It might be hard to believe, but it is possible for your dentist to make your teeth dramatically whiter over the course of a single appointment. With Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed, your teeth can be made up to eight shades brighter over the course of a visit lasting around forty five minutes. However, while this is beneficial to many people, some patients will be better served with a different approach. If your smile color has dulled significantly, or if you have issues with discoloration due to internal tooth issues, your dentist can talk to you about alternative options. The field of cosmetic dentistry includes many treatments, so you should feel confident that the right approach can be found for you.
Using Advanced Whitening Treatment For Stubborn Stains
If your teeth are more significantly stained, your dentist may recommend an in-office treatment followed by daily whitening treatments you perform at home. You will receive custom-made oral trays and whitening gels, so you can properly apply your whitening treatment yourself. Receiving an at-home kit can also allow you to “touch up” your smile if you see stains affect your tooth color over time.
Using Alternative Cosmetic Treatments For Issues With Intrinsic Discoloration
Some people have issues with their smile color because of internal issues that impact their appearance. If your teeth are discolored because of this, you have what is known as intrinsic discoloration. If you need to do something about intrinsic discoloration, your dentist can talk to you about other cosmetic treatments that might benefit you. Your dentist can recommend a dental bonding treatment, or the placement of porcelain veneers. Both have been effective at dealing with problems that whitening agents have been ineffective against.
