Teeth Whitening Options:
We understand that even with over-the-counter options, certain shades and discolorations of teeth can be just too stubborn to lighten. That’s why we offer teeth whitening for our patients! Our teeth whitening services will help remove stains, discoloration, and signs of yellowing teeth and provide you with the confidence boost you need for a healthy smile. Under the care of our team at Artisan Dental, we can provide affordable treatment options to remove stains and help you have a beautiful white smile.
What You Should Know About Teeth Whitening
Discoloration can be an unappealing part of your smile, but know that we’re here to help. Professional teeth whitening works to lighten this discoloration through the use of hydrogen peroxide. While many over-the-counter options have this mixture in their products, professional whitening services offer a higher percentage of hydrogen peroxide than over the counter whiteners. When used with custom trays, the whitening gel applies evenly precisely to your specific smile.
During your dental exam with us, we work with you to understand the source of your discoloration. Tooth discoloration can often happen for a number of reasons, but we classify discoloration into different types depending on the source of the stain, the deepness of the stain, and other factors related to your oral health.
These classifications include:
- Extrinsic: These types of stains often come from culprits such as tea, coffee, wine, and poor dental hygiene. Extrinsic stains only affect the enamel surface and are usually removable through both at-home treatments and professional cleanings.
- Intrinsic: Over time, however, extrinsic stains can become intrinsic. Intrinsic stains are embedded into the enamel and are best treated by a professional whitening system.
- Age-Related Stains: Other stains can be caused by other factors not controlled by your oral habits. Aging is often one of the biggest proponents of yellowing stains.
Teeth whitening is considered safe and can be a great cosmetic option for you to help you achieve a better-looking smile.
