Have you planned a big trip for the summer, or a small outing with friends or family? If you want a brighter smile before your next big summer gathering, then talk to our team about our professional cosmetic options. We offer Tucson, AZ, residents an in-office option that brightens smiles in one visit, or a at-home one that offers teeth brightened by several shades!
In-Office and At-Home Whitening Choices
First, let’s talk about our office-based treatment option. Our in-office option actually removes stains in about one to two hours, making this choice great for those in need of results quickly. We begin by putting a protective layer over the lips and gums, and then applying a powerful bleaching gel to the teeth. When then shine a special light to activate the gel, breaking up stains. We repeat the process as your smile is brightened by several shades.
Our at-home option addresses minor and severe cases of discoloration, and also reduces the risk of tooth sensitivity. We will create a set of trays from a comfortable plastic material. Next, we provide a bleaching gel. The patient returns home and places gel into the trays, wearing them for about 30 to 45 minutes each day. The trays help spread the gel evenly and hold it in place. The total treatment period will last about one week to ten days, helping people achieve smiles brightened by multiple shades! Both options offer benefits for our patients, and we will examine your smile to assess the cause and extent of your discoloration, recommending the most appropriate choice for your smile.
How Do I Keep My Smile Bright?
If you receive our trays and gel, you can keep the trays and any remaining gel for touch-ups as stains reappear. Also, cutting back on drinks with dark pigments, such as coffee, soda, red wine, and tea, can also reduce the presence of discoloration. Other factors behind teeth stains include sugary and starchy foods, smoking and tobacco use, and lack of proper oral hygiene. When we don’t care for our smiles, this enables plaque and stains to form. However, by brushing and flossing daily, and having your teeth professionally cleaned every six months, you can help reduce the appearance of discoloration, and enabling your new results to last and helping you maintain your bright smile for a long time to come!
