Teeth whitening is the process of cosmetically altering the shade of your teeth to make them appear whiter and more attractive.
It’s strictly a cosmetic treatment and won’t affect or improve the functioning of your teeth in any way. The treatment can make a significant difference in your overall appearance and helps you feel more confident in the way your smile looks.
At The Smile Agency Orthodontics & Smile Design, Dr. Guinn helps you choose a professional teeth whitening treatment that fits your schedule, no matter how busy you are. During the planning stage, she can predict just how much whiter your teeth will get once your treatment is complete.
Dr. Guinn provides a few teeth whitening treatment options and helps you select the one that is best for you. Both options use professional solutions, so there is virtually no difference in the results that each can achieve. You can choose:
Teeth whitening is highly effective for many stains and discolorations, but there are stains that it can’t treat. One way to tell whether you can treat your teeth is to examine their color. Yellow or brown stains usually respond well to teeth whitening and are due to food, drinks, and tobacco.
If you have staining that appears gray, it may not lift with teeth whitening treatments. Gray tones usually come from traumatic injuries, medications, and dental treatments. For gray teeth, Dr. Guinn might recommend a crown or veneer instead.
If you’ve tried to whiten your teeth at home with over-the-counter products without success, call The Smile Agency Orthodontics & Smile Design or book a consultation to try professional whitening today.
