Everyone knows that teeth are supposed to be white, so if you have teeth that are no longer white but are now dull, stained or showing their age it can become embarrassing and maybe even unhealthy. Teeth get stained or get dull for many different reasons including aging, eating certain staining foods and beverages, smoking, taking some medications for a prolonged period of time and illness. Luckily, our 43537 cosmetic dentist at the Everson Dental Clinic has teeth whitening treatments that can restore your teeth close to their original luster.
Our 43537 cosmetic dentist can provide whitening treatments in the office or for you to do in the convenience of your own home on your own schedule. This at home whitening procedure is our most popular whitening alternative. First our doctor will take impressions of your teeth from which our lab will fabricate a set of clear, snug-fitting plastic trays, which will hold a clinical strength bleaching solution against your teeth. It is these trays, which provide even and constant contact of the solution with the teeth that makes our whitening system so much more effective than the one-size fits all whitening kits available in the drugstore. The patient uses the trays for 1 -2 hours each day, or overnight for severely discolored teeth for 1 – 2 weeks depending on the degree discoloration. After the treatment the patient’s natural teeth will be several shades whiter.
Another alternative to whiten teeth on a more permanent basis is the use of porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are bonded over the front of the teeth. Our 43537 dental office uses sets of white veneers over the front teeth to whiten your whole smile and cover any chips or cracks. Don’t live with dull or stained teeth; make an appointment with our office to discuss your whitening options.
