If you have discoloration, then you may feel uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile. Fortunately, we have several options to either remove stains or mask them, so you can smile with confidence. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist will discuss our various options to help you enjoy a more attractive smile.
Whitening at Home
If you want to whiten your teeth at home, we have a system that is designed to limit sensitivity and also address more severe cases of discoloration. To begin, we will create a set of plastic trays that fit comfortably. You return home with these trays and powerful bleaching gel. From home, you will fill the trays with the gel and wear them for about 30 to 45 minutes a day. The trays ensure even results and help prevent the gel from being diluted by saliva. After one to two weeks, teeth could be up to eight shades brighter, and the trays and leftover gel could be used for touch-ups in the coming months.
Our In-Office Procedure
We also have a procedure that could brighten teeth in-office in under one to two hours total. The Sinsational Smile system involves eating a pre-filled silicone tray, which coats the teeth in a bleaching gel. An LED light is then used to activate the bleaching ingredients in the gel. In just 20 minutes, teeth could be noticeably brighter. We also provide a special pen for touch-ups that you bring home with you!
Masking Permanent Stains
What about permanent teeth stains? Known as intrinsic discoloration, these form beneath the enamel and could be difficult to reach with traditional systems. In these situations, we could use dental bonding or porcelain veneers, or a combination of the two, to help mask them completely. These same treatments could also address misshapen teeth, close gaps between teeth, and correct other common esthetic issues at the same time.
Keeping Your Teeth Bright
To help your new results last and also improve overall oral health, we suggest daily smile care. You should start and end each day by brushing your teeth for two minutes using a fluoride toothpaste. You also need to floss every evening as well. We recommend visiting our team for checkups and cleaning every six months as well. If you have any questions about removing or masking stains, or if you would like to schedule a visit, then contact our team today.
