Frequently Asked Questions About Achieving Brighter Smiles
Question: Do you have teeth whitening?
Answer: We do! After creating a custom-made and comfortably fitting set of plastic trays, we prescribe the patient a bleaching gel. At home, the patient fills the trays with the bleaching gel and then wears it or between a half hour to 45 minutes a day. After about one to two weeks patients can often enjoy smiles brightened by multiple shades!
Question: What if I have permanent teeth stains?
Answer: Most teeth stains are extrinsic and form on the surface of the teeth. These we can easily remove with teeth whitening. However, intrinsic stains, also known as permanent discoloration, form below the enamel, often the result of injury to the tooth, fluorosis, or tetracycline use. Fortunately, we can mask these stains. For example, we can use dental bonding to cover them up in one visit.
Question: Will veneers help?
Answer: We can use veneers to address a wide array of cosmetic concerns, from permanent discoloration to misshapen or damaged teeth. We can also close gaps between the teeth or correct the appearance of minor misalignment. In as little as two visits we can transform your smile with these custom-made and lifelike dental restorations.
Question: How do I keep my smile bright from home?
Answer: Following treatment you can help ensure your new results last by brushing twice a day and flossing every night before bed. You should also take time to see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning.
