Have you been longing for whiter, brighter teeth? Teeth Whitening is one of the quickest and safest cosmetic dentistry procedures to transform your smile. At Frankston Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of options depending on your individual needs.
What Are the Causes of Tooth Discoloration?
Teeth can become discolored for many reasons including consuming certain foods and drinks with staining agents, smoking or chewing tobacco, and poor dental hygiene. Discoloration can also result from trauma to your teeth from an injury or infection, or even the natural thickening of dentin with age. There are many other factors behind stained and yellow teeth, including certain diseases or medications.
Teeth Whitening Trays
Whitening trays offer an easy solution to brighten your smile. We will first take an impression of your teeth to create a custom fit tray. At your next appointment, we will send the tray home along with a carbamide peroxide gel, which is stronger in concentration and more effective than over the counter bleaching kits. You will wear the trays overnight, or for a few hours during the day as directed until you achieve your desired level of whitening.
In Office Teeth Whitening
Also known as chairside bleaching, in office whitening delivers the best teeth whitening results. During your appointment, we will apply a more concentrated bleaching agent to your teeth and activate it with a special light. You will love your noticeably whiter teeth and will see even brighter results over the next few days. We will provide you with trays to help maintain your white, bright smile.
Home Teeth Whitening
There are many over the counter whitening methods available to you including whitening toothpaste, trays, gels, whitestrips, and more. With prolonged use, you will begin to see some whitening results. However, if your teeth or gums are sensitive, it's best to use professional treatments or custom trays from a dentist’s office to help avoid irritation.
