A beautiful smile can make a positive impact on your sense of self and how you interact with others. Teeth staining and discoloration are unavoidable consequences of time. Even if you take fantastic care of your teeth, you're likely to see some yellowing at the very least.
At Brookside Dental in Nampa, Idaho, Dr. Robbie and Dr. Jared provide effective whitening treatments with little to no impact on your oral sensitivity but a massive impact on your appearance. To find out how much brighter your teeth can get, please request your appointment by phone or online today.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening is a simple procedure that nearly anyone can get to lighten their teeth by about seven shades. At Brookside Dental, our Nampa cosmetic dentists offer take-home teeth whitening systems by Ultradent®.
Following instructions closely, you'll wear your pre-filled tray for as little as 15 minutes before disposing of it. You'll see stunning results with this treatment alone. Trays from your dentist are more comfortable and effective than nonprescription home whitening kits.
What Kinds of Discoloration Can Teeth Whitening Fix?
Teeth whitening can lift brown stains, but it's especially effective in treating yellow teeth. Stains that are easily lifted with whitening treatments come from:
- Dark-colored foods and drinks
Your teeth can also become discolored due to trauma after an accident or some medication use. If this is the case, your teeth are unlikely to respond well to whitening. If you're self-conscious about gray or brown teeth that won't brighten, we may recommend crowns or other dental devices to give you a more beautiful smile.
Will Teeth Whitening Make My Teeth Sensitive?
Many patients hesitate to whiten their teeth for fear of increased sensitivity. Ultradent's whitening products aim to minimize the wear of your enamel that results in sensitivity by adding a few strengthening ingredients along with the bleach.
Your whitening product contains potassium nitrate and fluoride to maintain the strength and resilience of your teeth. If you do notice a difference in sensitivity, it will be mild.
