The number one desired cosmetic improvement is a whiter smile. Patients near and far and of all ages are wanting to improve the look of their smile by improving the color. It’s a simple, straightforward way to make a drastic improvement to your smile without undergoing a lot of cosmetic work.
In fact, whitening can make such a huge impact that you won’t need any other work done! Sometimes that stellar color really draws the attention away from any other flaws and areas you don’t like. You might decide to make those changes later, but whitening can make a big difference!
Natural Stain Causes
So, how did your smile get in this shape anyway? There are many, many things that can cause stains to your teeth. As you age, your teeth will inevitably darken due to a lifetime of exposure, but some things will expedite that process. Let’s take a quick look at those things below.
Beverages: Things like coffee, tea, soda, and red wine can have a big impact on your smile if consumed regularly. Especially if you sip on the beverage throughout the day or night.
Foods: Dark berries and tomato sauce cause lead to stains of your teeth in consumed on a routine basis.
Antibiotics: A little-known cause of teeth staining is the use of some antibiotics. Very few whitening treatments are able to deal with the deep staining caused by antibiotics.
Our Options for You!
Regardless of the level of staining you have, we offer fantastic options to help you get the smile of your dreams! We can even tackle those tetracycline stains caused by antibiotics!
Lumibrite Same-Day Whitening
One option for in-office whitening comes in the form of Lumibrite. Lumibrite allows us to change your smile by up to seven shades in a single sitting! That’s a huge, dramatic difference in such a short amount of time.
It’s also a chance for you to get some extra fluoride for your teeth. Whitening often leads to sensitive teeth, especially if you do it through boxed kits from the drugstore that take months upon months to complete. Immediately after your whitening treatment, we will give you a fluoride treatment to protect your teeth from sensitivity pain!
KöR Deep Bleaching™
For deep whitening needs, we recommend KöR Deep Bleaching. KöR is a revolutionary treatment that removes deep tetracycline and tobacco stains in a very short amount of time.
You actually get to do the treatment in the comfort of your own home, which many of our patients love. We will create custom whitening trays for your smile and send you home with whitening solution and directions. The rest is up to you!
KöR has the potential to whiten your teeth by up to 16 SHADES! That’s double the whitening of the next best thing!
Even with whitening as stellar as Lumibrite and KöR, there are some smiles that are so discolored that we really cannot do anything more. We can make an improvement, but it might not be all that you want for your smile.
In those cases, a more extreme improvement is necessary. We recommend EZ Veneers, which are beautiful veneers that we can place in a single appointment. Unlike porcelain, EZ veneers allow us to prepare your teeth, fit the veneers, and bond them in place while you sit comfortably!
As you can see, we have a whitening solution for any and every smile. We can help you achieve the smile you want in the shortest amount of time possible!
