Increase The Watts On Your Smile’s Shine

smileHave you always wanted to make your smile brighter, but don’t know how? Americans spend around $1.4 billion dollars each year on at-home smile whitening applications because it’s the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment. Some would say it’s as easy as changing a lightbulb. Nonetheless, to brighten your smile effectively removing stains and imperfections is paramount. Our team offers professional in-office and at-home teeth whitening options to brighten your smile shades at a time.

Stains And How They Come About

There are two types of stains that can affect teeth. The easiest to remove are extrinsic stains. These stains occur due to external influence like dark food, acidic beverages, or tobacco products. 

Intrinsic stains generally require more work to correct, but with patience your smile can become shades brighter. These stains usually occur due to an abundance of fluoride exposure, trauma or injury, outdated or failing dental work, or certain medications. To correct intrinsic stains, cosmetic treatments such as bonding and veneers are viable options. 

At-Home Whitening

If you prefer to whiten your teeth in the privacy of your own home, we offer take home kits by Day White®. As the next best thing to professional whitening, these trays are custom fitted and come with professional strength whitening gel. Generally, you fill the trays and wear them anywhere between 15-30 minutes, once a day. Over the course of a week you will notice a vivid shine when you smile. 

In-Office Treatment

If you choose to whiten your teeth in-office, Dr. Mai offers Zoom! It’s a whitening agent that combines hydrogen peroxide gel and a curing light to enhance the brightness of your smile in less than 45 minutes.

The doctor will coat your gums with a protective barrier. Then, she will apply the Zoom! whitening gel to your teeth. Once the gel is in place, Dr. Mai will shine the curing light on your teeth three times in 15 minute intervals. Although the in-office whitening remains slightly more expensive, you are able to whiten your smile up to eight shades brighter in one visit.
