Do you feel uncomfortable with your smile’s appearance? We often see patients that feel embarrassed due to discoloration, which can make them hesitate to show off their smiles.

Frequently Asked Questions About Removing Discoloration

Question: Can you provide a take-home kit?

Answer: We can! We will send you home with a set of plastic trays, as well as a bleaching gel. Each day, you will place the gel into the tray and wear it for between a half hour and 45 minutes, depending on the dentist’s recommendations. The total treatment takes between a week and ten days. At the end of your treatment, your smile can be brightened by multiple shades.

Question: How do you brighten smiles chairside?

Answer: We apply the bleaching gel to your teeth and then use a curing light to activate the gel. Stains are then lifted from your smile in as little as one to two hours.

Question: How can I make my new results last?

Answer: First, make sure you’re brushing your teeth twice each day for two minutes each session. You should also be flossing every night before bed. Finally, make sure you’re seeing the dentist for a cleaning every six months. These preventive steps can help remove and prevent plaque, also ensuring a brighter smile.

Question: What causes teeth stains?

Answer: Stains can form as a result of plaque buildup, drinks with dark pigments (such as coffee, soda, red wine, and tea), and foods high I sugar and other starches. Smoking can also lead to stains.
