3 Things That Might Surprise You About Teeth Whitening

There are many issues that can make a person more reluctant to show off their smile. With that said, one particular issue – dental discoloration – can be an especially frustrating one for many people. At your local grocery store or pharmacy, you can see that many products are available that offer help with teeth stains. Unfortunately, these products can lack the potency to remove stains that have gathered over time. They are also not made to address intrinsic discoloration, or discoloration caused by issues within your tooth structure. At our Upton, MA dental office, we can help you show off a smile that is brighter and more confident. In addition to providing two different approaches to professional whitening treatment, we can offer other cosmetic dental services that address issues with discoloration that are internal.

1. You Can Actually Take Home A Professional Whitening Kit From Your Dentist

We offer two different options for patients who express interest in professional teeth whitening treatment. One of those options actually lets you take home a whitening kit and take care of your smile at your convenience! We will provide patients with advanced whitening agents as well as custom trays that are used to help them more easily apply these substances. Through your recommended daily treatments, you can fight difficult to reach stains that have settled over time and make noteworthy progress restoring the color of your teeth.

2. An In-Office Treatment Can Give You The Results You Want In Just One Appointment

If your goal for smile improvement includes results in a short time, you can make an appointment to have your teeth whitened after just one visit! During that visit, your dentist will use materials that brighten teeth to a notable degree while fighting potential issues with sensitivity. This can be a great solution for someone who wants to have their improved smile ready to show off before an upcoming event.

3. We Can Recommend Alternatives To Whitening Treatment If You Need To Address Internal Discoloration

Intrinsic discoloration can stem from more than one issue. For some people, discoloration occurs after taking certain medications, while others can worry about changes in their smile color linked to enamel erosion, or in the aftermath of a physical injury. Porcelain veneers and tooth bonding treatment are both capable of covering up this form of discoloration. For more serious issues, we can also recommend treatment with a dental crown.
