Teeth Whitening Can Brighten Smiles From Home

When you have developed unsightly stains on the surfaces of your teeth, then you could benefit from professional teeth whitening. Our team has options you can use from home to remove discoloration and offer optimal results! In today’s blog, your Austin, MN, dentists talk about our approach to professional teeth whitening.

When to Seek Teeth Whitening

When should you see us for teeth whitening? If you have unsightly yellow and brown stains on your teeth, then you should consider cosmetic dentistry to remove them and brighten your smile. Of course, you can pick up whitening strips and toothpaste at the store, but these usually offer only minor results that don’t last very long, and could also lead to tooth sensitivity. But our team can offer professional tooth whitening to brighten smiles by as much as eight shades in some cases, with results that professional to truly last. Even if you have permanent discoloration, we could discuss options like bonding or veneers to mask them and allow you to enjoy a much brighter smile.

Our At-Home Systems

Our team will start with an initial office visit, in which we take images and measurements of your smile to create a set of plastic trays, which fit your smile comfortably. You take these home with you, along with a powerful bleaching gel. Just fill the trays with gel and wear them daily for about 30 to 45 minutes. The trays ensure even results as the gel breaks up and removes teeth stains in as little as a week to ten days. We also have the Colgate at-home kit, which uses the Ionic Whitening Device and a special hydrogen peroxide gel to break up your stains in as little as ten minutes per day.

Keeping Teeth Stain-Free

Our team can discuss ways to help your new results truly last, such as improving how you brush and floss, receiving a professional cleaning every six months, and cutting back on sugar and starch in your diet. Reducing your consumption of beverages with dark pigments (coffee, soda, red wine, and tea) and avoiding tobacco products can be helpful too!

If you have any questions about how we remove teeth stains with our at-home whitening kits, or about masking them with other cosmetic treatments, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you smile with confidence and make a great first impression, whether you’re heading to a first date or a job interview.
