Discoloration of the smile can happen over time from the foods and drinks we enjoy, as well as the natural thinning of tooth enamel. This allows dentin, the yellow substance that formulates the core of the natural tooth, to show through and cause a yellowish tint to the smile. Patients who want to combat this problem are encouraged to consider teeth whitening with special types of bleach at the dental office.
We offer two methods of teeth whitening. The first is his in-office whitening which allows for a bleaching process monitored by a dental professional to quickly rejuvenate the smile in a short period of time. Most patients can enjoy the application of a high-concentration peroxide gel and enjoy a more beautiful appearance in just one hour in the dental chair. The alternative is the take-home whitening kits. These include custom trays from the dentist that are sent home along with high-concentration bleaching gel that is used with the trays and worn for a specific period of time each day. Patients enjoy a gradual enhancement of the smile with this method and can perform the whitening in the privacy of their own home. To determine which one is right for you, contact Edna Dentistry to schedule a consultation appointment and discuss the options that are most appropriate for your specific needs and budget.
