Even though you love coffee you certainly don’t love the yellowing and stains that it causes your smile. We feel you! It’s never fun to notice that your once radiant smile is anything but. No matter whether you have a special occasion coming up or you just want to give yourself a little makeover, our Bloomington, IN, cosmetic dentist Dr. Lisa Baker is here to explain why professional teeth whitening might be the best approach for your smile.
When you want a significantly whiter smile fast, our in-office whitening system is truly the best approach.
If you’ve ever tried an over-the-counter whitening product you may notice that not much happened after your first time using it. Perhaps you wore those awkward whitening trays and let that gel remain on your teeth for an hour each night and even after a few weeks you still didn’t see the results you wanted. If this has happened to you, you aren’t alone. Many people deal with this exact same issue. If you want really beautiful and visible results without having to whiten your smile yourself then you won’t find a more effective treatment option then turning to our Bloomington, IN, family dentist for whitening.
Those stain molecules that formed under the enamel and dentin layers of your teeth were more than likely caused by the foods and drinks you’ve consumed. Smoking is also a major reason people deal with severe dental stains. Of course, there is such a high concentration of the whitening gel’s active ingredient that it actually breaks up these deep-set and stubborn stains in often just one whitening session (depending on the severity of your stains). Before we even begin, we will pull out a shade guide to show us what your smile looks like before treatment.
Next, we will clean the teeth before applying the whitening gel over the front of your teeth (a separator will be used to protect the gums and lips from coming in contact with the gel). The gel will sit on your teeth for up to 15 minutes before being removed and then reapplied. We will reapply the whitening gel 2-3 times during your one-hour whitening session. At the end of your treatment, we will pull out the shade chart one more time to show you just how much whiter we were able to get your smile. It’s that simple!
