Teeth change color and become darker with age. Even those who keep up with daily oral hygiene and routine dental cleanings can experience darker teeth as they get older. Dark pigmented foods and beverages can stain teeth, but aging alone can make the teeth less bright. Professional teeth whitening is the ideal cosmetic dentistry treatment for bringing back a white, healthy smile. At Roswell Complete Dentistry, we offer both in-office and at-home teeth bleaching options at our dental center in Roswell, GA.
Coffee, tea, nicotine, red wine, berries and other substances can stain your teeth. Your tooth enamel is porous, and it can absorb the pigments from these substances. Over-the-counter products for teeth whitening like toothpastes and strips can help remove some stains, but they are not as effective as professional teeth whitening products. They also may not be as effective at rejuvenating teeth that have become dull with aging.
Professional Teeth Whitening
In-office professional teeth whitening can give you the brighter, whiter smile you want in about an hour. This is the fastest way to achieve an attractive and youthful smile, especially if you have a big event coming soon like a wedding or reunion. To bleach your teeth several shades, we use a whitening gel that is applied to the teeth. A special light activates the whitening gel to bleach the teeth to the desired shade. Our dental team will carefully monitor the treatment to ensure safe and beautiful results.
At-Home Teeth Bleaching
Another option for creating a brighter smile is our customized at-home whitening kits. These include trays that are customized to fit your teeth for even application of whitening gel. These trays can be used every day with bleaching gel in the privacy of your own home. It does take longer to get the shade desired, usually about two weeks. However, this method is less expensive and patients can use their kit to maintain the desired whiteness.
Whitening your teeth is the quickest way to improve the appearance of your smile. To learn more about professional teeth whitening, contact us at Roswell Complete Dentistry to schedule a consultation at our office in the Alpharetta and Roswell, GA, area.
