitening treatments to “touch up” your smile.
