Treatment Options For Patients Who Want Whiter Teeth

Changing your diet and your approach to oral hygiene can help you prevent the buildup of new enamel stains, but existing stains can continue to bother you. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can deal with discoloration so that you no longer feel self-conscious about the way you look! Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office can arrange a professional whitening treatment with you to deal with dental discoloration. Patients are able to choose between an in-office whitening treatment and a whitening kit that you take home. For those who have issues with discoloration caused by something other than stains, we can review the benefits of other cosmetic procedures. With the right treatment selected, we can help you show off truly stunning smile improvements!

Is Teeth Whitening Treatment Always The Right Choice?

For many people, a take-home or in-office whitening procedure will deliver ideal results. Both are effective at removing extrinsic stains (stains picked up from products you consume), even taking care of stains that have settled below the surface layer of your enamel. With that said, those with internal problems that affect their tooth color can benefit from other treatment options. Because we offer free cosmetic consultations, we can look into what has caused your discoloration and determine what the right treatment approach might be.

Arranging Your Cosmetic Procedure

Whitening treatments target the stains that dull a person’s enamel over time. If you choose to have your teeth whitened in the office, we can help you see significant results after just one visit. During your time in the dentist’s chair, we will stimulate the effects of your bleaching agents with a special light. A take-home kit uses bleaching agents that are capable of making significant changes without the use of this light. By committing to daily applications of this material, you will be able to gradually brighten your smile until you see results that match what an in-office treatment can offer.

If something other than stains is responsible for your discoloration, we can recommend moving forward with a different cosmetic procedure. Intrinsic discoloration can be effectively hidden when porcelain veneers are placed on a person’s teeth, or through a tooth bonding procedure. These treatments are both effective at positively changing the color, shape, and size of teeth, leading to many improvements!

Tips For Maintaining A Bright Smile After Cosmetic Treatment

Making changes in your diet to avoid new teeth stains can be recommended after a whitening treatment. Doing this while sticking to thorough brushing and flossing habits can give you an effective front against new problems with discoloration. These improved habits, along with regular checkups with your dentist, can help a patient remain confident in their appearance!
