Your teeth will naturally become more yellow as you mature, which can make you self-conscious about your smile. Teeth can be discolored for many reasons: worn down enamel, staining, and even certain medications. Teeth also get stained by habitually drinking beverages like coffee and red wine, or from activities like smoking or chewing tobacco. Professionally whitening your teeth is the easiest way to turn back the clock on your smile!
If you want a brighter smile, professional teeth whitening is a safe, long-lasting solution. This quick, non-invasive treatment is far more effective than over-the-counter whitening treatments or brushing with whitening toothpaste. At Dr. Saba and Associates, we use a home teeth whitening kit that changes the color of your enamel, making your teeth whiter.
If you have discolored teeth, and you’ve been looking for an effective remedy to whiten them, our dentists are here to help! Anyone with discolored teeth can benefit from professional teeth whitening treatments. It’s important that you have good gum health, so your gums don’t get irritated by the whitening solution.
If you have fillings or crowns, we’ll make sure they’re in good condition before the whitening process begins, to prevent any discomfort. Because whitening treatments only work on natural teeth, we can replace your crowns or fillings after the whitening process so they match your new tooth color.
Teeth whitening can usually be completed in just two appointments. At the first appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth so we can create custom, clear plastic trays. Once the trays are ready, you will try them on to make sure they fit properly and we will make any necessary adjustments.
To whiten your teeth, you’ll need to wear the trays with the whitening gel either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a few weeks. The length of time you need to wear the trays will depend on how much whitening your teeth require.
While you are whitening your teeth, it’s normal for your teeth to be sensitive, but sensitivity will fade after you stop using the whitening trays. It’s important to remember that teeth whitening isn’t permanent, but you can wear your trays for “touch-up” treatments as needed.
