Teeth Whitening – Montgomeryville, PA
Turn Back the Clock on Your Smile
When you compare your current smile with photos of your younger self, do your teeth look duller now than they used to? If you envision what a youthful smile looks like, chances are that you picture a clean, bright set of teeth. Unfortunately, teeth are susceptible to staining and wear, impacting the color of your teeth and your confidence, but you don’t have to live with yellow, older-looking teeth. At Dental Innovations, we have proven treatments that can restore your brilliant, captivating smile to its former glory.
Why do teeth stain?
Although your teeth’s luster can naturally fade as you age, there are things that can significantly speed up the process or worsen the discoloration. Some of these causes include the following:
- Highly pigmented drinks and foods like coffee, chocolate, red wine, and tomato sauce.
- Using tobacco products.
- Bruxism, or the habit of grinding your teeth while you sleep.
- Certain medications.
- Failure to visit our Montgomeryville office regularly for cleanings.
- Poor oral hygiene.
What are the types of teeth whitening?
Although some minor surface stains can be removed with more mild whitening treatments, such as those found at the store, other stains go deeper into the tooth’s enamel and therefore require a stronger concentration of peroxide. At Dental Innovations, we offer two ways to remove set-in stains from your teeth using this professional-grade solution.
If you prefer the convenience of store-bought whitening treatments, you can use our powerful take-home whitening kits for about two weeks. In this short amount of time, you can achieve the dramatic results you want without having to leave your own home.
If you’d like to see your teeth up to eight shades whiter in a short period of time, to prepare for an important event for example, we can perform a quick procedure in our office using our EPIC Laser. This special laser hyper activates the whitening solution, bleaching away stubborn stains. In about an hour, you can have a significantly brighter, more confident smile.
How long do teeth whitening results typically last?
Because teeth are porous, they can reabsorb stains even after they’ve been whitened. The lifespan of your whitening treatment will greatly depend on you and your lifestyle choices. For example, if you smoke, drink coffee every day, or do the things that cause teeth discoloration in the first place, your bright smile may not last as long as you’d like. However, it’s impossible to avoid all the things that can stain your teeth, so it’s important to do the following:
- Brush and floss your teeth every day.
- Visit Dental Innovations for checkups and cleanings every six months.
- Use fluoridated toothpaste and other oral products.
- Perform touch-up treatments as needed with our take-home whitening kit.
