Ready for a transformed smile this summer? Your Burbank, CA, dentist is ready to help remove your teeth stains with two unique teeth whitening treatments, one you can use from home and another available at our office. Which one is right for you, and what steps can you take to help avoid future discoloration?
Avoid Stains This Summer
First, let’s talk about the causes of teeth stains. Often, the foods and drinks we consume lead to discoloration. Beverages with dark pigments, such as soda, tea, red wine, and coffee, could cause discoloration. Foods and drinks high in sugar and starch, which promotes plaque buildup, also allow stains to appear. To help control stains, try to drink more water and enjoy healthier snacks, such as fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, cheeses, and whole grain items. Make time to brush your teeth for two minutes when you wake up and again before bed, and floss every night before bed too. Be sure you attend cleanings every six months too, so we can keep smiles bright by removing plaque and tartar buildup.
Whitening at Home
If you have discoloration, then we can help with our professional teeth whitening options. First, for those with more severe cases of discoloration, we may suggest the home-based option. After taking detailed impressions of your smile with digital technology, we create a set of plastic trays. We then send you home with these custom trays and a bleaching gel. Each day, you will fill the trays with gel and wear them for about 30 to 45 minutes. The total treatment time is usually between a week and ten days, depending on the severity of your discomfort. For many, teeth could achieve a state brightened by several shades! Of course, you keep your trays and any leftover gel for future treatments.
Whitening in Our Office
We also have a system that offers noticeable results in as little as one to two hours! If you need fast results, we can remove discoloration from the surfaces of your teeth in one sitting. The procedure starts with the dentist placing a protective covering over your lips and gums. Next, we apply a bleaching gel to the teeth and use a special light to activate it. We repeat the process to help you obtain a vibrant and stunning smile. If you have any questions, then contact our team today.
