Strictly speaking, you won’t die from stained teeth. But why bear the embarrassment of yellow/brown teeth when you can have sparkly whites? At Rider Dental, we offer several solutions to give you a healthy and beautiful smile, including teeth whitening.
Teeth can become discolored or stained from many possible causes including smoking and drinking coffee/tea. Some medications can lead to discoloration in your teeth as well.
While you may want to try some over the counter measures, your best bet is to discuss the matter with a dentist so we can recommend safe and more effective solutions.
One option we offer is in-office teeth whitening. This procedure is great for those with seriously discolored teeth and want faster results. We protect your gums and other soft tissues by applying a protective cream, and then we apply the whitening gel over your teeth. We often use laser to make the whole process go faster.
If you want to save money and do it yourself at home, we can prescribe an effective at-home teeth whitening kit for you to use. This may also be your best option if you want a gradual change in the color of your teeth so the improvement isn’t abrupt and noticeable. The kit will need at least 10 treatments, and you also get a customized mouth guard to make sure that the whitening agent remains in place on your teeth.
If you think your teeth aren’t as white as they ought to be, give us a call and we can discuss your options during your visit.
Whether you want your teeth whitened quickly or slowly, it can certainly be done! Discolored teeth may not harm your health, but it can wreak havoc on your emotional well-being and your social life. Consider our teeth whitening solutions, and we can make sure you can smile confidently once again.
